I will be a guest speaker at this year’s Sista Strut Breast Cancer Walk! See you there! – Dr. Valerie Walker
“TV personality Dr. Valerie Walker offers a book of 131 ways to live a healthy and fabulous 131 years. “I will not allow my patients to leave my office with their worries in tact. Nor will I let them sit around and be a spectator in their own healthcare. When they become alarmed over their escalating cholesterol levels (because they are eating too much junk food!) and ask me out of frustration ‘NOW what am I supposed to eat?’ I simply reply, “If it tastes good, spit it out!” She also writes, “When someone does you horribly wrong or something adverse happens to your health, you have two options: you can either get bitter or get better. Choose to get better!” By reading her down-to-earth advice, readers will find comfort and courage in being more honest with themselves, learning to incorporate exercise into their lives, the importance of knowing their family history, drinking water, eating right and taking action to prevent disease.”
Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will be giving away two bicycles (one for a boy, one for a girl) at the Weigh-Inn! Halloween Party this Saturday @ 2pm! See you there!
