We’re currently preparing to have guests stay with us this weekend (yay St. Patrick’s Day parade & related festivities!), so in the absence of time, here’s a little picture post for y’all.
My cat Chelsea and I have gained weight together during the last 5+ years. When we rescued her in 2007, she was seriously underweight. Of course we proceeded to give her whatever she wanted. Now she’s rather large (I say that with all the love in the world, and with the knowledge that Maine Coons are quite large anyway). I, however, don’t have an excuse for my corresponding weight gain, as I was not a hungry stray looking for love and an endless supply of food. I just got overweight because I, well, did.
Here’s a pictorial account of Chelsea’s steps toward accepting her full figure.
One: Admit you have a problem?
Three: Take a good, hard look at yourself.
Four: Take action.
Five: Always relax after a workout.
Seven: Get some fresh air.
Nine: Accept who you are – an eating machine.
