      Update on Sam's weight

      I took Sam in to be weighed yesterday. He was 94.9 pounds! I was very happy. He started out weighing 99.6 pounds on April 12. I think he looks really good now but we're going to to to get him down a couple more pounds. At that point, I have no idea how to go from weight loss mode to maintenance so that should be interesting.

      Looking good Sam!

      It's a balancing act with Mardi. I keep my eye on her and adjust good accordingly.

      So you haven't cut his food back anymore right? Isn't this around 2 pounds less than the last time? Looking good!

      Way to go Sam! I would need to write everything down daily (food intake, activity, etc.) and observe my dog, see what best combination keeps him fit. To find a true maintenance plan. I already got a binder for the pup. lol

      No, we didn't cut his food back any more, and yes he lost about 2 pounds! We're not sure why he gained a couple weeks ago. Maybe it was the vet's scale. They have the scale located along the wall and I think that is messing things up. The first time we had him sit on it yesterday, it said 91.1 pounds. I was like no way did he lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks and then I realized Sam's butt was against the wall. We zeroed the scale and weighed him twice more and he was 94.9 and 94.7 pounds so hopefully we got an accurate weight. I really do think he looks good.

      He is looking good. Candy is going through the same thing right now. She needs to lose about 3-5lbs more.

      Great job! Patches has lost four pounds in the last fourish months. She feels great and looks much better. I am trying to find the maintenance amount for her now.
