Weight-Loss for Everyone #Sponsored



Weight loss is different for everyone. What works for one doesn’t always work for another. For this reason, there are many diets out there. People try out diets and give up. At times, people come along a diet that works for them, but they may fall into old habits and gain back the weight they lost. There are some factors that help assist with weight loss—no matter which diet people try out.

Getting Cooper started on Hill's Science Diet 10 Week Turnaround! #PerfectWeight #AD

Cooper has started his journey to a healthier cat, you might remember at the beginning of the month I told you about how Cooper would be taking participating in the Hill's Science Diet 10 Week Turnaround campaign. We are just 9 days into his new lifestyle change, and while it hasn't been easy transitioning him off his old food to the Hill's® Science Diet® Perfect Weight food, I know in the end it will all be worth it! 70% of cats and dogs who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks! That is VERY encouraging!


The first couple of days (and nights) were rough getting Cooper transitioned over, but I knew that in order for him to be successful, I couldn't cave in and get up during the night for the midnight feedings like he was used to. After the first few nights of him realizing that there were no more midnight feedings, it was a piece of cake going forward. The best part is that, Cooper quickly accepted the new food, and did not try to pick out his old food, and after the first few days of mixing the food, and getting completely transitioned over, I noticed he wasn't begging as much, meaning-he was getting full and staying full! Yay!

 We used transition chart provided by Hill's. If you are starting your pet on a new food it is very important to mix their old food with their new food so that your pet does not get an upset stomach. 


Hill's also sent me a great resource to track Cooper's 10 Week Turnaround goals and milestones. The first day on the calender suggests that we should take before pictures, because, while we may not be able to notice a change every day, pictures are a great way to record weight loss, and in the end, we should be able to notice a difference in his before & after photos! Even if you aren't taking the 10 Week Turnaround Challenge, I encourage you to take plenty of pictures of your pet, not only are they great memories, but it's great to see how they look before, during, and after they have lost weight! 


I really love the Hill's 10 Week Turnaround Calender, it helps me stay on track and reminds me that I need to chart his weight every week, take photos and notes. If you're interested in downloading the same Hill's 10 Week Turnaround Calender I am using, just click here!

While Cooper hasn't lost any weight (yet) he is still at his 13 pound mark, I have faith that he will start losing weight soon, and be at his perfect weight by the end of his 10 weeks! Even if he loses just a pound or two, I know that he is going to be a healthier cat than before. We are still working on a new routine feeding schedule for him also, so I hope to have him in a better routine by the end of March. Routine and schedule is important for the mental health of Cooper and every pet so it is important that we get one established ASAP! 


Hill’s Nutritional Consultants will be visiting PetSmart and Petco locations across the country to share information about Science Diet Perfect Weight and the 10 Week Turnaround and that they will be giving out calendars in the store! I will keep you updated on dates and times as soon as I know!

Cooper's journey to his perfect weight with Hill's Science Diet 10 Week Turnaround! #PerfectWeight #AD

I am so excited to have my cat be a part of Hill's® Science Diet® Perfect Weight 10 Week Turnaround campaign. 70% of cats and dogs who used Science Diet Perfect Weight lost weight within 10 weeks! How exciting! My cat, Cooper is quite the chunk-he weighs around 13 pounds, and I have been told by his vet that he needs to lose about 2-3 pounds for him to be at a healthy weight. 

Being that Cooper is an indoor cat, he doesn't get a lot of exercise compared to an indoor/outdoor cat. I do, however, try to play with him for at least 10 minutes a day with the laser pointer. 


As we all know, its not healthy for anyone (or any pet) to be overweight, just like humans there are many health concerns when a pet becomes overweight such as heart and respiratory disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and those are just to name a few.  I want my cat to be healthy and happy, so he can be a part of our family for many years to come because a perfect weight adds to quality of life and life expectancy!

I honestly know it is my fault that Cooper is overweight, I did at one point have a self-feeder down for him and kept food in it all the time, and another thing that led him to being overweight was feeding him table scraps. Since this is our first go at getting Cooper at a healthy weight, I am excited to see the outcome and I can't wait to see how much weight he does lose, I do know that there are going to be some challenges, such as him begging for food when the bowl is empty and him waking me up during the night for a snack. 


Hill's Science Diet Perfect Weight formulas are available at your vet or at your local pet specialty store. You can also order Perfect Weight formulas at Pet360 with additional discount on Autoship!
