TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in The Hill Church, 1300 S. Summer St, El Dorado Springs, on Thursday, Dec. 15, for their regular weigh-in and meeting.

Laura Hicks, Leader, called the meeting to order.

Pam led us in singing “Onward TOPS-KOPS”

We said our TOPS & KOPS Pledges

Laura led us in roll call; 19 members weighed in. We had a 19.6 gain and a 17.2 loss resulting in a net gain 2.4 lbs. Constance was the week’s best loser with a loss of 3.4 lbs. Congratulations Constance!

Linda H presented Rachael with a 500 miles walked award.

Jean read a thank you note from EWTN, the Global Catholic Network we donated in Frank Stubock’s memory.

Warren reported on the contest: Linda Hall is in the lead with 156 points, Sue is in 2nd place with 144 and Warren is in 3rd with 143

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

Pat had the program today. She spoke on the facts we know to lose weight:

Writing down what you eat helps you lose weight, simple as that.

Try to keep a food chart with you so you can track in the moment.

Get active.  A daily dose of exercise is very important for your health and helps reinforce good eating decisions.

Pat ended her program with the thought- “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

Thank you, Pat, for a great program.

Next week will be our Christmas Party. If you want to participate, bring a gift to exchange and a healthy food item to share.

With no other business meeting was adjourned with our motto
