First a note to say thank you so much for your responses about Chloe. As an update, she has not really changed much. She has paralysis of her back right leg, and her tail. Makes it look a bit weird, as the tail curls up. My biggest concern for her is that she is also blind, so with walking problems we have confined her to one bedroom so that she can’t fall down the stairs or otherwise hurt herself. She still manages to make it to the litter pan (pretty much), and eats and drinks and sleeps in her little kitty bed. Seems happy, although unsure of what is going on when she tries to walk around. Old age in pets is a hard thing. I won’t be posting about her here again unless something drastic happens either way, as this isn’t what this blog is about. I imagine she will just plod along like the little trooper she is 🙂
I am back on track eating wise today. That was the first time in a long time that I stress ate quite that much. I had been able to stop myself in the past from stress eating, but need to figure out why I failed this time. Well, I guess I know why – serious emotional stuff, right? But I must find some lesson in this.
It’s really scary knowing how easy it would be to put 100 pounds back on. Much easier that it has been to take it off, that’s for sure! And probably a lot quicker, too. I have come to think of obesity as a disease for me, that I have to ‘medicate’ with diet and exercise for my whole life. It’s not really curable, but it is manageable.
