TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in the Bethel Free Will Baptist Church, 1300 S. Summer St, El Dorado Springs on Thursday, Nov. 23, for their weekly weigh-in and meeting.

Linda Hall, Leader, called the meeting to order.

We sang “Write It Down”

We said our TOPS and KOPS pledges.

Linda led us in roll call and walking reports. Sixteen members weighed in, we had a Gain of 7.4 lbs. and a Loss of 5.0 resulting in a Net loss of 2.4 lbs. Best loser for the week was Warren with a loss of 2.4, congrats Warren!

Marilyn gave the contest report: Team 1 had 6 points; Team 2 had 9 points. Next week we must keep a food chart for 5 days. Remember if you lose you get an additional point.

Next week there will be double fines.

Marble game: Linda C won the right to draw but did not get the winning one.

Linda H thanked everyone who helped with the float and participated in the parade.

Linda H said we would hold the Christmas Party on Thursday, Dec. 23, and do a gift exchange. Gifts can be new or used for $15 or less. Linda C. made a motion to do this, Marie 2nd. Motion carried.

Robbie made a motion that members bring a healthy low calorie snack Linda C 2nd, motion carried.

Margie had the program today. She did a “Gobble Good” Quiz for us. She had 10 statements and we had to guess if it was a myth or fact. Marilyn got the most right. Margie brought a dish she had prepared called “Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip” as always when Margie prepared a food item it was served beautifully and was delicious.

With no other business meeting was adjourned with Linda’s quote of the week: Remember, silence is sometimes the best answer.

And our Chapter Motto: IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME.
