TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)

Posted June 13, 2013 at 9:22 am

Twenty members of TOPS Chapter MO 0319 El Dorado Springs met in the Church Of Christ meeting room on Thursday, June 6, for the weekly weigh in and meeting.

Note: We would like to start an evening chapter for those who are unable to attend daytime meetings. Please call Robbie Chase at 417/876-0233 to discuss starting an evening chapter.

Leader Dorothy called the meeting to order. Carol led us in singing “The Scale Song.”

Attendance is down due to vacations and members traveling. Our members have learned a new lifestyle and hopefully will return from vacation with a loss.

There were some members with good losses today. Lynda was our best loser with a loss of 5.4 lbs. Other good losses were Felicia with a 2.4 loss, Rosie 1.2, Tammy 1.2 and Melanie 1.6.

Carol presented awards for the month of May. The chapter had a 6.4 net loss for the month of May. Linda III was the month’s best loser with a loss of 5.4 lbs.

The chapter is organizing a “Chapter Walk” on Thursday, June 27. We will walk with Area Captain Robbie Chase and miles walked will be awarded to her to help her win an Area Captain contest. It is fun to walk with a group and makes the time and miles walked go much faster.

There are several members who are ill and our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

TOPS welcomes anyone who is interested in a healthier life style and wants to have fun and make new friends to join us at anytime. We meet each Thursday morning in the Church of Christ Meeting Room, 302 E. Hospital Rd., El Dorado Springs. Our weigh in is from 7:45-8:30. The meeting is from 8:45 to 10 a.m. We welcome both men (we have five men in the club now) and women from all age groups. Our members range in age from 29 to 89.
