    Default I have two chubby-wubbies

    Well, today Tate got weighed in at the Vet's office and after several weeks of what I thought was healthy eating, my baby is now over 70 lbs! When he was around 64 lbs, the vet wanted him to get down to 60 or below. That was back in March sometime. Then there's Finn. My "little" boy has now hit the 60 lb mark! He used to be a trim 55 lbs, then 57 lbs a couple weeks ago.

    For the obvious health reasons and b/c my vet recommends it, I'd really like their weight to go down. I think for Tate it would be more realistic to be in the mid 60 lb range and for Finn, mid 50's.
    I'm just not really sure where to start cutting back. I admit to showering them with treats several times a day when I'm at home and then there's dessert almost every night (a little vanilla ice cream mixed with pumpkin and plain yogurt). I suppose i could cut back on those...I think this is going to be harder on me than them b/c I just hate depriving them of goodies and they so love to eat!

    If anyone can share some successful weight loss tips for bullies I would appreciate it!

    I'd love to hear those bully weight loss tips too! Dudley is 80 lbs or so..I'd like him to be between 70 and 75lbs! I try NOT to give the treats -- oh and he HATES frozen green beans -- but the whining and crying drives me crazy. He whined the other night for 40 minutes! I thought I would go out of my mind!

    Just cut back a little on their food, treats and dessert and you will get that weight off in no time.

    YIKES.... cut out the ice cream/pumpkin EVERY night... make it a weekly treat and maybe trim back the food and give a filler (green beans, maybe)

    I'm a total wimp when it comes to him. And I try so hard because I know it's not good...but that face...and that whining...like he's saying "please Mommy, please!!!" I'm a bad mommy!

    Well, this evening there will be no dessert. I'm just telling the boys that Aunt Christine, and Uncles David and Phil are meanies and said NO MORE DESSERT!
    Instead, after dinner we are playing and running around. @2BullyMama , @Davidh, @pdolphin27

    Also...I just put Tate in his Halloween outfit for the first time since we have the costume parade tomorrow for SCBR and guess what? it doesn't fit him around the neck! It's an XXL too. I'm going to put him in last year's pumpkin tee shirt instead. It's kind of tight on him but it will show off those muscles!

    Seriously! Now that it's cooler, I'm walking Dudley more. And, playing soccer and frisbee in the yard!

    That's good, @DudleysMom! Increased physical activity and then cutting out a snack here and there will be healthy ways to get some weight off our bullies. Nothing drastic, just small steps!
