Happy Heart, Warm Feels

May 11, 2017

(Edited. I forgot one of the great parts of my day! My Steps!)


Yesterday was my six year anniversary of the blog! What? Seriously…where does the time go? I’ve lost all track of time over the last several years. The days just seem to fly by.

I had no idea where this blog would take me when I started it just a short six years ago. I so love this little part of my day and I thank you for sharing it with me. Your comments make me happy and constantly remind of what a good decision I made six years ago.

Thank You!!

I love love love my At Work group of Weight Watcher members.

Yesterday I asked the group “What do you need from your Weight Watcher meeting today?”

The answers varied from “motivation” to “accountability” to “food ideas” and each answer lead to some great conversation.

I then asked “What do you like the most about your Weight Watcher meeting?”

One member said that they liked the “fun” of our meeting! You know that made me so happy. 

The meeting room is a safe place to talk about something so private and personal and we can have some very deep discussions at times. It feels good to know that the members allow themselves to have a little fun while they are there too. I truly do love this group of people and feel so lucky to be a part of their journey. They are doing so AWESOME!!!

I left my meeting with a happy heart and warm feels.

I took a late walk after dinner and got my steps in!

    I am so happy that you found the blog Michelle! I’ve never really talked about it in my meetings? I’m not sure why. Baby steps maybe? I still feel so new at being a Leader.

    I do eat some kind of weird things, don’t I? lol

    I follow so many foodies on Instagram, I get a lot of ideas there and I love trying to find low point combinations.

    I’m glad you are enjoying reading the blog. I really do love writing it!
