Thank you I was really surprised when I stepped on the scale this morn and hoped it would stick for the day.. On TOPS scale I have 18 lbs to lose on my scale its 21 and then I'll figure out where to go from there..

You all have a great week, Do something nice for yourself, Cause in the end, You are the only one left.

tybeeanna - Great work on the 2# loss. I found it for you last night.
Not sure what happened. Yesterday morning I was down from the week before. Didn't eat much yesterday but by meeting time I was up. It is amazing how our bodies work. I know it will be gone next week with hopefully a little extra.

Aww Juanice, You will lose it!!! A little to much salt, little to much stress, if only it truly was a matter of calories in & calories expended.. And Thank you.

Oh and my first day @ dollar store went well.. It's a job and I am grateful to have it.. BUT had an interview with Del Monte food Fri & will {fingers crossed & prayers said} have a full time job with benefits come Mon...
The Lumineers were awesome! The opening act was Nathaniel Rateliff which was pretty good. Then came Dr. Dog and I liked some of it. But The Lumineers were super! It was a long concert with 3 groups. It was about 3 1/2 hrs. or more. But super fun.

Glad your Dollar Store went well the first day. How is it now? I hope you get the Del Monte job. Have you heard?

I agree with what Ty wrote. It could be clothing, salt, etc. It is too bad that calories in and calories out doesn't work. It looks great on paper though.

I would have loved that concert! I have not been to one in years!
Our group is getting ready for FRD. Should be fun. I've never been to one so not sure what to expect.

Job is going well, I just solved the food stamp problem. They don't need to cut the program just cut the crap from the acceptable list.. The amount of money spent on pure junk is mind boggling. One person came through with close to 60$ in candy, chips & Gatorade. I really dislike this part of my job!!!! Still haven't heard from Del Monte but this is getting me out of the house

Kismet, I hope you enjoy your FRD. I only went to one and it was fun.. Ours is the 12 of next month.

Dianne, I was really happy happy with the extra clothes on lol..

Well I have decided that Dollar Store is where I'll be, The other would have great benefits But I am 50 & 20-21 years a go a Dr in the ER looked at a back X-ray looked at me & back to the x-ray said "Lady just how old are you ? 29-30 I told him. Why? That looks like the x-ray of a 70 year old persons back.. I had back surgery at 21 Dr said the disk EXPLODED, He'd never seen anything like it.. I know how bad I can hurt and Maybe the job at del Monte would be to much for me.. So you all support the local Dollar General,Job security for me Thanks for being here for all life's ups & downs..

Ugh they set a date for our Holiday dinner and wanted us all to sign up for the food we planned to bring. Rolls and fried chicken were mentioned really?!
We are starting to discuss our holiday dinner (way too early!!!). Are you holding it anyplace special or just your regular meeting place?

They want to have it at our reg. meeting place. They said in the past they have tried going to restaurants but now prefer to keep it low key.

Yes, we want to have it at our regular meeting place but some people are suggesting a restaurant. There are rules for TOPS functions that states you may not hold events anywhere where there is alcohol so if a restaurant has a bar you can't have it there. We are trying to follow the rules and some people just won't listen!

Question

I joined TOPS online, but I need/want meetings.

My two best choices are a morning meeting, 20 miles away, at a time I would have to get up early to go to but I could stay for the whole meeting, or an afternoon meeting a few blocks from home, at a time of day when I would have to leave for work after the first fifteen-twenty minutes of the meeting.

Advice? Suggestions?

I am thinking I would go for the earlier one that allowed you to stay for the entire meeting. The first half of our group is dedicated to weigh-ins, so I am thinking you would not really get any meeting time at all with the afternoon group

Jeanie, This site kept me going way back when, and the friends I have on here understand the true trouble/ struggle with FOOD that I have..

How are you doing?? Have a wonder-filled day...

I would go to the one that is a morning meeting. There is so much you can get out of the meeting that if you aren't there you will miss. It is great to be with people who are in the "same boat" as you are.

Without my group I do not believe that I would have kept this weight off. I have lost and gained so many times over my life. I love my TOPS group. I am thankful each week that I joined.

Jeanie. I am glad you are sticking with it. I don't agree with all the low fat, etc. but it is the friendship and support that I love. I hope that you and your sister will influence your group some. Over the years I have subtly influenced some of my members. They are starting to realize that they eat way too many carbs. So many of them are reporting how much better they feel when cutting down the carbs. It is a slow process.

Thank you

For your help. I'll take the unanimous advice and go to the morning meeting, which is tomorrow a.m. I'm such a night person I told my husband I'll have to sleep in my clothes with a cup of coffee in my hand, but I'm determined.

Question for leaders and weight recorders:
What does your group use for individual weight record books. We have these little books that look like checking account registers but nobody can figure out how to order more of them. Is there somewhere on the website that has them or do you make your own??

Kismet. They don't have those any more. Were they like a bank book? They used to have them and then a year or so ago they had them again. I make them for my group. But you can order the TOPS Tracker which says My Weekly Achievement Log of Weight Loss & Physical Activity. They cost $1.50 each and under Tracking & Journals category in the online TOPS store.
