Dixon will encourage you to ‘bite an elephant’


The annual anniversary event for Healthy Woman is a time when women grab their girlfriends for vendor shopping at the expo, a luncheon and an interesting speaker.

Elizabeth Dixon, motivational speaker, will encourage ladies to make dreams become reality at the Healthy Woman anniversary event next Saturday, Nov. 2.

“Have you ever heard the quote: ‘How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.’ So often I see friends, coworkers and employees share a dream that they have and for one reason or another they never take steps to pursue it,” Dixon stated.

“Our culture needs these dreams to be realized. Action to be taken. Solutions to be created. That is where bite an elephant comes in.”

Dixon leads the wellness program at the Chick-fil-A corporate office in Atlanta, Ga., and founded the Bite An Elephant company to inspire goal-setting, leadership and perseverance.

Since the time Dixon created the Chick-fil-A wellness program in 2004, the staff has grown to 10. The Wellness Center has exceeded industry standards with over 50 percent participation. Chick-fil-A has been recognized annually as the Most Fit Company in Atlanta.

The seventh anniversary celebration for Healthy Woman is at Granbury High School. Activities begin at 10 a.m. and run through 2 p.m. with a luncheon served at noon.

A free shopping and vendor expo, with more than 60 vendors, is set from 10 a.m. until noon at the high school.

The luncheon includes entertainment from noon to 1 p.m.

The keynote address by Dixon is from 1-2 p.m.

Door prizes, including the latest iPad and Kindle, will be given away at all three events. Winners do not have to be present.

The cost for the luncheon and the speaker is $15. Tickets to attend only the keynote address are $10. The vendor expo is free.

Tickets can be purchased at the Senior Circle office at 1321 Water’s Edge Drive, or at the Lake Granbury Medical Center administration office. For information, call 817-579-2955, or email [email protected]

The Healthy Woman program is sponsored by LGMC. The program was created to provide up-to-date health care information for the entire family.

The program’s mission is to empower women with the knowledge to make informed health care decisions for themselves and their loved ones.
