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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
