Happy New Year Wish

My Happy New Year wish for you
Is for your best year yet,
A year where life is peaceful,
And what you want, you get.

A year in which you cherish
The past year’s memories,
And live your life each new day,
Full of bright expectancies.

I wish for you a holiday
With happiness to soar;
And when it’s done, I wish you
Happy New Year, and weight loss galore.

My Special Gift

Posted by: Skip /  Category: Weekly Topic

Many years ago I gave myself a gift. I joined the Weight Watchers family. It became an important part of my life. My gift grew and multiplied after going to work for Weight Watchers. It is a gift that encourages me to look inside myself every week, as well as looking on the outside. It has given me the opportunity to meet and work with some of the finest people, which have become great friends over the years.

I am privileged to watch my family of members transform over time. I see the new pride and self confidence that grows in them as they succeed. Joy seldom comes without disappointment and I am allowed to share in the hard times too. We draw strength from each others journey that we all share every day.

During this season of gift giving I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much you mean to me every day of the year. Each of you has enriched my life and not a day goes by that I do not thank God for my gift that keeps on giving year after year.

An Empty Pickle Jar

Posted by: Skip /  Category: Weekly Topic

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty pickle jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two glasses of chocolate milk from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. Read more…
