Dear Readers,

I’m writing to you from Kentucky after spending the day with my wonderful family. This Christmas was awesome, as usual, because as everyone knows “there’s no place like home for the holidays”. Over the course of the past two days, I’ve been in three different states and spent time with an innumerable amount of cousins, all while attempting to kept my eating in check.

My mom and I are always looking out for each other, reminding one another “Remember- we’ll be eating again in an hour” and “If you want some of Granna’s ...

Week 26 and 27

Yikes! It’s been two weeks jammed with all kinds of fun at the Weaver house.

In December, my husband takes Santa pictures at the Mattoon mall and I am his Elf, aka assistant. I am the poser, printer and the wacky woman who tries to get kids to smile while they are sitting on Santa’s lap. I have had this position for the last 10 years or so and it is a lot of fun to see the kids. Some of them are so excited they run to Santa, while others are excited in ...

Week 15

December 23, 2013 1:56 p.m.

Dear Readers,

Attention: I AM OFFICIALLY ON CHRISTMAS BREAK! And I am so totally thrilled. Today was my last day of school this week, and now it’s time to relax! However, relaxing does not mean I will be skipping out on my trips to the Y. Those must continue throughout the break so I don’t have to be rolled back to school in January.

Since last week, I’ve been to the Y frequently, and one of the best times I had was with my good friend and “personal trainer” Hunter! We happened to show up at the ...

In the Box Week 25

December 16, 2013 10:09 a.m.

Week 25

At weigh-in this week I lost 1.25 lbs for a loss of 57.25 on the HMR program. I believe I had been eating too many servings of the cereal. The cereal is prepared in hot water and the warmth and taste was just too good for the cold weather. I cut back to one or two a day and I am hoping for good results Tuesday when I weigh in again.

For 25 weeks I have had only the HMR products and can truthfully say I have not missed food....until Friday. I got home from ...

Week 14

December 12, 2013 9:40 a.m.

Dear Readers,

It’s Allie here! Can you even believe how close it’s getting to Christmas already? I’m so excited! I just got back from a workout at the Y, so I’m also excited about that! Tonight’s workout was great; I’m starting to feel stronger already.

This past week was “Fitness Week” in P.E.! If you don’t remember what that is, allow me to assist you. It is usually a tortuous week full of humiliating physical assessments performed in front of your classmates. However, this time was different. This time I showed “Fitness ...
