TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

Posted May 2, 2013 at 9:59 am

TOPS Chapter MO 0319 El Dorado Springs met in the Church Of Christ meeting room on Thursday, April 25, for the weekly weigh-in and meeting.

Leader Dorothy called the meeting to order. We welcome new member Sarah into our chapter.

Dorothy reported 26 members weighed in and the club had a 5.8 net gain.

Several good losses were reported. Marie lost 1.2. Sue lost 1.2. Juda lost 2.6. Kay lost 2. Jessica lost 5.8 over a two-week period, which made her the best loser for the week.

Dorothy read a letter from our Area Coordinator Randy Paul. He gave us some things to think about. Would you really dig into yesterday’s garbage to make today’s meal? Do you dig into yesterday’s mental garbage to create today’s experiences?

The world and everything in it is a mirror. If you do not like what you see in the reflection of that mirror it will do you no good to attack the mirror, break the mirror or attempt to change the mirror. It is a reflection of you and that is where the change begins.

Juda gave the contest report.

Winners of the current contest were: First place Warren with 214 points. Warren received $6. Second place went to Dorothy with 194 points and she received $3.
