As you all know I have come off of Medifast and I was pretty nervous to get on the scale this morning. I almost didnt actually. But then I said, "it is what it is and that's it". This is not a game. This is my life. Get on and face it and then see what it says next week. To my shock....the reading was(about 5 times) 165.5!!! Down 4 pounds from last Thursday!!! Wow!!!!! What is going on here? I have been counting calories but thought for sure with the carbs added in I would have a gain. I feel a little more at ease now about eating like a normal person(while counting calories of course).
Today the girls and I left the house to go to the gym. We went into the garage and heard a loud meowing. I followed it and there was a cat in a box. She jumped out and clearly wanted to be pet. She was obviously hungry too. I picked her up and was so sad to feel that she was so skinny...just skin and bones really. I gave her some food with my husband tellling me that we cant keep it and feeding it will only keep her here. I did it anyway. She is so skinny and was very appreciative of the food. We went to the gym and when we got home....she/he was there howling for us. She came right over when we got out of the truck and the poor thing just wants love. We have 3 cats and I would love to keep her but just dont have the money for that first vet bill right now. Our central air goes in next week and that clears out the savings! They have to test for FIV and leukemia(in order to be with other cats) plus the visit, deworming, distemper, rabies..etc. It goes on and on. I am such an animal lover and dont want her to suffer! It was chilly here last night so I am sure that is why she had herself nuzzled into a box for warmth. She is outside my house howling to come in. When we came in she was trying to get in too (while the dog was trying desperately to get out to see what was going on!). Here are some pics I took with my phone.
