TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in the Bethel Free Will Baptist Church, 1300 S. Summer St, El Dorado Springs on Thursday, Aug. 19, for their weekly weigh-in and meeting.

Linda Hall, Leader, called the meeting to order.

Carol led us in singing “I Want To Be At That Meeting”

We said our TOPS and KOPS pledges.

We welcomed two new members today. Jan brought Rachel and Sheryl. Welcome to both of you.

Linda H led us in roll call and walking report. Eighteen members weighed in, we had a Gain of 4.8 and a Loss of 8.0 resulting in a Net loss of 3.2 lbs. Best loser of the week was Constance with a loss of 1.6 lbs. Congratulations Constance. Other great losses were: Chris 3.2 loss, and Jan 1.4.

Marble Game: Pat won the right to draw but did not get the winning one.

Linda Hall reported on the contest. It appears both teams struck out this week.

Don’t forget keeping a food chart is very important.

Margie invited Janet Fox from the University of Missouri Extension Office to speak of us. She is a Nutrition Program Assistant and speaks to groups including school children both grade school and high school. She gives programs to several adult organizations. She talked to us today about “Label Logo” and tips on reading labels. Check the label for salt content, added sugar, fiber content and carbs. Look for less salt, less sugar and less fat. Janet made a salsa using fresh tomatoes, peppers, limes and canned beans. It was a delicious salsa. This was recorded as our tasting dish for this week. Thank you, Margie, for bringing Janet to us. We learn a lot from her.

We noted Constance S and Ray B will both be having birthdays this week.

Next week Laura will have the program and Constance and Jan will have the tasting dish.

With no other business meeting was adjourned with Linda’s quote of the day.

“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says “I’m Possible.” (im possible) Audrey Hepburn

And our motto “IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME”
