Wa-Rite Club by Betty Scharf For the Golden Rain News The Wa-Rite luau Aug. 15 may not have had Don Ho, but there were leis, a luau pig and a lot of lovely wahines who brought healthy, delicious foods and hula dancers.
Rosie Andrews won the six-week contest by losing 12-1/2 pounds.
She finished ahead of Judy Chambers, 8-1/2 and Erna Durando and Bernice Idsingda, who tied for third by dropping 6-1/2 pounds.
Alba Powell, Pam Smithson, and Darleen Gardner were honored for not gaining weight for six weeks.
Wa-Rite is a great group of ladies who are learning to lose excessive weight and maintain the loss.
Eating excessively may be an emotional, stressful habit. But rich food can be bad for one’s health.
Overeating can take years to overcome. For many, it’s a matter of understanding what harm is being done to their bodies.
Wa-Rite is a support group. What is discussed at meetings is held in confidence. Members don’t endorse people, organizations or others’ views, actions or products.
Meetings are held at 9 a.m. The yearly fee is $10 and there are penalties for gains.
