Tops 77

The group discovered that each member has experienced all of these issues at one time or another.

The members have challenged each other to have a loss for the year.

The "Get-R-Done" contest was won by Janice Frye, who had a 4-pound loss for the week. The monthly KOPS winner was Cindy Ryder.

This week is our "No Gain Week" and Maida Law will lead the program.
