I know what you mean, Our leader is awesome, & so are the other ladies.. they are all, but the leader & one other more then 20 years older but such a hoot.. I really do enjoy going with them & the accountability so important for me!!
good night have to be at work at 6 sweet dreams,, <3

Yeah!! That is awesome and wow your chapter did great!!

9 of us attended Fall Rally today. It was fun as always. It always rejuvenates me. I love being with all the other TOPS people I have met. I was even asked to speak to another chapter. They said I am inspirational.

Hi Guys,
Our Fall Rally was a couple weeks ago. Our leader is kind of scatterbrained and forgets a lot of things. Sometimes she even deletes e-mails she gets from TOPS. Anyway she mentioned the Fall Rally about a month ahead but then nothing since. If I had known she wasn't going to print out the info I would have done it sooner. As coleader I wish I could get e-mail too so I know what's going on. Anyway by the time I mentioned it everyone had already made other plans. So I went by myself. It would have been more fun with more people from my group but I had fun. They all felt sorry for me because I was the only one there so I made lots of friends. The coordernator even made me stand up cause I was the only group that had only one member show up :-) I actually enjoy Fall Rally more then I do SRD mainly because it's smaller and more personable. I know some have more people then we do. Every time I've went it was between 50 and 60. So a nice size crowd.

Dianne, I think you will do a GREAT job, You give us hope here. And we can't even see your pretty face...
tomswife, I can't even imagine our leader doing something like that.. I'm glad you went..
Jeanie, I just TRIED to read what I wrote lol I meant that 5 of the ladies are at least 20 years older than me & there are 4 of us right at 50. I really was making no sense lol.. punctuation really is important

Well I took a tumble from my losing streak less than 1 lb but oh the agony of defeat then stepped on my scale this morn & was down to 162 my scale always weighs me 3-4 lbs heavier than the tops scale. So hopefully with good clean eating & giving up a few cups of coffee/cream I'll hold on to it

You all have a great day

Down

I finally got back to Tops for my second meeting this last week. I was down 2.8 for the two weeks. Now it looks like I may have to miss next week, but I'm trying to push my schedule enough to get there.

I've joined in time for the Fall Rally (?) so that's exciting. Late November -- I'm just getting acquainted but I can see Tops may become an important part of my long term weight loss.

Fall Rally, Lots of awards, great stories,hopefully good food Inspiration. Getting out of the house all day lol. My only gripe was they called all the men to the stage about 10-12 of them and they were given TOPS ball caps I ask my leader why "JUST FOR BEING MEN?" pretty much she said. That to me was is so unfair, & so degrading as a women to have to work harder to achieve the same loss.. just not right. O.K rant over other than that is was good.

Hi Susan! Wow! I thought more probably attended over your way. We had about 400 at Fall Rally. Sorry none of your group went with you. I do like Fall Rally as you can visit with more people as it is not a huge throng of people. We had one speaker and lots of skits. The skits were not all prepared very well. Did you have a speaker?

For me it is the most important part of maintaining my loss. If I didn't have the weekly weigh-in, it would be easy to overeat and gain some. Then it might snowball. So for me, I will be going until I can't get there by myself. LOL!

Wow! That is totally not right! Why would they only reward the men. I would still be ranting if it was me!

It is worth the small gain. It will come off again in a little while. Your body probably doesn't know what to do. You are going to be so much healthier.

I have my meeting tomorrow tonight, but am getting really nervous about driving there lately.
I don't see all that well in the dark and road construction cement barriers are narrowing the lanes and the deer are going crazy around here!

Hi Ty
I decided to take a couple of weeks off and let the deer settle down. Do you know how that works we have paid for the entire year so do we just pick up where we left off? Wow night shift, I couldn't handle that! DH works night and he does great but he is a night person. I hate it it disrupts a lot of our day to day life, but it does indeed bring in a bigger paycheck

We have to contact the leader, co leader to let them know we wont be there.. So you will be counted excused & not as absent even for an extended time and yes you just pick up where you left off. Have a wonderful week..

Congrulations on the stop smoking. It has been 25 years since I stopped. I remember the agony of that to this day.

Obviously I haven't dropped of the face of the earth. I let family issues interfer with good thinking and staying on any kind of eating plan went out the window. I never missed a TOPS meeting. As weight recorder you can't miss "just because". Up 3 lbs for the month. I really enjoy my meetings and the members.

My chapter hosted the area fun day. Was a lot of work but a great success. We had 120 attend.

Will try to be more faithful to this thread in the future.

That sure does sound judgmental and I did not mean it that way. I meant just because I didn't want to face the scale.

Jeanie, That's not good Our leader add people to a list for everyone, With our address Phone # Birthdays & Anniversary dates. We have 8-12 members but still you should have at the least the leader, co-leader & secretary.

Great job on not smoking despite all the drama. An interview at 10:30 at night? Wow! Hope you get the job if you want it.

Good job on getting back to 160.

We have a weigh-in tomorrow night as we decided we did not want to meet on Halloween. I didn't want the members driving when all the kids are out trick or treating. Plus it is better to be home on Halloween. We meet on Thursday nights but the week of Thanksgiving weigh on Tuesday night. We will do the same the week of Christmas as no one is going to want to weigh on the day after Christmas. LOL!
