Pandemic learning

In my Facebook memories are beautiful moments of travel (damn – I was in Hawaii and Connecticut and Virginia), of studio workshops and member comments, of company at my house, of my kids here of dogs playing.    During this pandemic it’s easy to look back and think, life’s all broken now.  Will I ever […]

Say yes to you

We walk in to WW because we want something. We might want a new clothing size, a lower cholesterol, fewer pains in our joints, to be healthier, or even to be an example to our kids. BBQ, candy, cookies, bread – all are on the plan with WW. There is no cheating since nothing is […]

Mindset and Balance: my 2019 words of the year

Over Christmas dinner, my extended family were talking about this commercial or that one and I looked at my husband and realized… hmmm.  Haven’t seen ANY of those! I’m somewhat thrilled that the times now that I watch TV, it’s usually recorded or on a streaming service.  I rarely see commercials. But I can guarantee […]

Anxiety is where you least expect it

Normally when any of you see my posts, you could count on some positivity.  You’ll see humor – especially puns – and gratitude, and optimism, and encouragement.  You might see cursing during football season and you might see the very occasional political post. So this is different.  I had a car accident on Thursday.  I’ve […]

We are Better Together

Marci, was it everything you hoped for? (This was my friend’s question yesterday.) Well….. I answered her yesterday, but the question has been floating in my head since. The last week’s event was purely social – not a Weight Watchers-organized or paid-for event. But Weight Watchers brought us together AND to this place of love […]
