The September 18th meeting was called to order by Sharon with a total weight loss of 11.75 lbs. The high loser was Rachel. Hee Haw winner was Sam. Margaret and Judy stayed the same.
The lesson was give by Evelyn and was on “Food And Your Feelings” out of Real Simple magazine. Your body is no dumby, you crave flavor. Fatty foods make you less sad. We are emotional eaters. Some are stress eaters, sleep deprived, we get comfort from food. Doctors sometime give lollipops, mother’s cookies. We tend to bond with food, holidays, weddings and parties, etc. We have to learn to plan treats.
Cindy our area captain will give the lesson next week. We will walk at the park after the meeting. Audrey received her 11th anniversary KOPS pin, congrats.
