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…

Golden Goalies – where’s my pedow?

Bea Loozer Goalies are finding ways to get more fit. Sometimes it involves becoming more active in the pool or in HOA activities. Still others are looking to technology to help them with the daily challenge. Let’s listen to what I’m hearing from members. * Use a Pedometer. I call mine “Pedow” – however you…

Golden Goalies – Dear Miss Piggy

Jan’s Golden Goalies winnings might buy a cup of coffee.

Jan Bobbett Jan is feeling rich today because she won the contents of the piggy pot. It was huge, by Golden Goalie standards — $2.65 to be precise. Let’s be happy for her. On the other hand, scoring any large booty from the piggy pot is bad for members, and here’s why: When a Goalie…

Golden Goalies – from therapy to change

Jan Bobbett Each week, the Golden Goalies meeting includes a few minutes of what we call “therapy.” Not psychotherapy, not physical therapy — just therapy of the “let’s make it happen” type. Here are some recent examples: Three weeks ago, Audrey introduced Stevia to us. Of course, several of us are regular Stevia users, and…

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.…
