Riley Weight Loss - Update 4
I took Riley in for his annual exam, and the vet said he looked great! His weight is 43lbs, which is 1.5lbs less than he was at his last visit 6 months ago. I know that doesn't seem like a lot of difference, but it's a 3% weight loss, and we'll take it! We're getting closer and closer to the goal. I can't believe he's lost 17lbs since we started this (that's a 28% weight loss!). Lots of people have commented on how much skinnier he looks, but I have a hard time seeing it since I'm around him so much. I did notice it last time I got back from a vacation though. He seemed smaller! I think our overall goal will be to get his weight to about 35-38lbs. I get the feeling I'll be looking to lose weight too, come spring of next year, so hopefully we can experience some success together.
