Judy K. had a 3.2 loss but could not stay for the meeting. Jessica lost 3.8 in a 3-week period. Jan T lost 1 lb. Warren lost 1.4. Robbie lost 3.2. Robbie was the best loser for the week.

Linda had some awards to catch up on. Jessica received her best loser award for the month of March and a 5 lbs. lost certificate.

Robbie Chase, area captain, presented our program today.

Real People are not airbrushed. No one looks like the ads in magazines and real people are not supposed to look like that.

Real People are not perfect.

Real People are real with themselves.

Real People are real with others.

Real people are nice to themselves.

Real people take the first step.

Real people cut and burn (cut 100 calories and burn (exercise) 100 calories a day).

Real people eat real food.

Real people know change takes time.

Real people get moving.

Real people stay moving.

Real people have fun.

Real people live in the real world.

Real people make mistakes and move on.

Real people reach out.

Real people need a pat on the back.

Real people can take off pounds sensibly.

She closed with the thought. Let someone love you just as you are and let that some one be you.
