TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in the Hill Baptist Church, 1300 S. Summer St, El Dorado Springs Thursday, June 9, for their weekly weigh-in and meeting.
Jean L, (standing in for Leader), called the meeting to order.
We sang “Our TOPS”
We said our TOPS and KOPS pledges.
Jean led us in roll call and walking reports. Twenty-Three members weighed in; we had a gain of 7.0. and a loss of 30.2 lbs. resulting in a net loss of 23.2 lbs. Best loser for the week was Robbie with a loss of 14.4 lbs. for two weeks, 7.2 for one week. Congratulations Robbie! Other great losses were: Chris 2.6, LJ 4.4, Rachael 2.4, and Sharron 3.6.
Marilyn had the program today. She talked about Gluseppe Arcimbolodo a 15th century artist who saw people and food in a different way. He painted faces of people covered with vegetables and grains. Marilyn said it is time for us to take a fresh look at food and at weight control. She then led us in a series of exercises and showed us some yoga we can do from a chair.
Contest: Marilyn said several members are doing great on both contests.
Marble game: Sharron won the right to draw but did not get the winning one.
Jean reminded us we will go over by-laws next week. She said Linda has put a lot of work into this and to please come prepared with any questions or suggestions.
We were reminded that elections will be 2nd week in July. Linda has passed out slips for members to indicate what they would be able to do as to which office and or “job” they would be willing to do. This is important because if we do not have people to fill positions and do the necessary jobs, we will not be able to have a chapter. The more you put into your chapter the more you will get from it.
Laura asked for members to sign up for programs for July.
We sang Happy Birthday to Pat.
With no other business meeting was adjourned with Linda’s thought of the week:
“The difference between a mountain and a molehill is your perspective.”
And our Chapter Motto: IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME.
