TOPS Chapter 9319 El Dorado Springs met in The Preferred Family Healthcare building, 700 E Hospital Rd, El Dorado Springs, Mo on Thursday, November 16 2023 for their regular weigh in and meeting.

Warren, our leader, called the meeting to order.

Carol led us in singing “TOPS Is Great”

We said our TOPS & KOPS Pledges

Warren led us in roll call; 18 members weighed in. The chapter had a Gain of 10.8 lbs. and a loss of 4.8 with a net Gain of 6.0 Lbs.

Best loser for the week was Jan with a loss of 3.4! Congratulations Jan

Samantha had the program today. She spoke on tips to prepare for the holidays. She makes a list each week of meals for the coming week. From that list she prepares her shopping list. This helps keep her in her food budget but calorie and healthy eating budget as well. Since she is the mother of 4 active growing children, she has a lot of meals “on the go”. She sometimes prepares “Salad in a bag” to take along for meals in the car. For herself, she has left- overs from the night before or a salad for her lunch when the kids are in school. She has the “two Bite rule,” everyone must take two bites of a dish then if they like it, they can have a serving if they do not like it, they do not have to have anymore. Thank you, Samantha, this plan can work for our members who do not have children too.

Contest: Laura reported on the contest, TOPS have lost to date 59.2 lbs. and KOPS 35.6.

Marble Game: There is $49.00 in the pot. Judy B won the right to draw but did not get the winning one.

Linda Hall asked for volunteers to fill the December Calendar. Pat will do the program on the 21st and Jean will do the program on the 28th.

NEW BUSINESS: Warren wanted everyone to know the month’s best loser pot has grown to $30.00 and we have two more weigh in’s to go.

Warren reminded us we meet on TUESDAY November 21 instead of Thursday the 23rd.

With no other business meeting was adjourned with our motto
