Weight Watchers Weekly Motivational Message

Good Evening Everyone,
 
I must apoligize in sending this email at such a late hour, but for some reason I was blocked out of my Yahoo! account for most of the day.
 
Last week's topic was "Eatting Triggers, Part 1: Trigger Foods". What red-light foods were you able to get rid of last week? Did you clean out your fridge? What about the pantry? Don't delay...get those items out of the house, office, and car!
This week's topic is "Eatting Triggers, Part 2: Trigger Feelings." We will identify the feelings that trigger you to eat and develop ways to cope with those emotions without using food.
 
See you at the meeting!

Weight Watchers Weekly Motivational Message

Good Friday Afternoon Everyone,
 
Last week, we talked about To Write or Not to Write."

 

Are you practicing the Monitor Yourself habit? In what ways? Remember, those who monitor their hunger, have a 75% greater success with weight-loss! What is the question to ask yourself, every 2-4 hours? That's right...AM I REALLY HUNGRY? Throw out the clock! Use your stomach as your guide!

 

 
This Week's Topic is: Eating Triggers Part 1: Trigger Foods

 

This will be part 1 of a three-part series on the triggers that cause us to over eat. We will identify your personal "red-light foods" and discuss strategies to help you manage those triggers.

 

 

Last week, I fielded two complaints -- one from a member and the other from WW Staff. I could have been defensive about the complaints, but instead I decided this was my opportunity to learn and grow (in other words, be positive). When someone complains, it means they care. Think about that...how many times have you received lousy service or had a bad meal? Most of the time we don't complain, we just stop coming back!
 
So, if you could take a few minutes right now and tell me what is on your mind. What do you like about your WW location? What would you change? Do you think we are friendly and attentive or do we treat you like a drone? Be frank and let me know. Change is good and sometime the best ideas are spawned by a complaint!
 
Thanks for sticking with WW and with my team. I know in this tough economic time, many of you could put your money toward other things. Your willingness to improve your health speaks volumes about the ability you have to look down the road and see yourself taking less medication and/or living longer.
 
Have a blessed holiday and see you at the meeting!

Weight Watchers Motivational Message

Good Tuesday Afternoon Everyone,
 
I am so sorry for the delay of my message to you. I have been at a conference for the last 3 days and have not been able to get to a computer!
 
Last week, we spoke about Bumps in the Road

 

What detours or repairs did you make last week that helped you overcome any weight-loss obstacles? Have you tried to change food plans? Did it help? Tell those around you and the WW team what you liked about the other plan and how it helped you lose weight.

 

 

This Week's Topic is: To Write or Not to Write, that is the Question

 

We are going to speak about the benefits of monitoring ourselves and share strategies to practice monitoring ourselves. A study by the Center for Behavioral Medicine in Chicago shows that monitoring what you eat, at least 75% of the time, offers the best chance of weight loss success.

 

See you at the meeting,

De-de

Weight Watchers Weekly Motivational Message

Good Snowy Evening Everyone!
 
Last week we spoke about The Good Health Guidelines. Just to review:

 

1) 2-3 Servings of DAIRY (3 servings if you are under 20, over 50, nursing, or over 250 pounds) The DV needs to be 25% or greater to count as a serving;

2) 5-6 Servings of Fruits and/or Vegetables (a serving is 1/2 cup unless it is leafy than it is 1 cup);

3) Six 8-oz. glasses of water;

4) One multi-vitamin;

5) Protein (multiply your current weight by 45% to get the total number of grams of protein you should get per day);

6) Whole Grains (Oatmeal, Wheat Bread, Brown Rice, etc.);

7) 2 t. of Healthy Oil (Olive, Canola, Safflower, Sunflower or Flaxseed) and

8) Limit sugar, fats, and alcohol.

 

Which of the guidelines are you tackling this week? Tell me more at the meeting!

 

 
Next Week's Topic: Bumps in the Road

 

Next week we will focus on good eating tips for managing obstacles and plateaus that you will face on your road to goal. Recognizing obstacles, bumps, and detours is part of the weight-loss journey. Sometimes, these "bumps" are an opportunity for us to assess what is going on in our food program and make positive changes by shaking up our food or exercise plan.

 

See you at the meeting,

 

De-de
