TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

Posted November 8, 2012 at 11:12 am

TOPS Chapter 0319 met in the Church Of Christ meeting room on Thursday, Nov. 1, with 27 members weighing in.

Leader Robbie opened the meeting. Kay led us in singing “Write It Down”. We said our TOPS and KOPS pledges.

Robbie led us in roll call. There were some that had good losses this week. Lynda lost 1.4, Warren and Rhea each lost .4 lbs. Our best loser for the week was Tammy with a loss of 2.4 lbs.

The chapter sang Happy Birthday to Jan T.

Marguerite is celebrating 11 years as a KOPS this month. This means she has stayed within leeway of her goal weight for 11 years, which is quite an accomplishment.

Linda H. presented the monthly awards today.

Those with perfect attendance for October were Sue, Dorothy, Freda, Warren, Nikki, Kay, Melanie, Lois, Rhea, Jan T and Verna. Winner of the free dues was Melanie.

Six members accomplished our Back in Black challenge in October. They were Jan T, Denise, Nancy, Juda, Kay, Felicia, Lois, Dorothy, and Irene.

Irene had a Back in Black month, got close to a new decade, reached her lowest weight, got close to her 5 lb. loss and lost 3.2 lbs. Irene is our best loser for the month but didn’t lose 5 lbs. so didn’t win the money. Our pot is building.
