Tuesday, May 1st T.O.P.S. #0720 met and was called to order by Sharon with fifteen weighing in with a total loss of 1.75 lbs. Top loser was Rachel.  Sharon, Evelyn, and Ulla all stayed the same. Sharon picked all of us up the Storm Alert Maps from KTTS 94.7 FM, we appreciateher.
Kathleen had the lesson, ”Losing 10% of your Weight.”The example was 22 lbs being 10% of 220 lbs. Just this small loss can lower your blood pressure, lower your risk to develop type 2 diabetes, give you more pep, and help you to be more self-confident. Setting small goals is better.
