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 deserve acknowledgement, and those who are still trying will eventually have success too.

The food, prepared and served by Country Club staff, was delicious and healthy. Still, each lunch came with an optional chocolate cupcake and those did not go to waste. If I’m not mistaken, though, our biggest losers decided not to partake of the cupcake or other sweets. More power to them! But I’m not feeling too guilty about enjoying some of the sweets that were available, from Hershey kisses to the good old fashioned Bit-o’-Honey. It was a celebration after all.

Also thanks to the generous people who contributed door prizes to make the event even more fun. And to our leader Sharon, who always makes sure things run smoothly.

Join our group for support, encouragement, shared wisdom, some good laughs, and occasionally some healthy and/or yummy food. Weigh-in is between 7:00-7:40 a.m. in the Mirror Room of Sun Lakes Country Club. The meeting starts after weigh-in next door in the Friendship Room. Contact Rita at 895-2559 for more information.
