  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Dec 5, 2022) PW: 226.8 CW: 228.8 SW: 240 Apologies for being a day late - yesterday was a 14 hour workday and everything else fell off the to do list. Not a good week for weight loss but I'm at least a pound lighter today than yesterday so it seems some of this is a temporary blip. A brief…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Nov 28, 2022) PW: 226.8 CW: 226.8 SW: 240 No weight gain right after the Thanksgiving holiday? I'll take it as a win. The family is all past the worst of our 1st time with COVID although I still have this annoying cough from the constant drainage - otherwise, everyone seems to have recovered.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Nov 21, 2022) PW: 228.4 CW: 226.8 SW: 240 After 3 vaccinations and 2 boosters, COVID finally caught up with me this week (looks like I picked it up in Columbus, OH last week after visiting the kids), and then Susan, 2 days later, and then our youngest son (16) the day after that. After…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Nov 14, 2022) PW: 228.4 CW: 228.4 SW: 240 Fun weekend in Columbus, OH as we got to see our two kids up there and a Buckeyes win. Also were able to meet our other daughter in Indianapolis on the return drive back to St. Louis. Lots of celebrating so I'm surprised that I didn't gain wait - I…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Nov 7, 2022) PW: 228.4 CW: 229.1 SW: 240 It's been a heck of a week at work (a lot less steps and exercise) and maybe giving into a few left over trick or treat candy.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Oct 31, 2022) PW: 228.3 CW: 228.4 SW: 240 Just a up a smidge but we celebrated my birthday yesterday with a heavy meal and desert so no surprise. Now if I can just take it easy on the treats tonight.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Oct 25, 2022) PW: 229.3 CW: 228.3 SW: 240 Practicing my inner yo-yo I guess. Down 1 lb and then up 1 lb the next week and back down 1 lb again today.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Oct 17, 2022) PW: 228.3 CW: 229.3 SW: 240 Gahhh! I'm back to where I was on Oct 3rd. Sometimes I feel like I'm on a hamster wheel and not getting anywhere (and apparently not burning enough calories in the process). The temperature has been dropping (a lot!) and I've not been doing as much…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Oct 10, 2022) PW: 229.3 CW: 228.3 SW: 240 No out of town trips (to trip up my eating plans) and I behaved this weekend.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Oct 3, 2022) PW: 232.1 CW: 229.3 SW: 240 Sorry I'm late - I've been working my tail off for a big presentation yesterday (It went really well) and this is the first time I've been back on the personal PC since Saturday. This drop almost makes up for last week's increase (but not quite).
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Sep 26, 2022) PW: 228.9 CW: 232.1 SW: 240 The yo-yo results (from prior weeks) are due to being out of town over the weekend. Susan and I took the other kids up to the Ohio State - Wisconsin football game (to see their other brother & sister) so meals on the road, garbage food at the stadium…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Sep 19, 2022) PW: 229.5 CW: 228.9 SW: 240 Less than one pound each week but still a decline in back to back weeks and after many weeks of small increases, it's nice to see the trend reversing again.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Sep 12, 2022) PW: 229.9 CW: 229.5 SW: 240 Low key weekend - Not too much time to watch football and baseball this weekend as we replaced some bushes and planted some new ones and started to clean out the basement storage section. My wife's parents are struggling to let go of things they…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Sep 5, 2022) PW: 229.8 CW: 229.9 SW: 240 Whew!!! I wasn't sure if I was going to squeak in under the 230 mark but it looks like all of the exercise and restraint paid off. Friday night was drinking and appetizers at a friends house for the Indiana - Illinois football and Cardinals baseball…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Aug 29, 2022) PW: 233.4 CW: 229.8 SW: 240 Finally a weekend when I didn't totally blow it! I've been bouncing around 229 on and off over the last few weeks but the weekend events have tended to upend my weight loss plans. We actually had 4 couples over Saturday night for "Corn hole and…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Aug 22, 2022) PW: 232.5 CW: 233.4 SW: 240 So I try to avoid going out to restaurants on Sunday nights since my weigh in is on Monday morning (first thing when I wake up) and dinner out the night before tends to leave me with 'scale hangover'. Anyway, my parents invited our family and we only…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Aug 8, 2022) PW: 232.1 CW: 232.5 SW: 240 Another weekend out of town - this time moving our oldest son back to The Ohio State University (Sophomore) and celebrating our daughters and her finance's birthdays in Columbus, OH. Eating out all day Saturday and Sunday took it's toll - not to…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Aug 8, 2022) PW: 231.3 CW: 232.1 SW: 240 I'm not worried about today's weight - we had steak and potatoes last night for my son's "going back to college" special dinner request so my salt intake was higher than normal. I'll get back down soon enough.
  • Let’s get to know each other! 1. Tell us a little about yourself? Hi - I'm Jim (53) and live in St. Louis, Missouri with my wife Susan of 26 years and have two adult daughters living in Columbus, OH and Indianapolis, IN with one boy in college (The Ohio State University) and our 6' 1" (baby boy) that's a junio in High…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (Aug 1, 2022) PW: 232.3 CW: 231.3 SW: 240 Bit by bit, as long as the trend is my friend then I'm satisfied.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (July 25, 2022) PW: 234.9 CW: 232.3 SW: 240 I don't believe this is loss as much as more of a reflection that the scale was 'heavy' when we got back last week from vacation. Next week will be more of an indicator if I'm really on the right track.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (July 18, 2022) PW: 228.9 CW: 234.9 SW: 240 Sorry for the delay - we just returned from our trip out to the Southwest and I've had a lot of catching up to do after being gone for 9 days. We had a great time and I accumulated more than 135 K steps but of course after all of those HOT days of…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (July 4, 2022) PW: 231.6 CW: 228.9 SW: 240 The last two weeks were artificially high but the trend has been in the right direction all week so I believe I'll take the win! @lindamtuck2018 and @Megan_smartiepants1970 - Our family leaves on vacation leaves on vacation in 4 days and we'll be out…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (June 20, 2022) PW: 232.4 CW: 231.6 SW: 240 Not really a loss as much as just a reduction over last week's inflated number but I'll take it as we celebrated a friends 50th birthday on Friday ... limo, fancy dinner, cheesy bar #1 and #2 so we'll just say my daily weigh in on Saturday morning…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (June 20, 2022) PW: 229.9 CW: 232.4 SW: 240 Great father's day weekend but too many meals, drinks & deserts out with family. I weighed myself after eating a big meal so this is artificially high and I should see an offset next week.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (June 13, 2022) PW: 230.3 CW: 229.9 SW: 240 Hmmm ... I thought I'd do better this week with increased exercise and watching what I eat but I'll take a drop over the alternative.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (June 6, 2022) PW: 229.1 CW: 230.3 SW: 240 Unlike the major front yard landscaping project last weekend (64 K steps between May 28 - 30), this weekend was filled with 3 graduation parties (our daughter from college and two high schools for kids of close friends) so it was mostly eating and…
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (May 30, 2022) PW: 229.5 CW: 229.1 SW: 240 While I didn't put my best foot forward diet-wise this weekend, I did put a lot of feet forward in terms of steps. We cut back, and pulled out (stumps and root systems) 6 overgrown bushes in our front entrance-way and moved a small tree that wasn't…
  • Yes - My goal is to lose 2 lbs / month which I've been in reverse for some time. I've been trying to do more steps and unless it rains this weekend am making plans to go hiking this weekend with the kids to get in shape for our trip out west in July (Arizona, Utah & Colorado) to go visit more US National Parks.
  • JimBoden3 Weigh-in Day: Monday (May 23, 2022) PW: 229.3 CW: 229.5 SW: 240 Alright - I did it! No, I'm not excited about gaining 0.2 lbs since last week … I'm finally done with the out of town weekends! After 5 weekends in a row (2 soccer tournaments, 1 college graduation and 2 separate moves (our kids coming back home for…
