Default Chico's Diet Progress

I am taking inspiration from flippedstars' diet for her doggie(Laurel). I want to get Chico down to a weight he should be..... if she can do it.... I can too! ( I hope)

Laurel's b4 and after post...

This diary will be for Chico's progress, pics, weight chart, measurements. I will update every 2 weeks. The OFFICIAL first day of his diet will be August 30, 2010 as I have a business trip next week(Orlando) and my son will be keeping Chico and start the diet....Hopefully by Christmas he can get into some of his cute little coats he owns.... and by making this diary I hope to get support from you all and the push I need from time to time to keep him on it......

so... how does it go?....

ONCE upon a time......................

Awww Jan - he is just so huggable!!! He looks like a little teddy bear. I love him and I admire you for wanting him to be as fit and trim as possible! I will be behind you all the way being Chico's cheerleader!

Hehe he does just have this little beggar's face! I just hope he doesn't have the ability to look like a starved child like Laurel did. It was brutal but its sooo worth it in the end. YOU CAN DO IT!

I think you will be amazed...it looks like 4 lbs could come off him easy Since you mentioned some joint issues, you may want to add a joint supplement into his diet as well, I don't have a great recommendation though, as we currently are searching for one ourselves...I know Tracy uses Hylox and we were thinking about trying that next Its cheap on Amazon right now...Amazon.com: Hylox Soft Chews (120 Ct): Home & Garden

Chico is already on a joint supplement.... has been for over 6 months now.... I just think the weight now is starting to bother his little knee much more... I see him sitting when most dogs would be standing.... he sits or lies down instead of standing so I know something is going on....
I will be sure and get some fish oil for him...
thank you for all of your help.... I hope I can be as strong as you.... *hugs*

instructions I have given my son for the week I am gone....


2 different diet recipes.... you can feed either one.... as long as he gets 2 meals a day...


RECIPE 1:

12 pieces of lowfat kibbles (Innova Low Fat Adult)
1/3 cup canned No Salt french cut green beans (Delmonte brand)
1/3 cup warm water
Microwave until warm(if Green beans have been in Refrigerator).... serve twice a day...

OR

RECIPE 2:
2 teaspoons of Canned food (Innova Lower Fat Adult)
(kinda heaping spoonfuls with just your normal spoon that you use everyday)
1/3 cup canned No Salt french cut green beans
1/3 cup warm water
Mix well, making a sort of gravy....
Microwave until warm(if canned food has been in Refrigerator).... serve twice a day..



He will probably like the canned food recipe more than the kibble recipe but either can be fed...
..Chico may turn his nose up at the Green Beans but eventually he will get over it. Just make sure Buster don't eat them or his stomach may be upset and have Diarrehea.

NO TREATS!!
NO TABLE SCRAPS!!
NADA...

Lots of Exercise, if possible...
