BLOG-o-mania: not a blog but an incredible simulation ... really, just a short word or two

Winter edition ... Happy New Year!!!  Big time for us here at home.  My first grandson was born in the latter part of 2018 and my second is on the way...any day now.  My wife retired from Stony Brook University Hospital after 35 years of dedicated service.

Which brings me to where I am now.  This March marks my 25th year as a leader for Weight Watchers.  As most of you know I had a little event with AFib over the holidays.  The cardiologist said everything was fine, no heart attack or damage...actually, pretty healthy.  So starting this month, I'm going to start backing off my Weight Watchers' schedule and semi-retire.  This decision is no reflection on my health; I'm fine.  I just want to spend more time with my growing family and focus more on my music.  Eventually, I'll only be leading my groups on Sunday & Friday and the Digital Tools Demo.  

REMINDER: Anything else BLOG worthy will be on member2member (facebook) ... join up and check it out.

Please write the day of your meeting on the calendar and commit to attend your meeting every week.  It is part of the winning formula to weight loss success.  My meeting schedule... Receptionists

"LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN"  REMINDER:  At 8:15 AM, on Sunday's, we have a meeting for MEN only.  Men discussing the challenges, ups and downs they deal with on a daily basis.  This group has already lost 100's of pounds and is very successful.  SO ... If you know any male looking for a healthier weight and lifestyle, pass the word

Just a word of thanks and encouragement ... To all who attend meetings every week, I applaud your sense of commitment and motivation. The first and best step of a successful Weight Watcher is the one that brings you through the door and to your meeting. I personally want to thank you for sharing that experience with me.

Digital Tools Demo/Workshops ... need help with Weight Watchers' Digital Tools ... How do I track?  How do I  use the scanner? ... Where's the calculator? ... Where's the recipe builder?  All this and a lot more will discussed at a Digital Tools Workshop.  Schedule below:

Join our facebook group: member2member

Come join our facebook group ... member2member ... https://www.facebook.com/groups/wwinvitosworld/ ... I created this group for members who attend my Weight Watchers meetings.  Years ago I had a Weight Watchers dedicated website; it was called member2member...the idea: a site by members to be shared with other members. Since this group embodies that concept and as a homage to that site I decided to rename the group to: member2member Thanks,

It's a great way to keep in touch. Feel free to share your Weight Watching experiences ... ask questions ... celebrate your success ... post recipes ... talk with a fellow member ... keep track of your friends from your group ... post events ... discuss the meeting, etc.  You know, do the 'facebook thing!' (whatever that is-lol)... just share and have fun.  (Currently over 300 members)
