Wa-Rite members find their smiles and celebrate
“Help me get back to normal” was the topic of Wa-Rite’s July 6 meeting, and after the stress of living through the pandemic and its challenges, members needed to create their own coping kit. The group discussed navigating a new normal and keeping up self-care, reflected on growth, and shared stories. It was found that two main ingredients to resilience are a positive attitude and taking care of yourself. Members are learning to find their smile and celebrate being in the world again.
Four lovely ladies celebrated success. Geri Seaton reached “Bachelor of Goal Weight,” while Ruth Dupree met her short-term goal. Velma Sarna, Jane Haass and Virginia Olejnik tied for “Biggest Loser,” each with a 3-pound loss Wa-Rite is a support group for women who want to lose 10 pounds or more. Members meet on Fridays in Clubhouse 3, Room 1, from 9-10 a.m. Weighins begin at 7:45 and end at 8:45 a.m. The club is open to LW residents only.
Anyone needing encouragement is encourage to join.
Celebrating their weight-loss successes are Geri Seaton (l-r), Velma Sarna, Jane Haass and Ruth Dupree.
