  1. Ask for the slider. It should be with the Week One materials, but they may have forgotten because that's what happened to us. The Starter Kit does not have a slider.
  2. No nursing home for me. I am checking into the Holiday Inn! With the average cost for a nursing home per day reaching $188.00, there is a better way when we get old & feeble. I have already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it's $49.23 per night. That leaves $138.77 a day for --- * Breakfast, lunch and dinner in any restaurant I want, or room service. * Laundry, gratuities and special TV movies. * Plus, they provide a swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge, washer, dryer, etc. * Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap. They treat you like a customer, not a patient. * $5 worth of tips a day will have the entire staff scrambling to help you. * There is a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free. The handicap bus will also pick! you up (if you fake a decent limp). To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays. For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there. While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up. * It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today. * And you are not stuck in one place forever, you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city. Want to see Hawaii? They have a Holiday Inn there too. * TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience. * The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they will call the undertaker or an ambulance. If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life. * And no worries about visits from family. They will always be glad to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini-vacation. The grandkids can use the pool. What more can you ask for? So, when I reach the golden age I'll face it with a grin. Just forward all my email! Don't ya feel better now?

  4. A man staggers into an emergency room with a concussion, multiple bruises, two black eyes and a five iron wrapped around his neck. Naturally, the doctor asks him what happened. "Well," the man says, "It's like this; I was playing a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows. We went to look for them, and while I was rooting around, I noticed one of the cows had something white on it's rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it--stuck right in the middle of the cow's butt. That's when I made my big mistake." "What did you do?" the doctor asks. "Well," the man replies, "I lifted the cow's tail and yelled to my wife, Hey, this looks like yours!" "I don't remember much after that!"

  9. You have the information about the differences between the two. Now, let me encourage you to keep attending your meetings for at least a year after you hit LIFETIME. We all need to go through all the seasons and their challenges under some "supervision". Besides, when you are LIFETIME and stay within 2 pounds of goal, you are FREE!!!!
  10. Will you move to my state? We sure need leaders! If you are interested, it is probably best to talk to your leader who will tell her Territory Manager you are interested. I can only speak from my experience. They needed a leader immediately when I was approached by my leader asking if I would like to work for WW. I was sent to Kansas City for a fabulous 3-day training. Then I went right to work. Leaders are required to learn how to do the receptioning, but in my case, I sort of learned the receptioning on the job when I was asked if I wanted to substitute as a receptionist in the summer when they needed help. I'm a school teacher so I do only 1-2 meetings a week during the school year. I pretty much have told them when I can work. They are very accomodating. I suppose your schedule would depend on what meetings they had open...etc. But I sub all over the area in the summer as both leader and receptionist. It's a FABULOUS way to stay at goal...which was one of my strong motivations to join, but I really love to help and encourage other folks. Makes me feel as though I am doing something to change a life for the better!
  11. Twinkie Bites 1 box JIFFY Yellow Cake Mix 1/4 Cup Egg Substitute 1/2 Cup Cold Water 24 Tablespoons Fat Free Cool Whip Butter Flavored non-stick spray Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 24 hole muffin tin with butter flavored non-stick spray. Set aside. Put mix, egg substitute. and cold water in bowl and mix on medium speed with mixer for 4 minutes or 600 strokes with a whisk until it is very airy. Fill each muffin hole 2/3 of the way full (approx. 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon). Bake for 10-12 minutes. Oven times may vary. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes. Once cool, you can either put 1 tablespoon cool whip on top, or pipe it in from the bottom into the center of the cupcake with a pastry bag. Note: You can pick up a pastry bag and tip pretty cheap, and they're re-usable.
