The September 11th meeting was called to order by Sharon with a weight loss count of 5-3/4 lbs.
Top loser was Sam. Sue won the Hee Haw Contest. The Fall Rally is set for Saturday the 13th of October. Several members are planning to go. We need to bring kitchen items for a basket we will raffle off.
The lesson was called “Treats Are Your Friends,” to maintain an ideal weight you have to be balanced with those treats.
It is the thinking of fat people to want to throw out treats! Rate the treats you eat in two days from 1 to 10, research the time of day in which you choose to eat them, count out serving size and act out of habit and have an afternoon snack instead of having a night time snack. Engage the brain in snacking. Plan your snacks. Write down snacks and times. Build good habits.
The garage sale was a success. We raised enough to send the ladies to the fall rally in October.
