well I just got a call from guide dogs. they want to come out and do aftercare with me and nitro. Its been ages since we had any visit from them. i’m so nervous. i havent really worked him a lot in the past couple of months. we just havent done a lot of work around where I am living. so I am going to be honest with the guy coming out and tell him that. nitros 8 now, so getting near retirement. well they retire generally at 9 or 10. but the lady I spoke to on the phone said its a process and can take a while. but to be honest I dont want another dog. I want to keep nitro when he retires and I couldnt manage two dogs. So I am probably not getting another dog. I’ll talk to this aftercare guy about it. But the likelihood is I wont. Not until nitro passes on. And even then I am not sure if I will. I love having a dog but I just feel like I may not be able to have another one. And I am definitely not rehoming nitro. Some people see their guide dog as a working dog only. I see mine as a pet and a companion too. So I am not giving him up. The guy doing the aftercare, I dont know him. He’s new to the guide dog school. I hope he’ll be nice. I have to get nitro’s vet record filled out. I was a little bit lax about it lately. So now I have to go to the vets on saturday so they can fill it out. The aftercare is next tuesday morning. Im just hoping everything will go well. I just will have to be totally honest with the trainer and tell him the truth. If you pray please pray everything goes well for us.
Today I am grateful for the following!
My supervisor at my volunteer job for a ride to work
My furbaby, nitro!
My nice warm house!
Distractions like tv and books
A hot cup of tea or coffee!
A hot shower!
That I am feeling relatively happy!
So well, after weigh in tonight I was up 1 pound! So not much. I can live with that. I set myself a target to lose 3 pounds next week, I hope I can. I’m going to really try my hardest to do that this coming week!
A lot of us in group had gains tonight. Not the end of the world I guess! I will just have to give it my all and hope for better results next time!
I am still down 2 stone 7.5 pounds! Or for my US readers, thats 35.5 pounds!

Off to be weighed now. Another week gone by. Where did the time go!
I am thinking I wont be down any weight this week. I wasnt at my best. I didnt do all the right things. I did some, just not all. I ate some things I shouldnt have eaten. So if I do lose anything, I’ll be very surprised. But you never know, I might just surprise myself.
So fingers crossed guys! wish me luck!
Time to go to therapy! Oh I am excited!
Two whole weeks since we’ve seen Eileen! I need a big bear hug from her!
I am so looking forward to our session!
Im sure it’ll be amazing! And productive too!
Better get moving now or I’ll be late!
So, I smashed it tonight at slimming world.
I weighed in, and was down 3.5 pounds! Woohoo! I was so thrilled!
Its such a great boost when I am down anything. To be down 3.5 pounds, thats incredible!
I’m now down a total of 2 stone 8.5 pounds. For my US readers it is 36.5 pounds.
Only 5.5 pounds to make it to 3 stone! I hope I’ll get there by christmas!
I feel on top of the world right now. I must be doing something right.
Long may this feeling last! I plan on continuing this for the next week and hopefully I will have another good week next week!
So its time to go get weighed in. Another week down. Wonder how I did this week? Hopefully I did good!
Fingers crossed, wish me luck guys!
I was pretty good this week. Im really hoping to be down at least 2 pounds. If I am not I will be really disappointed.
Will let you all know later on!
