Meeting was called to order on Dec. 28 by our Leader Sheryl Ann W. We sang “This Is My Lose Year” to get us ready for the coming New Year. Angie D. had our program today.

Angie led us in exercises. It’s good to get our bodies moving – even for a little while. Every bit helps.

Roll was taken and we had 19 who weighed today. However, being right after Christmas there weren’t many who had lost… We had a net gain of 8 lbs. We can do better next year – which of course is just next week. Our best loser was Linda H. with a loss of 2.4 lbs. Way to go. No double fines for you.

Kadeana M. celebrates a birthday this week but wasn’t here. Kay S. has an anniversary this week – she and Ron will celebrate their 59th.

Margie’s name was drawn for a chance at the Marble Game. No winner today, though.

We were reminded to save and bring Best Choice label bar codes for our chapter. When you clip bring them give them to Lynda B., she sends them in or us. We can earn funds for our chapter that way.

Some inquired about those that lost 10 or more this year in our Lose 10 lb. Challenge. Be patient because we’re going to have to wait until our Chapter Recognition Day to find out how many achieved that and who will get to draw for that $50 reward.

Prayer Request: Jean L. lost her sister-in-law this week – Robbie, Dorothy and family and Linda H.’s sister, Wanda.

New Year’s resolutions were discussed and stories shared. Sounds like we all are looking forward to losing more in 2018.

We invite you to come visit us. We meet at 8:45 and our weigh in is from 7:45-8:30 a.m. in the Church of Christ’s meeting room, 302 E. Hospital Road, in El Dorado Springs. If you would like more information, call Sheryl Ann at 876-5699 or Linda at 876-6467. If we’re not there, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. Hope to see you there.
