Possibly 12 members of our chapter may go this year to GA SRD in June at Savannah, GA. We started doing projects to make money for us to go last fall and so far 8 have signed up.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

Are you planning to go to SRD this year? What is your theme?
I want to go if I can get off of work. It's only an hour away from my house this year so I wouldn't have to rent a hotel room or anything. Our theme is TOPS Country Fair.

Yea Sarah you are so right.
We did not have a meeting before Christmas and did not have one before New Years. I feel like my year will not start until I start TOPS but I need to do this for me. I can feel it in my jeans I have gained over the Holdays.

Get on track.

I am an intelligent person.

Evening,

Mighty cold and snowy today. About - 5 and dropping temps. Will continue to snow through out the night. Been snowing all day. Had some appointments this AM. Was glad to get back home again.

Bought a nice rugged bureau for my spare bedroom. It's the room Jocelyn uses when she visits. I have a lot of bins of clothes that she can grow into. I also keep clothes that fit her in a smaller bureau. Really could use the extra storage room. Got it used and it was a steal of a great price. They had cut the price to $ 25.00. Been lining the draws.

Morning team. Got my tree and Christmas put away yesterday. House is back to normal. After a bite of lunch we went to get groceries and Walmart. Grocery store had "out of stock" signs on a lot of things I wanted so bought more at Walmart than I had planned. Had to get 4 rain checks for items. Makes me angry when I go for things and the store is out of it. Pet peeve.

Today is back to work with a storm moving in. Supposed to hit here around noon or so then intensify over night. Tomorrow will be bitter cold with wind. We have a wind chill advisory and winter storm warning.

Better get busy. Stay safe if you are in storm's path.

I had 2 traditional New Year's day items yesterday. Pork and Saurkraut for PA, and
Black-eyed peas for the south. That's one of the items I had to get at Walmart. Who would figure the grocery store would be sold out of black-eyed peas. Must be a lot of southerners in the north. lol

Good morning team and Happy New year. Just a quick stop by as I need to get my tree down and put away today. Big storm coming tomorrow. Need to go to grocery store this afternoon. They are saying 5 to 8 with wind and a high of 14 on Friday, lows in the single digits to below 0.

Yes, being a KOPS and staying in leeway is hard, but worth it.

And a last post for 12/31 - got so excited about 2014 that I forgot to say that I ate and logged, exercised and logged, and drank my water and logged it.

That is it for the December is not over challenge!! I lost a couple of pounds in the month but I did not make my goal of becoming a KOPS. It is disappointing and a kick in the motivation. Well, maybe January.

Does anyone think there can be a psychological block against making KOPS. I've been within 2 1/2 lbs. several times in the last 6 months. Just can't seem to cross the line.

Kopsbaby - Always challenging adjusting to a new system, but I'm sure you'll have it all cased in no time. Enjoy your New Year's Eve. No special plans for us besides keeping warm - major cold snap underway up here in western Canada. At least it's sunny, so pretty to look out at all the snow.

Morning team. I finished the training on the new system at work yesterday. Between customers and supervisor overrides I got it done about 4pm. I have a test to take yet, hope I can remember things.

Tonight, unless the weather gets bad, we are going to our DIL's parent's place then traveling about 40 miles to see some Christmas lights and eat dinner. The bank closes a whole 1/2 hour early today, (woohoo) and DH will take me and pick me up so that we can just go straight there. If the weather gets bad we're just staying home.

They are saying we are going to have one whopper of a storm Thursday into Friday. One model says 5 - 8, another says 6 - 12. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

TTFN

Almost Afternoon Team, I think I have a new favorite cardio machine at the gym. I was planning on using the new rowing machine anyways and since there were only 3 of us today for the Women's Total Fit class we used them and did 3 rounds 300 meters then 20 sit ups and 20 push ups. After class I did another 20 minutes for 3144 meters on my own.

I'm ready for weigh in tonight now lets hope for a loss tonight.

Morning team. Windy and turning cold today. Rain has stopped but by the end of the day it will be in the 20s after starting the day at 37.

Starting today I'm getting back on track. I'm going to eat right and get some kind of exercise.

Not much else. TTFN

Way to go, BLPRETTYGIRL! We're going to finish December strong and head strong into 2014! December 29 is just about over, 2 more days to 2014!
I will probably be curled up in bed to watch the ball drop but I AM going to stay with this December routine. Today I logged my food, water and exercise - YAY me! This is the longest streak that I've been on in a long time and I will make it through the last two days of this month.
We will be traveling next month so things are going to get a little harder but Wi-Fi is everywhere and I'm going to keep up with Sparkpeople and try to get my exercise, at least on the days we aren't driving.
I hope to come home, after a month, to find out that I'm a KOPS. Well, actually I plan to attend some meetings while we're gone; it just seems like it would be sad to make KOPS without my friends.

Evening,

I could use some of that weather up here in Maine. Try 29 degrees. Another snowstorm headed my way. My TOPS meeting is canceled tomorrow night.

Today I went to Church for the first time in 3 weeks. Had storms each Sunday. Went to a Cantata this afternoon at the Church next door. Beautiful music .

Hello everyone.
The weather where I live has been cold (50) and rainy. The damp weather just makes the days colder and wet.

Today was the first day it was sunny. I went to the Flea Market with my Uncle and his wife. The have been visiting from Arizona. Had a wonderful visit.

I haven't been keeping up with the challenge of journaling, exercising, and drinking water but have done everything except journal for 8 or 9 days. Otherwise I did exercise at least 30 minutes all but 1 or 2 days, and did drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday. I was so busy finishing quilt for granddaughter's wedding and then I promised to make embroidery hoop decorations and now have finished everything I needed to do. Now I just need to decide what my next project will be but will not set a dead-line for when it must be finished. I like to work at my pleasure and not feel like it has to be done right now. LOL



Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

Hi team. It's been raining here most of the day. Good thing it is warm enough to rain or we would be buried in snow. Still 38 degrees at 4pm. Supposed to only be in the 20s the rest of the week though. Yuck!

Yesterday after work, I came home and we ate some lunch then went into town. I was in such a mood from working but my mood soon lifted as we went to a jewelry store and I bought my very first diamond ring. Paid more than I had wanted but it is beautiful. There is a blue diamond in the middle and a white one on each side, all princess cut. They put a ring guard on it for this week and I will take it back next weekend to have it sized. I'll have to leave it for a couple of days. Boo! I think it has made up for 24+ years of marriage, and 53 birthdays and Christmases.

Did some shopping at Target, Kohl's and Walmart yesterday too. Didn't buy a whole lot but did get a few things for Christmas gifts for 2014. They are now under the bed. Ate at Cracker Barrel for supper. Always yummy.

We had a joint service at church today as we had a special service. We had a man named Jeff Baker do his "Chalk Art Ministry". He does a sermon based on the Bible and draws a picture with chalk based on the story he's telling. He uses special chalks that "light up" when he's done with a black light. He does beautiful pictures. You can google him under Jeff Baker Chalk Art Ministry. He has about 15 different paintings that he can do. After he's done, he even gives you the painting. He only does this on donations.

Better get off here. Catch y'all tomorrow.

I remember looking for a snow saucer for my kids after Christmas years ago. It wasn't fun but we eventually found it! There is always something, right? Interesting how those little frustrations become the good memories down the road. Loved the smiles on their faces when they were coming down the hill, and when they came in for hot chocolate and cookies.

Well, December 28, can't believe we are this near the end of the year.
I logged my food, exercise, and water - it was a good day - part of
a not so good week but I couldn't resist some treats during the week. Back on track I hope!
3 days until 2014!! 2013 has gone by so fast; I'm planning for more quiet time in 2014; maybe I can slow time down a little if I slow down at times. Hmmmm.......whaddya mean it doesn't work that way?? Well, maybe I have to replan. Can't be slowing down too much I might start acting my age!

Not much going on at my house. Did a little shopping. Looking for a snow tube and saucer for Jocelyn. Hard to find after Christmas and having snow since Thanksgiving. We found them at a hardware store in a neighboring town. Hers had gotten broken. Expecting more snow on Sunday.

Have a great weekend.k

Morning team. Thankfully no irate customers yesterday. Work again today for the 5th Saturday in a row. I had better not have to work next Saturday off or I'm going to say something. Thankfully today is only till noon.

Training on the new system went well yesterday. I think I'll do okay, just have to get used to it.

I really need to curve my eating. It has been out of control with all the festivities and cookies around. Need to move more too.

Have a great day.

December 27 is over for me-I'm toddling off to bed. The day was good though, ate and wrote, exercised and wrote, drank my water and wrote it down! Yeah, December is almost over--but it is not over yet!! 4 days to go until 2014!!

Morning Team, Hope everyone had a great Christmas and day after. Now it's time to get down to business and get back on track before the new year. I challenge everyone that has 1 more weigh in left to end the year lighter than you began the year. If you have no more weigh in's for 2013 then start 2014 with a loss from your last weigh in. (I know it won't count on the official weight books but it will in your book)

Charlotte, congratulations on a 7 lb weight loss in December.....AWESOME!!

I didn't update for our little "December is not over" challenge yesterday.
I did, however, eat and write it, and drink and write it.....but I didn't exercise. What was I thinking? I had plenty of time; 30 minutes isn't that long.....I just didn't.
Back on track today!

So yesterday was December 26, 5 days to go until 2014, counting today.

Let's finish strong!! emoticon

Morning team. Yesterday was not near as busy as I had thought it would be but that doesn't mean it was not without incident. Had an irate customer that has delinquent accounts and of course it's not his fault so he yells at us. He was on the phone and my coworker hung up on him as he was cursing and yelling. We don't have to listen to it. Anyways, I think for now it's been taken care of. We'll see.

We had several snow squalls come through yesterday but then the sun would come out for a short time and melt it on the roads and parking lots. That's good cause I hate trying to walk on the stuff.

We have a third person coming in today so the load should be easier. I'm trying to train for a new system that is due to start mid-January. All of us have to learn it so while several people are off, I'm taking my turn.

That's about it for now. TGIF

A belated Merry Christmas to all in TOPS-land - although it is Christmas for the next 12 days so I'm really not so late with the greeting, right? Short of a miracle, I'm not going to make my Dec, goal loss of 10 lbs, but am down 7 so that's progress. Another year starts in 5 short days - my TOPS monthly loss calendar is already posted on the fridge & am determined that this is the year I'm gonna do it! emoticon

Morning team. Back to work today, just me and another coworker and one loan officer in the office. It's usually busy the day after a holiday so we'll see how the day goes.

Christmas was great. The grands all loved their gifts. I got a gift card to Olive Garden and a Visa gift card. DH and I got one together for Texas Roadhouse. I also got a porcelain doll, I collect them, seasons 1 through 7 of Green Acres, more cookies, a puzzle, and a few other things. A good day spent with family.

After we got home, DH asked if I wanted to watch a movie so we put in Fast and Furious 6. I had gotten it on Monday. Good movie, but I didn't think it was quite as good as the other 5. #7 is suppose to come out in 2015. I wonder how they will write Paul Walker out since he has died. It'll be interesting to see.

Better finish getting ready for work. Have a great day.


Donna

Well all is done and all is well.

Christmas Eve I went to my Church at 4:00, and to the Church next door at 11:00. My driveway and the Church parking lot were skating rinks. So my husband drove me next door. Salt and sand doesn't work well with the melting and freezing temps.

Christmas day was pleasant. Spent some time at my daughter's house for gifts and dinner. Visited with the grandchildren. Later in the day I had my older son and his family for dinner and gifts. Jocelyn had an awesome Christmas. She woke up at her house for Santa. The town did Secret Santa for her. They mess up because her gifts were for a small child and she is a preteen. I knew this, so I made sure there was something for her to get excited about. I let her know that if the day didn't start out so great that it would get better. I knew that her so called God Parents had gone overboard shopping for her. They are friends from Church who meet Jocelyn at a cookout last summer. They have been helping with school and seasonal clothes. Their relatives wanted to get on the deal and went crazy shopping. The relatives have no grandchildren to buy for and they enjoyed doing it. Jocelyn is so blessed and love by all.

My younger son and wife showed up for a visit. My daughter came over with a new mountain bike for Jocelyn. That was the gift that Jocelyn had been waiting for. WOW !! My daughter and I went in together on it. So yes, all is well.

Merry Christmas

kopsbaby, a nice 70 deg here in Fl at 9PM Christmas Evening.

Beautiful sunshine warm day.

I did not manage to make it through the day without overeating.
I'm stuffed & uncomfortable. Did not plan enough. But
maybe that is a good thing. I don't like feeling this way.
Been quite a while since I did this. Won't be doing it any
time soon again!

I hope everyone had a Beautiful Blessed Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve TOPS Friends,

Hope everyone has a great day and watches their portions today. Even though it's a holiday that doesn't give you the go ahead to eat everything in sight. Remember most of us might have weigh in's next week.

Morning team and Merry Christmas Eve. Got my groceries and the last gift card yesterday. I now have everything around the tree. Traffic was murder yesterday and the stores were packed. Parking lots were full. Everyone wants to go into the lanes leading from the doors of the stores. I chose to go one lane over and had no problem with finding a spot, just had to walk a few steps farther. Yay me.

Today the bank closes at 1pm and everyone is bringing some kind of finger food in as we don't get a formal lunch, but we still get paid for the whole day. I got a veggie tray at the store yesterday and dropped it off. I'm sure that will be the healthiest thing there as one coworker is making taco dip and our manager is bring a Cajun crab dip. Don't know what anyone else is bringing. We also get to wear dress jeans to work and any day we get to wear jeans is a good day.

Supposed to have a few snow flakes today. I'm not expecting anything major to whiten the ground for Christmas but they say it may slick the roads so caution is needed if that happens.

TTFN

We had only one KOPS at a meeting this year and she asked everyone to say the pledge with her. She said it would be good support for her and good practice for the rest of us! We didn't stand. emoticon
It was kind of funny but it really seemed to ignite a desire in me to stand up there and say the pledge for real!

Morning TOPS Friends, We have snow and ice on the ground so waiting for word of it we are going to cancel tonight or not. One week from tomorrow is my 1 yr KOPS anniversary and I can't believe I've managed to be in leeway all but 3 times this year but have gotten back in the very next week.

As of now unless my leader gets her's back this week I'll be the only one yet again saying the KOPS Pledge. I thought I was getting better then went to get carts in the cold at work yesterday and now am coughing again.

Morning team. After the record warm temps over the weekend our snow is all gone except for where it was piled up. They are calling for snow showers tomorrow but unless they are pretty heavy showers, no white Christmas. Okay with me.

Yesterday after church, DH wanted to go to Harbor Freight, so we came home, did the church stuff, then drove to the store about 65 miles away. He found a few things then we went to Perkins to eat. Very good. I had the grilled Tilapia from the senior menu. No I'm not a senior yet but I often order from the menu. It had 2 pieces of fish, and I opted for the Herbed brown rice and steamed broccoli. Mmmm, good. DH had the grilled pork chops from the same menu. Also very good.

Today I only work until 11:15 so going to the grocery store. DH and I made some candy cane sleighs for my coworkers and I'll give them out today since they will all be working. You can Google how to make them but they are so easy, only about 5 minutes each to make. You take 2 candy canes, 1 regular size Kit Kat, then 10 miniature chocolate bars made into a pyramid and hot glue them all together using the glue sparingly. Tie it all up with ribbon to hold it all together and whala.

Today is starting off at 50 degrees but will get colder as the day goes. By this evening it will be in the 30s. Back to winter.

TTFN

Welcome to the team TeddyBear. Come January I will be starting my 14th year with TOPS. Most of it as a KOPS, although not all of it consecutively.

Well December is not over but the end is coming, 9 days to go to 2014.
Today I ate and wrote, exercised and wrote, and drank water and wrote! A pretty good day except that I did have to write down that cookie.

My weight is down today; somehow that is never a guarantee about tomorrow's weigh-in though.

Hope every one is ready for fun and family this week emoticon

Welcome TEDYBEAR!!
Congratulations on maintaining your weight loss. I often say that I should be great at maintaining because every time I get a 5 lb weight loss I go into a plateau for months, sometimes it has been years before the motivation is strong enough to make progress again. I've been doing very well lately though and I think the combination of TOPS and SparkPeople is a great help!
This is a very supportive team; I think you will enjoy it!

I just joined TOPS on Thursday, after about a 10 year lapse.
My 1st weight loss will be in January on the 2nd. Looking
forward to it.

I have maintained a 12 pound loss for the year of 2013, so
I'm happy about that.

I have been on SP for a long time, but decided to join a
TOPS group on here.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all my new friends.

Thankfully we are NOT getting ready for an ice storm but, oh boy, have we had the rain. Guess I'd better check the weather maybe the ice is coming!

December 21 eating, exercising, and drinking is done! I think I did well; had a little gravy tonight though - you just have to give yourself a treat once in awhile.

10 days until 2014-----Whee, did this year ever go fast????

11 days to go to 2014 now counting today, December 21. I hope I can stay on track today and through next week!!

Morning team. Well what I thought was going to be a nice, restful weekend has now turned into anything but. A coworker that was supposed to work on Saturday had some surgery on Tuesday and now will not be back to work till Monday so now I have to work. This will make week 4 in a row of working Saturday. The ONLY good thing about it is I'll get 4.25 hours of overtime. I'm bummed.

DH and I went to Texas Roadhouse last night. I got the pulled pork dinner with the free sidekick of ribs and brought most of it home. That will be supper tonight too. Delicious.

Found out last night that my DIL has shingles. She's only 43. Guess you don't have to be older to get them. She has been plagued with rashes lately and went to an allergist to find out that she is allergic to Balsam. She had been using shampoo that had it in it and that's where her rashes started. She had to go through everything to find whatever she had with that ingredient.

Today is ugly Christmas sweater and jeans day at work. I really don't have an "ugly" sweater but the closest I have is one with a Teddy Bear on it. Best thing is we get to wear jeans to work.

TTFN and TGIF

You're so very welcome, BLPrettygirl!

December 19 - logged, exercised, drank 90 ounces so far - a good day!
December is not over; we can do it. 12 more days to 2014!

All my packages were shipped today. I have vowed to send small light weight gifts next year. Shipping is really expensive now. I have to say, though, that the shippers do a great job. They really work hard to get our packages delivered by Christmas.

Morning team. Yesterday work went by quickly, then I went to the Claire's to pick up some magnetic earrings for one of my granddaughters and found out that they were having a buy 2 get 1 free so I ended up buying 3 sets of earrings and 3 necklaces for 3 granddaughters.

Got the packages mailed. Together they cost $48. Ouch!! They should have them by Christmas eve day. After mailing them, I went to the grocery store. Then home and got everything put away. Did my work clothes. Since I'm wearing more clothes for winter, I find it's easier to do my clothes twice a week instead of just once. Makes for a much lighter load.

DH and I are going to Texas Roadhouse for supper tonight. I have a birthday coupon for a free blossom or side kick of ribs that will expire tomorrow. I'm opting for the ribs. Love them.

Better go. TTFN.
