Thursday already and it was weigh in day. I lost 2.8 pounds for a grand total of 32.4. I am getting there. I hope I recognize it when I arrive and am able to live with less poundage.I did some figuring at our meeting and out of the four people in my group there today, we have lost 101 pounds in 57 days. I sure hope we don't throw the earth off its axis.
I am an official card carrying member of the Mattoon YMCA as of 5 pm today. I was given the ...

I just got in from a bike ride and Ray went with me. I think that is my 43rd anniversary present from him and I must say it was the perfect gift and one that I hope he keeps on giving. I calculated his "burned" calories for him and he was amazed how something that was relaxing cancelled his supper calories and as he said, "I borrowed some for my lunch too."
Lots going on this week and I am excited! Small minds require little stimulation. First, on our ride, the overpass hill that "foiled" me last night ...

Did you ever buy something or think you bought something and couldn't find it? I found a bottle of caramel in a shoe box that fit that description. I took it to work and put some in a chocolate shake and it was awesome! I repeated for supper. Now, if I could just find the shoes!
After I got home I went on a bike ride. I have been walking and thought I should change things up. When I got going, I thought, 'hey this is a breeze,' but half-way home I discovered it really was a ...

Back to work on a beautiful Monday. A co-worker, Kristy, is starting the plan today. Instead of going to the cafeteria for lunch we walked for a half an hour outside and it was beautiful. Not so beautiful with all the rain when I got off later in the afternoon, so I was glad I got some physical activity in before the rain.
I bought a measuring wheel and am going to measure the area that I walk in the hospital on the ground floor (basement) tomorrow. My program really doesn't specify how far you walk, it ...

I stayed home today to get things caught up around the house. How is it laundry piles up faster than melting butter on a hot pancake and why did I not take two seconds to pick up that little piece of paper on the carpet instead of running the vacuum over it six times??? I won't even ask about two socks in the washer and only one coming out....what's up with that?
As for our "dining experience" today, both Ray and I had shakes except he had a little lunchmeat. For you other "shaker partakers ...

It was a sad day at the Weaver house on Day 52, the Internet was off more than it was on. Saturday is a day late….better than a dollar short!
I added to my walk today. I did the usual, adding walking the track at the Neoga High School and walking the overpass on 57. Have you ever been to the Las Vegas strip? You stand on one end and while looking at the other you tell yourself, “I can walk that in 10 minutes.” That is because the buildings are so big they look much closer ...

Today was weigh in day and the scales went down another pound. While I would have like a little more, I am very happy.
Last night I stopped on at the YMCA in Mattoon and I am going to become a member Aug 15. If I wait until then, the sign-up fee is being waived. I want to pick up the intensity of my physical exercise and the Y seems to be a good choice. The fee is less than $40 a month and there is plenty of good parking now. I want to have a few sessions ...

At lunch today at work, out of our usual five fun-loving gals lunch group, three of us were eating…well, drinking shakes. One of the other two told us she was getting the products to start on Monday. Of the three who were already using the HMR products, all three of our husbands are also on the program. So far, everyone has consistently lost weight and report just feeling better. Wow. This program is awesome.
I also started noticing different people around the hospital who were looking smaller. After speaking with them, sure enough, they were on the ...

I spent several days camping with my granddaughters. During the time, I was able to stay on the program….have blender, will travel. We did not make fancy meals. The girls had a lot of fresh fruit and some junk food, but not too much. On day 43, Thursday, I weighed in and yea, yea I lost 5.4 more pounds. I did get weighed in the morning instead of the afternoon, and I don’t know if that makes a difference. Total weight lost 28.8 lbs. Tommorrow, day 50 will be another weigh-in.
Spending time with ...

Mary Weaver is on weight loss journey with HMR, a clinically monitored weight management program through Sarah Bush Lincoln, and is sharing her experience with our community. She resides in Neoga with her husband, Ray.
Another day in the books and in the box. My shakes and I had another good day. Today after lunch I was feeling chilly, so I had some chicken soup. It hit the spot, warmed me up and is available to replace a shake if I want. I remain amazed that I have not become tired of the shakes. I have a blender ...
