T.O.P.S. was called to order by Sharon at 3:45 on July 1, 2014. There was a combined weight loss of 25.8 pounds with 21 weighing in. Billy was the highest loser. Our lesson was given by new member, Boni, on “Body Types and Weight Loss.”
Three body types have been identified: the chili pepper, the apple and the pear. A chili pepper body is straight and has a higher metabolism. Weight gain would be in the waist area. The Pear’s weight is in the lower body, hips and thighs, with the waist gains being last. This is “passive fat,” just wants to stay there. The Apple shape carries fat in the middle and has slim legs. This body type finds it easier to lose weight. Boni explained that in any body type losing 2” around the waist decreases chances of diabetics, heart disease and cancer by half.
