August 13th meeting was called to order by Sharon. Our guest speaker, Beverly, was late so we started on time and got a few things done before hand. Judy and Linda stayed the same. 15 weighed in with 4-3/4 lbs. weight loss.
Beverly was the 2012 Missouri State Tops Queen International Runner Up Queen. She is our area captain and has lost 200 lbs. to goal.
Real People, Real Weight Loss. We all come in different shapes and sizes. Perfection is not possible. Healthy living should be our goal. We wear different masks for work, family, and roles we play. Real People are not nice to themselves. Tell yourself you can/not. You must take the first step. Real Food not only diet food. You did not gain it overnight and you won’t lose it overnight. You do need to move. Find a exercise that you enjoy and stick to it like walking, gardening, shopping. Your change will help others change. Come to the meeting gain or lose, make mistakes, but go on/ move on. Call on T.O.P. friends. Give and accept praise. Keep Off Pounds Sensibly.
