Tanner continues to do well on his diet, um, lifestyle change...another praise this week!
Current weight 19lbs 5oz...a loss of 7 ounces!
This was a pretty big jump, and we don't expect to see that every week, but it is good to know the plan is working.
He definitely has more energy and desire to move. He asks to play with his string toys every morning and evening. He will walk down the hall to follow the string as opposed to waiting for it to come back to him! He rolls around on the floor still, but it is more athletic looking rather than beached whale floundering on the coast.
I think this diet is easier for us to stick to because we had already been feeding on a schedule and Tanner was used to it. We have also learned how to ration the food more effectively on the weekends when we are home...he tends to beg when he sees you, if you are in the kitchen, and it can be hard to not give in.
Things we have noticed and are keeping an eye on:
- Softer poops from all the canned food. He seems to be firming back up a bit now...
- Chin acne, I suppose from the canned food getting on his face more... I am using a flea comb to comb the 'dirt' off his chin.
- Not worrying about this, but it is nice to see...his skin is less dry. Usually when I brush him, around his back, near the tail, there are dandruff flakes, but lately I've not seen as much of that.
Again, thanks to everyone for checking in on Tanner and for sending those 'thin' thoughts!
We will try to get back to more posts, but for now we will continue with the weekly Weight Loss Wednesday updates.
