2, 4, 6, 8.....

Happy September :)  School is back in, life is settling down :)  Vacation time is all wrapped up :(
One of my favorite "cheers" from this week's meeting is the following: ".2, .4, .6,.8….why don't we appreciate?"  A perfect cheer for those looking for perfection!  How quickly our minds focus on the negative as it relates to our weight loss.  Why must it be so difficult to recognize and speak/think about the positive?  BECAUSE it is a challenge for many….THIS MEETING IS VITAL!!  It is THE MEETING where we will actually TAKE THE TIME needed to focus on the positive- to recognize the SUCCESS we've experienced on our journey so far.  GET INTO A MEETING…'s time to think POSITIVELY!!
I can's wait to see y'all!!!

"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if
you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got
to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death,
and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and
colorfully, or you're not alive."
