Being the hypochondriac that I am, I recently was thinking I either have an overactive thyroid gland or cancer, because despite my lack of gym visits, I am losing weight. (btw, I am not writing this post in any way to brag or to annoy those who are trying to lose weight, I just have found his occurrence amusing) So anyway, I have been preplexed about my increasing need to hike up my dress pants...until this Friday. I raced home on my lunch break in order to let Maggie out for her bathroom break and walk. I was late and my morning of patients was rather hellish. I quickly nuked some leftover spaghetti and meatballs, but only had time for about 4 bites before I had to attend to Maggie again, get her crated again and head back to work.
Finally I realized I am on a puppy diet! Maggie has caused me to lose significant lunch hour time (my FAVORITE meal of the day), take 2-3 walks/day, and lose my late night snack because she will not allow me to lay back and eat ice cream on the couch without shoving her face in the bowl.
So, for those who are working hard at trying to lose weight out there, let me know. Forget all of that marathon training and South Beaching. I'll let you puppy sit any time!
