TOPS Chapter 446

TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Chapter 446 again had some lower numbers at the scales for its April 2 meeting.

The program leader, Mary, is helping the group see food in a different way.

The members talked about making eating pleasurable. We were told we should sit down and take time to enjoy our food and know what we are eating.

Also, the group talked about "how big is big?" - portion sizes have increased over the years, making our body sizes larger also.

Several members of the group are planning to be at the State Recognition Days, April 3 to 5 in Ocean City, Md.

At Wednesday's meeting, the group plans to talk about the workshops members hope to attend and continue on with the intuitive eating program.
