TOPS Weigh In 4/3/12

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Well, according to the scale at TOPS I lost 3/4 of a pound this week, but according to my home scale I gained a little bit. Oh well, I'll take it.

We had our Installation of Officers meeting last night. It's official now. I am the leader of our TOPS chapter. I'm feeling rather intimidated by the whole prospect. I make a better follower than a leader. I like going to meetings and just staying in the background, except for doing a program occasionally. My fellow TOPS members must see some leadership qualities in me that I don't see. I'm not just saying this to be humble, Ithat's how I really feel. This will be a learning experience.

The pressure is on. No more talking the talk. it's time to walk the walk. I spent the better part of last year gaining back the 30 pounds I had lost, then just coasting along staying about the same. Now I have to lead by example. Maybe this is the kick in the pants I need to get me going again.

    Congrats on being elected Leader and am sure you will do a great job there are so many great ideas on the TOPS site for contest and programs.
    Belong to a chapter of 16 members and many of them are in the elderly age and use the group as a social outing which is good for them and also for younger members as it shows us all we are never to old to lose excess pounds and altho am not that much younger than some of them have learned a lot from these special ladies.
    Am currently the treasurer of our chapter my first time too so learning.
    We changed over to a digital scale at todays weigh in and most of us gained.
    Take care and have a wonderful meeting
    One day at a time
