Better by the Dozen

As a Weight Watcher Leader, I’m constantly suggesting (….ok, nudging….ok, pushing…OK, kicking their butts….) my members get out of their comfort zone. We say magic happens outside of your comfort zone. But what does that mean? We say we’re “Beyond the Scale” but does everyone “get” that? I remember little elf Judy in the movie, […]

Sometimes I’m up for a challenge. Sometimes I am the challenge.

Sometimes I’m up for a challenge. Sometimes I am the challenge. I could take this a lot of ways.   Today after lunch it was simply tripping over NOTHING (or, as I say, that big invisible rock) in the middle of the hallway.   Flat ground seems to be a problem. But in reality, this is what […]

Take the Power away from the Numbers

Why are we so obsessed with numbers? “I want to make $100,000 salary by the time I’m 50 years old.” “Oh my goodness – I’m going to be 30! 40! 50!” etc. “I need to get a 95 on this test.” “I don’t have this much money in my bank account.” “My company didn’t meet […]

Success versus Mastery

You are enough

Who are we in the mirror and who are we to the public?  Are we different people?  Some people who I think own the room when they walk in it feel inside like the room is closing in on them.  Some women who, by even the most classic standards are gorgeous, see themselves as plain. […]

Where is being healthy on your list?

I love to cook and bake and create delicious food!   I rarely have met a recipe I haven’t “doctored”.  I love to put a Marci touch on my food.   I follow many food sites and blogs and thrive when I entertain (now that I have my updated kitchen, that is!)   I love the creative process […]
