TOPS success!

It’s almost bedtime and I want to share a bit about my day.  It was pretty good – although for some reason I seemed compelled to eat sweets.  Fortunately we have a little machine that gives just a small handful of Reeses Peanutbutter Pieces and that seems to satisfy the yearning.

Of course since this is Thursday, it was the TOPS scale at front and center.  I weighed 228 pounds – so a drop of 2.5 pounds.  I need to keep that up just so I can catch up on my goals!

We spent the meeting time sharing wisdom, writing them on sheets of paper so that we all have the same wisdom…

  1. Don’t worry about things  you can’t change and change the things you can.
  2. Where is Encouragement?  Everywhere.                                 Who does it affect?Everyone.
  3. Give gratitude each day for all your many blessings.  It will help you balance your day by helping you realize how blessed you are.
  4. You are a very special person.  Full of wisdome, experience and love.  You are #1 to your family!
  5. Don’t give up!  If you make a slip get back on track.
  6. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.  Proverbs.
  7. Do unto others as others do to you.
  8. Stay on track – don’t give up!

There it is.  I do hope it comes in handy as you travel the road to a healthy body weight.


About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
