When my Mummy hit forty she looked at her life, my human brothers were grown up and she was [and is] blissfully married to Fat fat Daddy. She decided life was for living. She got me [wise move], became a "lady who lunches" and discovered the finer things in life. Good food, good wine [Taittinger], holidays and sitting around on the boat. The result was this.....



...a very fat Mummy. She was so upset by this photo she joined weight watchers the following week. She started getting more exercise, its a wonder I haven't walked my little legs off, and eating healthy food. Now 3 months later she has reached her goal weight and now looks like this...



We think she looks much better.

We are celebrating a year of Air Ruby. I'd like to thank Air Ruby for taking me all over the world and back again.

Good one!

Mistress thinks she is getting fat, but she is just paranoid.

She says there is something about getting to forty that changes your life. Anyway misery and master think you look great.

Well done Simba's Queen Mommy!

My Mommy's college roommate did Weight Watchers with her husband and Weight Watchers flew them to New York to do a story about them!

You can read about them here:http://www.townnews365.com/articles/2008/08/01/ara/health_and_wellness/7530.txt

Maybe Skinny Skinny Mommy and Fat fat Daddy can be stars too!

Your pal (who eats weight management food!),

So long as they understand that dieting is for apes and not for dogs I'm cool with it. I've offered to put my ma ape on wally's weight watchers. i will eat half of her meal, that'll help.
