In the Box Week 44

June 24, 2014 4:08 p.m.

I haven't posted since in so long I have lost count of what week it is in my weight management journey. Since the Friday after Easter I was away taking care of my mother who was very ill (like 4 hospitals and 8 ambulance rides). I was with her for 6-7 weeks. While she is better she has a way to go. I was with her at her worst when finding the correct diagnosis was challenging. If I was to rate my stress level of none being 0 and 10 the most I had ever experienced, I would have ...

In the Box Weeks 42 and 43

April 22, 2014 9:17 a.m.

Hope you all had a nice Easter. Things at the Weaver establishment has been hoppin’ for the last two weeks.

Week 42 I arrived late for the meeting and forgot to weigh in, and I missed week 43 as I was out of town. When I did hit the scales, I had a very nice 4+ pound weight loss. I was surprised as it seems to me I am eating a lot of food.

Week 42, I celebrated my birthday and I want to say thanks to all who sent birthday greetings. I spent the morning as I had planned ...

In the Box Weeks 40 & 41

April 07, 2014 12:28 p.m.

So much to do and so little time. Week 40 at weigh in I lost 2.9 lbs. I think that is because I was able to get out and increase my physical activity. Then Week 41 I gained 2.2….fooey! I will be interested to see what I do next week as on Week 40 I weighed in in the morning and on Week 41 I weighed in the late afternoon. I don’t know about anyone else, but I generally like to weigh in the morning, before breakfast, lights off, in the nude, after a big exhale ...

In the Box Weeks 38 & 39

March 25, 2014 9:28 a.m.

Finally I have a little time to sit down and get caught up with my journal. First for the weight management; Week 38 I lost 1.9 pounds, Week 39 gained 1. Sounds like a yo-yo to me, but when I look back at my journals, frequently I would yo-yo while following the program. I figure I am still ahead of the game.

This coming week I am transitioning to Phase II. Phase II means I can eat what I want applying the lessons I have learned in class. I am going to supplement with HMR products as I still ...

In the Box Weeks 36 & 37

March 10, 2014 9:13 a.m.

I made it back from Baton Rouge last week, and have been in the “getting-back-in-the-grind mode” since, so this is the first opportunity I could collect my thoughts and jot them down. While in LA., I fell off the wagon and "Out Of The Box," but not too terribly bad. At every restaurant, I found items that I have been schooled about in my weight management class and could fit in shakes without problems. I first “caved in” on day three when I saw the pastry at Le Madeline’s Café. I can still taste the French Chicken Pot Pie ...

In the Box Week 34

February 14, 2014 10:40 a.m.

I got to pondering about this week’s posting. I sure have appreciated all the support I have had from my friends and family. I feel very lucky because after all these weeks, if I was a TV show, I would have switched channels a long time ago, so thanks for hanging in there with me. By the way, this week I gained 1.2 pounds. I guess sometimes when you start eating food, which I did this week, the body has to adjust.

As I have lost weight, I have been medically managed by Kim Ohl, APN, and she ...

In the Box Week 33

February 07, 2014 10:58 a.m.

Mother Nature played a dirty trick on us all this week. I’m thinking she should throw these snow fits more than once every 20 years so I would be tougher.

Because she threw her latest fit Wednesday, my weekly meeting was postponed. I was able to make it to weigh in and I gave up another pound. I am now less than 20 pounds from my goal weight. Supposedly a grapefruit is about a pound. My body looks like I have lost a grapefruit from here and one from there. Wouldn’t it be nice to lose body fat ...

In the Box Week 30 & 31

January 29, 2014 4:25 p.m.

Over the last two weeks I have lost two pounds and hope to ever find them again! I am getting very close to my goal weight and remain very optimistic that I can meet the goal.

I haven’t had a problem all these weeks with the required foods, but getting in the higher intensity physical activity has been difficult. When the days are longer and there is light, I can always get outside and bike, walk or jog. Others in my group have mentioned the same problem and we are all looking forward to those longer days.

Today I ...

In the Box Week 28 & 29

January 16, 2014 1:59 p.m.

I had weigh-in this evening and over the last two week lost .6 pounds. With the weather, snow and everything else going on I don’t think I had the intensity in my physical activity that I usually have. I was able to make it to the YMCA only twice.

This past weekend I had my granddaughters. I thought I would offer them a new experience called roller skating as I could kill two birds with one stone; have fun with the kids and get some exercise. And exercise I did get, but it wasn’t exactly what I planned ...

In the Box Week 28

January 02, 2014 9:18 a.m.

Week 28

Happy New Year! So what is your New Year’s resolution? I love to make new resolutions, but somehow mine are always something that goes in one year and out the other.

Weigh-in Wednesday, due to the holiday, was changed to Monday. I am another 1.6 pounds down. Total for this program 61 pounds and since August 2012 a total of 91. I have a plan to continue what I am doing through January and in February transition fruits and vegetables back into my diet. I am also thinking of getting a new tattoo on my right ...
