TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) meets

Posted March 14, 2013 at 9:57 am

Thirty members of TOPS 0319 MO met at the El Dorado Springs Church Of Christ Meeting Room on Thursday, March 7.

Robbie, our leader, called the meeting to order and Kay led us in singing “Mark Another Loss For Me.” We said our pledges and had roll call.

Since our last meeting was Feb. 14, we had a lot of catching up to do. Some of us did well not having to face the scale for two weeks and some of us found we really need to face the weigh-in each week. We are all so glad to get together again and get back to work on improving our health and well-being.

Some of the losses reported were Lynda lost 2.8, Tammy lost 2.8, Verna lost 1.6, Sue lost 1.6, Judy K lost 1.2 and Dorothy lost 1.2 as well. Felicia and Linda Y (3) each lost 1 lb. But our best loser of the week was our leader, Robbie, with a 4 LB loss. Congratulations Robbie!

TOPS members are in full swing getting ready for our semi-annual Baked Potato Luncheon. This will be at the Lions Club Thursday, March 14. Time will be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Price is $5 per person.
