So, last week I decided what I really needed was motivation and support. I thought about Weight Watchers, but it's just too pricey for those meetings. Then I remembered something my aunt had done several years ago. It was a group called TOPS- Take Off Pounds Sensibly. According to their website: "Programs vary, but all serve to provide members with positive reinforcement and motivation in adhering to their food and exercise plans."
Membership dues are $26.00 annually. Within my budget! They meet weekly and encourage each other. And there are contests for motivation. I called the area captain right away after getting her number from the website. She called me back and told me about a few of the area groups.
This morning I visited one of the groups in my area. There were 5 ladies there and I was definitely younger than any of them by at least 10 years. But, they were SO sweet. Their meeting started in prayer. Knowing that I was planning to visit, 3 of the ladies had written out cards and gave them to me. I placed my membership in their group right away. I felt so comfortable there.
And I have a lot of motivation!
Here I go!
