Golden Goalies – what to expect

Bea Loozer You are very welcome to come visit us at one of our weekly meetings. But, you might ask, “What is a Golden Goalie meeting like?” Here are some things to expect: – Each of us weighs in each week. Irene is our recorder, and she keeps track of our progress. – Roll call.…

Golden Goalies – A spot of tea

Bea Loozer Do you ever have trouble with names? Almost all of us do, which is why I appreciate seeing folks wearing a nametag, even when I already know their names. And when you hear our group referred to as “Golden Oldies,” don’t take it personally or seriously. Some of us are pretty young and…

Golden Goalies – Let’s move!

Bea Loozer Golden Goalies are out there moving—in the pool and the gym, on the bike and the golf course and along the path toward our weight-loss goals. Speaking of goals, kudos to Toni Corrigan, who met her weight-loss goal last month. Besides meeting the goal, she persevered to keep that weight off for six…

Happy new year from the Golden Goalies

Bea Loozer We’re starting a New Year. Doesn’t that stimulate you take stock and make some commitments — also known as resolutions?

Golden Goalies – words for weight loss

Bea Loozer You want to lose weight, right? If someone offers you a peanut butter cup which is going to put you in a weight-loss mode: “I can’t eat peanut butter cups” or “I don’t eat peanut butter cups.” Another option would be to say to yourself, “I choose not to eat peanut butter cups”…

Jeri and Dimple are now Keepers in Golden Goalies!

Bea Loozer I learned a new word this week. Actually it isn’t so much a word as an abbreviation: OG. Its plural form is OGs or Ogees. Since this is the first time I’ve seen it written, I really don’t know how it’s spelled. But this is the way I heard it used: “The Ogees…

Golden Goalies – my posse

Bea Loozer Recently I sent a sympathy card to a Goalie who moved back to Chicago and then lost her mother. She thanked me with the claim, “You Golden Goalies are my posse.” I don’t think she meant we are enforcers. I think she was getting at the friendship that has developed around a common…

Golden Goalies – It works!

Bea Loozer Each week Goalies come to the Country Club Mirror Room to weigh in. Rita and Irene weigh us and track our progress. Sometimes we leave that room smiling — sometimes not so much. But we leave knowing we’re responsible (“shouldn’t have had that salty popcorn yesterday” or “it paid to cut that special…

Bea Loozer Congratulations to Toni, who reached her weight goal recently. Everyone in the Golden Goalies is either working on reaching a goal or working to maintain an achieved goal. So it’s time to celebrate Toni and others, each of whom is working on her own goal. Maybe it’s also time to use the internet…

Golden Goalies – A variety of thoughts

Bea Loozer Has anyone determined the percentage of TV ads that promote pharmaceutical drugs? Maybe because I tend to watch programs that are aimed at mature people and pay very little attention to programs aimed at teeny boppers, it seems to me that at least a third of the ads claim to offer a medicinal…
