What Do All These People Have In Common?


We all meet every Tuesday evening after work...we all are members of the best* Weight Watchers group in the world...we all are about to embark on a huge task: A 5K - and for a lot of us it was our very first one...

Here I am at the half-way point. If I look a tad stressed? It's because it's HOT and HUMID. But we were smart...we took our time, we took 3 breaks to stretch along the way. (Otherwise, one of us would probably have had shin splints, the other - me - would have been hobbled by her back and in bed for a week!)

We might have come in dead last, but we finished. There was no race, no competition at all, and the three of us in the rear were totally not sure we could do it, as we never had before. And while we trained (sorta, kinda, well, not so much), we knew we could have trained better and harder and longer...but...

Last we were. And when we got to the finish line? Look who we found:

Everyone was waiting for us. Not a one left before we got there. They were all cheering us on to the finish line! This is one of the most supportive groups I've ever been a part of. (I love each and every one of you...)

Our biggest fan, our loudest cheerleader, our role model & chief instigator (who just completed her very first Triathalon!) is our beloved leader, Meghan. (She's that lithe young thing kneeling down in front of us, isn't she a doll?)

Weight Watchers. It's not a diet. It's a Lifetime commitment...and the best fun I've ever had.
:)
Thanks ya'll!
(We're talking about doing it again in the fall, when the temperatures are a tad bit cooler ... it was HOT out there, did I mention?)
lololol

* "best" is JMHO, ya'll! I know there are other WW groups out there that are just as terrific! And I'll bet, if you're interested, there's one near you.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
