Golden Goalies – advice

  Bea Loozer I recently happened upon two articles that I hadn’t seen before. One was written by a famous duo: Doctors Oz and Roizen. The other was written by my favorite “Dear Abby”-type advice giver, Carolyn Hax. They were both excellent! They took different approaches, and the topics weren’t exactly the same, but read…

Golden Goalies therapy

Bea Loozer Each Saturday, Golden Goalies have a therapy session, and we all appreciate members who step forward to offer one. “Therapy” is our word for a short session on a topic we’re interested in. Often these sessions relate to healthy eating. But “health” is a broad topic, so it’s not unusual to hear a…

Golden Goalies – now she’s a keeper

  Bea Loozer Our member Judi Brown reached her goal weight in May and is now a keeper. (Applaud) It takes work to become a keeper, as all Goalies would agree. And most would agree it takes some work to maintain that status. After all, it’s easy to put pounds back on whether you’re in…

Golden Goalies – Savoring it all

  Bea Loozer Last month, Carol gave an inspiring “therapy” session on writing resolutions — like those we might come up with each new year — as well as recording our experiences. Below is my adaptation of a handout she used. The handout reminded me of a book I gave my mom 20+ years ago.…

Golden Goalies – enjoy!

Bea Loozer ‘Tis February now, and we’ve survived our first rain shower. In fact, we have enjoyed that rain shower. Let’s focus on enjoyment. As we strive to stay healthy and lose weight or maintain the loss we have achieved, let’s enjoy life. Do you like to dance? Look through the Splash to find a class…

Golden Goalies – The Hungry Dance

  Bea Loozer Let me introduce my dog Zoe. When asked, “Are you hungry?” Zoe makes us laugh as she jumps and jives to do the hungry dance. (Visualize the running back after he runs 60 yards to make a touchdown and shows how happy he is.) Sometimes I think we all do the hungry…

Golden Goalies – “The New Normal“

Debbie has reached her weight-loss goal. Left to right: Jeannie, Debbie, Dimple and Jeri are celebrating.

Bea Loozer Dealing with life — what a challenge it can be! I recently heard about a realistic Sun Laker who uses a mantra that helps her deal with a changing world and a changing self. Since my life is changing, I’m adopting her mantra: “It’s the new normal.” What might be the new normal?…

Golden Goalies – who knew?

Bea Loozer We’ve had many good “therapy” sessions this quarter. Let me mention the last two. Adam, from MedMetrics (near Amalfi’s), visited us and gave us “the rest of the story” about some health headlines that we’ve seen recently. It is so helpful to be able to rely on a pharmacist who knows his stuff…

Golden Goalies – Our time with GG

Bea Loozer Golden Goalies is growing – as a group. We have quite a few new members, and that’s a good thing. Growing is good because it acknowledges that we’re on the right track, and helping those who want to improve their health by losing weight is very important to all of us in Golden…
