I often think Josie looks fat...but I think it's because her chest is so big. I can feel/see her ribs, but not her hip bones or spine. At the beginning of the year though, she was 79 lbs! I freaked out and got her down to 72lbs. Wyatt went from 103lbs to 92lbs and looks much better.

I don't have any good side pics, but I do have these...
Jo was in her fatter stage here:


Here's what I mean about her huge chest...and I've also never noticed that she was fat on the sides, but that looks like a giant muffin top.




So I guess after my pictures, I will have to cut her food back even more. Her thyroid is normal.
