Beat a weight loss plateau with Wa-Rite community
BeaQuintanawasWa-Rite’s top loser of the week with a weight loss of 2.5 pounds. She attributes her success to eating her last meal at 3 p.m. and staying away from snacking for the rest of the day.
Two of the club’s other members, Ellen Larsen and Shirlene Bradrick, each reached their master of goal weight status and were awarded certificates of achievement. They shared their personal struggles with weight loss and how they stayed focused with goals.
Every week Wa-Rite provides a platform for women to share their experiences and struggles trying to keep off pounds sensibly or maintain a healthy weight, and to find the encouragement and support from others. The club’s total weight loss the week of Sept. 22 was 20.5 pounds.
President Judy Chambers presented a fun program called “what’s your diet IQ?” where each member was given 12 random questions and answers pertaining to diet and health from a Nutrition Action Healthletter.
From Sept. 29 to Nov. 10 the club will also have a six-week contest called “the funny money fall contest.” Each member will have an opportunity to decorate their own paper pumpkin with stickers that designate a personal weight loss progress and earn “funny money” to purchase donated items at the Dec. 8 auction. Everyone is welcome to join the fun.
The club meets on Fridays in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. Weighins are from 8:15-8:45 a.m. The meetings are from 9-10 a.m. Annual membership fee is $10. Weekly dues are ten cents. Women who are trying to lose those last ten pounds and need encouragement and friendly support are encouraged to join.
