To the Editor,

Summer is here and the eating is not easy. Putting on a few pounds this winter was easy and losing it won’t be. Between the summer barbecues, Rose wines, and adding a few cold beers, Help! So help I got. I joined Weight Watchers in Brattleboro, started to write down what I ate, and listened to everyone’s own story, in a room, in a charming old church. My white haired, wheel-chaired, and oversized lady friends gave me the most inspiration. I listened and I smiled. I found out that our area, Wilmington and West Dover, can be very kind to us foodies.

The Grand Summit Hotel teaches many different classes in physical fitness. Saint Mary’s by the Mountain has Monday and Wednesday exercise classes, 9:30 and 10:30 am, and it is free. Twin Valley Elementary School has Zumba on Wednesdays at 6 pm (that does interfere with my Bingo at 7).

Also, the Yurt behind Folly Food has Ti Chi, stretch, and body building classes on Tuesdays at 4:30 pm, given by Donnamarie Colasurdo. Times may change during the summer months. Whew, I’m tired already. So here I am, faced with my fat dilemma and bending over backward to see a difference on the scale. The journey to better health and looking good. Ten pounds lost and feeling the burn.

Lu Scheier,
