(This is her OH.MY.GOD.I.LOVE.CARROTS picture)
It's been about 6 weeks since we started and we're in a good routine with her meals, walks and play time for exercise. Today we had a vet appointment and although she's got a little skin infection around her eye (boo!) the good news is - her weight is FINALLY going in the right direction. Now it's not much, so far she's only lost .2 lbs but when you've been struggling for months and seeing the numbers go up and up .2 lbs down is a victory, even if just a minor one. We talked with the vet some more and decided to cut her calories down just a little bit more and we'll check her weight again in a month. So, although it's not a big loss and we've still got 8 pounds to go - we're .2 closer to that goal! Hooray Astrea!!
