It is actually good to hear that your boxy is keeping his weight on. If it was me my goal would be to keep his weight on until spring when you could move the little guy to an outside pen/area. Once a turtle is sitting under natural sun light and surrounded by outdoor bugs things really work out best. For my hatchlings I section off a 3' x 4' portion of my garden with 2"x8" lumber. They get to feast on snails, slugs, worms, grubs, rolly pollies and Lord knows what else they stumble accross, All while basking in natural sunlight. To be honest I feed my hatchlings only once a week or so as there is lots of food for them to eat already. I do have to mention here that I do not use pesticides of any kind in my yard. Once they are bout 3-4" I let them join the adults and free roam the yard at will. Let me know if I can help in any way.
