T.O.P.S. was called to order by Sharon at 3:45 on May 13, 2014. There was a combined weight loss of 16.7 pounds with 17 weighing in. Billy was the highest loser. Vince was given a ribbon and certificate for most miles walked since the first of the year—4400 miles.
Judy provided a lively game for our lesson. She had us list words starting with letters that ultimately spelled out “Enthusiasm.” All the words were related to weight loss or control. Example, Energy, Eat smart; Nutrition, Nuts, Never say diet; TOPS, Take care of yourself; Tea; Help, Hope, Humor; Understand, United, Undertaking; Sleep, Salad, Sensible; Invincible, Ingenious, Intervention; Action, Attendance, Accountability; Smart, Satisfied, Savvy; and Method, Makeover, and Mind matters. The best part was the discussions about some of these words and what they meant personally to our members.
We tied up some details on the information booth we will have at Summer Fest on Saturday, May 24. We will provide materials on healthy eating habits, exercises, and sensible weight loss solutions.
