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? One of the traditions at Golden Goalies is to begin the year with a resolution luncheon. You can probably guess what most of our resolutions center around, but they do extend beyond weight.…

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…

Golden Goalies – celebrating losers

Celebrating with Golden Goalies - Congrats to Lynn, our biggest loser, shown at far right in the photo. And also congrats to Cary, to her right (our left), who did very well at losing too, very close to Lynn’s significant achievement. They were the biggest losers in the last six months. The photo also shows (from left) Carol, Kathy, and Jeanne, who did a marvelous job of hosting our outstanding luncheon.

Bea Loozer At least once a year we have a luncheon to enjoy our community of Golden Goalies and to acknowledge some weight loss successes, especially by the biggest losers. This year we met in April to help those losers celebrate. But we support everyone, so yes to those who earned honorable mention. All losers…
