No one posting the last few days-hope we haven't lost everyone!
We went over the highlighted (ones that TOPS changed) rules at our meeting yesterday. I think the main ones were that we could have elections earlier than July. Probably because the summer months has some members on vacation and not able to vote for officers. Also TOPS calling area captains advocates. We had questions in our chapter about AB days. Didn't see that term mentioned but did say those attending meeting must weigh-in or be marked absent. Was wondering about why the term AB Days seemed to have been dropped. Also never was clear if that was counted as an excused or unexcused absent. Anyone know?

Was wondering if we could have a couple of team challenges here. I seem to need a reason to do the things I know I should do.
My TOPS chapter just started 2 new contests-both based on weight loss only which I can't do being a KOPS. One will be for the entire year & the other is the "dime" contest for 10 weeks. (To be fair, we do have a monthly contest for those who keep a journal.)
I had a longer post here but edited it-need to accept what is and deal with it. Sorry for the previous rant. LOL

Good weigh-in for after a holiday. What makes Christmas so much harder than other holidays is it is "weeks" not one day like Thanksgiving. Keep up the good work.

I apologize if this so wrong location for this information.
I hate to interrupt the conversation but I have a personal win I'd like to share.

My TOPS chapter had a last weigh in on December 16.
First of this year was January 6.

My goal was to turtle or have a loss. I gained .4 pounds. Little excited about it.
Thanks for letting me share.

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

How fun!

Yes, evening eating can be a problem! I try to have a piece of fruit or something low cal to eat! Sometimes I work on my crochet hangers....kind of hard to eat when both your hands are working!!

Went back to square dance last night. We haven't been probably since October. Good exercise.
I don't have trouble getting my daily exercise -my problem is evening eating. Don't know why-but that seems to be my biggest problem area. I need to look at why I'm doing this and make a plan to break the cycle. I think a lot of what we do is following habits. Need to create new evening habits!

BELLACUDDLES - Sounds like you're making plans for a great year ahead. Would do us all well to set or review our goals and make adjustments if necessary. Wishing you a speedy recovery ahead and glad you get to spend time with relatives.

JPISME - Sounds like you had a peaceful time. In this busy time that sounds refreshing. That sounds like a goal for the new year-even if it is only a 10 minute quiet time each day. I remember when our elementary teacher would have a quiet time after lunch. She would leave the lights off in the classroom and read a little each day from a chapter book. Didn't know they were called "chapter books" back then. LOL

Setting my goals in my mind and will get them down on paper later today!

I’m so excited as her daughter, her husband and their two lovely children are coming today to celebrate Christmas! Elise will be one January 12 and Maksim will be four on June 27! I am so happy they’re coming!

I am sure you had fun with your relatives… Sounds very relaxing. Unfortunately my dear daughter’s family was still ill and the little guy threw up so they did not make it here yesterday and we probably won’t see them now till mid January when Elise turns one.

Today we are going to a nearby city for a very small cousin reunion of about 13 and I will have to be mindful of what I select off the menu.

@BellaCuddles sounds like you had an enjoyable and busy weekend.

My weekend has been relaxing and quiet. Went to my parents yesterday evening and didn't do much, we all sat around talking, sharing things from our devices and watching my nephew play video games on the tv. I haven't laid stretched out on a couch for hours like that in a long time. It was actually refreshing.

Today my child and I will pick up my nephew and go to local art supply store (both the young artists got gift cards for holidays and want to spend it). It should be a good afternoon. 24 and 14 years old they finally have something in common and can relate to one another.

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

@OHIOLADY7 getting together with family is more important that what day it happens in my opinion. I'm glad to hear you had everyone together.

@BELLACUDDLES I'm sad to hear the little ones got sick, I hope they feel better soon. As important as family getting together is health is more important. I hope you enjoyed the family you were as ble to visit with.

As for me, I have a hard time remembering to come on SP. I am working on this as it is a wonderful community. I joined TOPS in October and finished year with a loss.

I'm debating going back to school to finish my bachelor's degree. Not to pursue a career but to finish it. Had an internship left but as a single mom I couldn't make it happen. I've got two online schools I'm considering that are good but in my price range. Online schools are getting smart about the final step and m as king it better for working adults.

I'm great at starting projects and not completing them so this is the change I am making in the coming year. Not a resolution but a life change, like getting healthy and fit.

Wishing anyone who reads this a happy day, hugs :0)

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

Good morning and Merry merry Christmas! Our son and his new fiancé flew in from Austin Texas on Monday and spent the night at my daughters house… But unfortunately both of their children came down with the flu, so they did not come up with Joe yesterday for Christmas! I will certainly miss my almost 4-year-old grandson and almost-year-old granddaughter, but we will give them their gifts at some point! I think my daughter expected us to come down there to their house even though they had two sick children! I am having my fusion in January 15 and I cannot be sick for that surgery or I will have to have it postponed to another date! Explaining that to her I think she finally gets it. Of course, we miss them especially at Christmas time but this is out of our hands.

I’m wishing everyone a blessed and merry Christmas and remember what the season is really all about! Hugs to all!

Good morning team. Assume everyone is getting buys with last minute Christmas activities. My husband and I will be spending a quiet Christmas day alone. We were having a Christmas get-together Sunday but had to change to Saturday-one grandson has to work Sunday, he didn't get to join us last year so wanted him here this year. But his sister can't come until Sunday so...we're going to have Christmas Saturday & Sunday! Double the work for us but we'll make it through. But don't know about the eating part. Three holiday meals in one week! But I'm doing really well with my weight this week considering we don't have a weigh-in this week.
Hope everyone is nearing the end of the hard part of preparing for Christmas and getting to the part of settling back and just enjoying the wonder of it. Merry Christmas all.

Sounds like fun it’s so fun to socialize with those that are special to us! We went to mass last night… Fourth Sunday of Advent and had a coupon for one of our favorite restaurants, Bravos and I also bought a gift card from them for $100 and we got a $25 free gift card plus a little bottle of olive oil! Then we went through our town because it’s all lit up just beautifully and drove through our subdivision. Some of the homes are decorated to the nines however we just have a little strand of lights around our front door that Bill puts up! It after we got home I iced my calf and my hip and only woke up once in pain last night so I’m rejoicing in that I at least got a pretty good night sleep! There is no snow on the ground here in Southeast Michigan where we live, and that is fine with me! Enjoy the last couple of days before Christmas!

Sounds like you're on track with Christmas and winding down to the best part-just enjoying the season. Sometimes with all the rush and bustle we don't take time to just enjoy the meaning of Christmas. Makes you long for simpler times. A longtime friend had her yearly small gathering last night where we have pizza & play games. Only 7 of us. Our group gets smaller by the year. We learned a new game - Rummikub. Played with tiles along the line of Rummy. Enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy your weekend.
(PS-Haven't seen many posting. It's a busy time - hope everyone doesn't drift away.)

Yesterday was a very busy day for me, but it all went well and I did NOT overeat! YAY! Today is going to be a relaxing type of day. I'll get the weights lifted, a few gifts wrapped and mass tonight with dinner out with hubby afterwards! Mindful eating for me! Let's all make this a great day!!

Yay fun time… I’m sure everyone had a good time too! This morning I have my CT scan for my fusion on January 15. Hope you and I are meeting friends for lunch and then coming back to our house for cookies and drinks. One last Christmas get together is tonight with the girls from my Parish Office where I work part time. I am going to try very hard to stay within my calorie range with all this eating out

Had a great meeting at TOPS today. Had a white elephant gift exchange & one round of bingo.
Then went to Olive Garden for lunch. We took a few pictures - had a couple of funny ones where we all had on red Rudolph noses. Last meeting of the year. Got to get back to finishing up Christmas chores.

Sounds like a great day ahead!! I am pretty much done with everything as far as getting ready for Christmas. Hubby will vacuum tomorrow as we are meeting some friends for lunch and then coming back here for Christmas cookies and chat. Later in the evening I’m getting together with a few girls from the office for an appetizer and a drink. Have fun at your tops meeting this morning!

Congratulations for the weight loss - especially for this time of year! I got my peanut butter pie recipe from my sister - it's a really simple one with just 4 ingredients besides the crust. I'm not a cook so it had to be simple & easy. My sister is a great cook. My daughter & I always said she had a magic refrigerator. It would look almost empty then she would start putting stuff out and it would end up looking like a buffet. (My refrigerator is usually full & you need a search & recipe mission to find something!). Finally got the tree decorated & cards ready for our TOPS meeting tomorrow. Wanted to have a small gift for each member but still working on that. My daughter is coming this evening to do a Christmas craft and to pick out photos for our yearly calendar. We have photo calendars printed at Staples - need about 4 calendars. It's hard to narrow the photos down. Hope everyone is on schedule with their holiday plans. Have a great day.

Sounds like a fun time and oh my, peanut butter pie! I have a great recipe for that and I love it but have not made it in a couple of years as it’s too addictive!

I am happy to say that my final Wayan for 2019 at my tops meeting last night… Down one and a quarter pounds! There were three of us that were actually runner ups so we each got a dollar! Y’all make it a great day now!

Had a small get together yesterday before oldest grandson flies back to Seattle. Pizza, chips, cookies & peanut butter pie. I was totally surprised to find I only gained a few ounces. Christmas is coming!! Lot's still to do. Last night I did get Christmas cards ready to mail. Plan to put up a tree today then back to working on presents.

Good morning...the tap dancing sounds like fun and walking around looking at Christmas lights...fun also! Maybe next year I can do that. Right now, Jan. 15 cannot come soon enough for my fusion. I can only stand about 7-10 min. before I need to sit down...pain in calf and butt area...pulsating type of pain. Our tree is up and I love it...will keep it up till probably Feb!! I just love the twinkling lights and all the ornaments....some very old ones too...nothing spectacular but ones that leave me nostalgic! I've been doing a lot of icing after I am standing too long, and I slept better last night than I have in a long time!

I'm focusing on the final 2019 weigh in Monday night!!

Deep in the midst of Christmas planning & work as I suppose everyone else is. We just nixed going to one pot luck so one thing off our agenda, yeah! Present giving is going to be somewhat simpler this year. I have 5 family members presents bagged & tagged and waiting to be delivered this afternoon since they live out of town and we won't be seeing them at Christmas. I haven't got our cards sent out yet which I plan to do tonight-boy am I late with this task. Also, don't have a tree up yet-told my husband if we don't do it soon might as well forget it. Going to a local event tonight to watch my tap class members do a shortened version of their show. I wasn't part of the program this year since it's my first year tapping-maybe next year and wasn't that sure of myself. My husband and I went downtown last evening-ate at Wendy's & walked around the courthouse square which is decorated bigtime. A little nippy but made it all the way around the square. Hope everyone else is a little farther along with their Christmas plans and have a great weekend.

We had the discussion yesterday at our meeting about cookies & cookie exchanges. I can't afford (calorie-wise) a cookie exchange. Who can eat just one? Especially when you have an assortment. LOL You stay strong (on the cookie front). :-)

I had fun at our Cmast party last night at the restaurant...I had the prime rib and a baked potato and salad with dressing on the side and ending up taking most of the prime rib home...I had 4 breadsticks though...they were so yummy but did not order dessert! I would have if they had pumpkin cheesecake, which they had last year! Instead they offered cranberry pumpkin cheesecake and that did not appeal to me!
We had a fun game beforehand and our leader had winter/cmas bottles of soap with a cmas charm hanging from it as our table treat!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!!

Good Morning all! Tonight is our Christmas party, and I’m sure our leader has something extra special planned for us since we are not using any of the money towards our dinners. We are asked to bring a $10 gift and I have a Yankee candle wrapped up along with a lottery ticket attached to it. I also like to do a little something for the secretary, treasurer weight recorder and of course our leader so I gave them all a dollar lottery ticket except for the leader I gave her a five dollar one these are all in a Christmas card. We will probably play a game to distribute the gifts and then we will have our final weigh in of the year next Monday!

BELLA: I agree, you did do very well at your luncheon! Congrats..

Again, I agree with you, your Chapter should pay for the Christmas meal you have lots of money in the Treasury..


OHIOLADY7: our TOPS group is planning on a quick weigh-in and then heading out to breakfast on 12/21 for our Christmas celebration. We may have some sort of gift exchange. Havent talked much about it and time is going by very quickly now.

We have 10 members in our group, but only 4 were there this past week. One of them is a snowbird and one fell and hurt her hip a few weeks ago the rest were excused for this particular week.

Good morning… Yes our chapter is quite small and there will only be 11 of us attending our Christmas dinner at a fairly nice restaurant not far from my house, which is good and the weather supposed to be good too so that’s a plus. The chapter this year is not putting any money toward it so we are on our own and I really don’t think that’s right as we have $1200 in our treasury, and I may have mentioned earlier that when we had our SRD meeting they’re only six that went but they got paid half to go without lunch That was $10. We have the option to exchange gifts after $10 value, and I will be doing that as well ;we play a game. It’ll be a nice evening and I know all the ladies and they are all very pleasant. There will be no way in but we will have one last meeting on the 16th before Christmas and then go back in the new year I believe it is January 6 or the eighth. Let’s make it a great day!

IWANTTOSUCCEED - Do you play any games or exchange gifts at your TOPS chapter. How many are in your group? We only have 12 members. Yesterday we voted on which restaurant to go to & Olive Garden won. It isn't my favorite but that's ok. We usually go to Tumbleweed. It should be a nice luncheon. Hope everyone's chapter spends time enjoying time together.

Bellacuddles - Sounds like your Red Hat luncheon went well. There are so many Christmas events to face this month. We have a pot luck with our square dance group on the 15th. The tap class I go to put on shows at 2 retirement homes this week. I didn't dance this year since it is my first year but my husband and I went to the 2nd show. It went really well. They also had a lady sing 2 Christmas songs & a also had a funny skit. One dance member belongs to the local country club so she got us reservations for dinner afterwards. A little expensive but never been to the country club so wan't going to miss that! LOL - All dance members and their spouses were invited. There was about 30 people there.
The food was delicious. We planned our Christmas event at our TOPS meeting
yesterday. We plan to have a brief meeting on the 19th, then play bingo & a white elephant game before going to the Olive Garden for lunch. Then no weigh-in the following week. We don't exchanges gifts but usually give Christmas cards to each other & some members sometimes make small gifts for each member. Should have a good time.

I did pretty well in our Red Hat Christmas lunch yesterday. There were a lot of M&Ms in front of all of our plates and small dishes they ended up eating one and took the rest home. I ordered a turkey dinner and ate some of that but planned on taking a lot of it home and I did. Our leader made a beautiful chocolate cake, and it was quite decadent and I did have a piece of that, eating it slowly.Wishing all of you a wonderful day… Let’s keep our focus!

Enjoy your lunch!

We'll be having our Tops Christmas breakfast on the 21st - we'll weigh-in first and then head over to the restaurant.

Anyone else's group do anything special for the holiday season?

Not sure how I’m going to do tonight at the scale… I did well over Thanksgiving but then the weekend hit; also been sucking on a lot of cough drops am sure they are not calorie free. Still have this mangy cough! I am getting better but it is taking so long this is week two!

Didn't go to my TOPS meeting yesterday.

Had to go with DH to his craft show - he does 3D shadow boxes.

We had a wonderful dinner at our daughter's with her hubby and two sweetcakes, Maksim, 3 1/2, Elise, 11 months old. Mary had a wonderful spread and even a from scratch apple pie, which I took part of my slice home! I'm getting on the st. biking shortly...thinking about the weigh in Mon. night!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! No black Friday shopping for me, but I will get some of my Christmas decors up today and all the fall decors are down.

So, how was everyone's Thanksgiving?

Mine went well - was at my son's house with his family and his wife's Mon & Dad also. She made a very lovely meal - traditional thanksgiving food. I was very happy when they suggested we play some games after dinner.

Did overindulge - but expected to......
