TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

Posted January 31, 2013 at 9:28 am

Twenty-five members of TOPS 0319 MO met in the El Dorado Springs Church Of Christ Meeting Room on Thursday, Jan. 24.

Robbie called the meeting to order and Kay led us in singing “Zipping Off Those Pounds”.

Linda Y, our newest member, was our best loser with a loss of 7.0 pounds in her first week. We had a net loss of 1.0 lb. for the week.

Carol had the program today. She first reported on an Internet site from which she gets ongoing ideas on learning mindful eating habits. Dr. Michelle May who presents these programs is offering a free sample of these lessons at her site, which is:

To quote from her email: “A Taste of Am I Hungry? Consists of four free brief but very powerful lessons designed to give you a small sample of what mindful eating is all about, and more important, show you how mindful eating can help you eat what you love and love what you eat!”

Carol then shared one of the Mindful Eating Newsletters she receives entitled “Dining with myself.” She also covered some known and unfamiliar home remedies from A to Z that are good for just about anything that “ails ya.”

Juda reported on the contest. Jessica is in first place with 128 points. Becky is in second place with 103 points. Dorothy is in third place with 96 points.
