Hi everyone! I am here with more weight loss tips. Apparently, the tips I gave last month did not help Mom or my sister, KaTwo. Neither lost weight and I personally think they actually gained a little.

As you may recall, I suggested not finishing a meal and to always leave something on your plate. Neither followed my advice. Mom did stop eating chocolate for Lent, but the minute it was over she went right back to her old ways. Plus, she substituted Reese's Pieces (those little candy-coated peanut butter snacks ET loved so much) the entire 6 weeks of Lent because they are peanut butter, not chocolate, but they contain just as many calories.

Phoebe and the kitty weightsI also suggested pole dancing as exercise, but KaTwo didn’t want to use my pole and Mom isn’t allowed to use it for fear of it breaking. I decided they should try something else like weight lifting. I even got KaTwo this kitty set of weights, but I don’t think she understands the directions.

Ka-Two turns her back on the kitty weightsI am not sure what my Mom was thinking, but she gave away her treadmill. At least she got exercise moving it up from the basement. She claims she never used it and she wanted to declutter. Someone recommended a walking DVD to her though that she has on order at the library. It is actually in, but she doesn’t seem to realize that she needs to pick it up and actually put it in the DVD player to follow along with it.

I am starting to think neither of them is going to ever lose weight. I just don’t understand why they can’t. I eat a little and work it off on my pole so I stay quite thin. I will have to come up with some more tips if these don’t get them motivated. See you next month with an update.

The Very Best Toy for Cats

"Of all the [cat] toys available, none is better designed than the owner himself. A large multipurpose plaything, its parts can be made to move in almost any direction. It comes completely assembled, and it makes a noise when you jump on it."
