Golden Goalie Margaret (left) congratulates Toni on reaching her goal.

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…

Golden Goalies – Let’s weigh-in

As we spend weeks, months, years together we see long-term patterns in our weight. Last week a member said she has lost over 40 lbs. since joining many years ago.…

Golden Goalies – to our health

Golden Goalie “losers” are lighter now than before the holidays!

Bea Loozer What can we do to be healthier starting in February of 2016? That might be a better question than, “How can we lose weight this year?” Of course, the two questions are related. We know that lowering our weight will contribute to our overall health and reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer and…

Golden Goalies

Bea Loozer We’re starting a new year. Doesn’t that stimulate you take stock and make some commitments? Or call them resolutions. It’s also a time to acknowledge that even though things could be better, they’re not so bad. We are not so bad. In fact, I feel like focusing on what’s good in my life.…

Golden Goalies: Incentives big and small

New keeper Debbie Whitt with Golden Goalies leader Sharon Flores.

Bea Loozer Golden Goalies sometimes find their own incentives. Maybe someone wants to look great at that upcoming wedding. Fit into a new bathing suit. Get whistled at by a construction worker (sorry for the stereotype). Those incentives and goals help keep us on track. Believe it or not, one of my goals is to…
