New TOPS chapter!

So last night was the open house for the new chapter. Our state coordinator was driving ALL THE WAY across the state to be there for me. I was worried that she would drive all that way and no one would show up and it would all be in vain. However, we had TWELVE people attend and we were granted chapter status!

Not everyone in attendance joined. I think some may join later, after their payday. Anyway, we are a chapter of 8! I just can't tell you how glad I am that it all went well.

There were 3-4 people from my church who were all stressing about me knowing how much they weigh. They kept acting like they each weighed so much more than each other. And of course I won't dare tell what they weighed but what was hillarious was those 3 or 4 people who thought they were absolutely the heaviest, weighed within 4 pounds of each other. LOL They were all about the same weight. It's crazy what our minds can tell us---and how we beat ourselves down.

You know last week I was thrilled because the wii showed that I weigh under 300? Well, I still don't have it on official TOPS scales. I weighed 300.5 pounds last night. But soon! Very soon, it will be officially under 300.

Have a great day all!


  1. I'm so excited about your new group Amy. I know it's just going to be a great success. Too funny about the 4 people all weighing similar weights lol. It's that way at my group too.

  2. That's great that you managed to get people interested in the new Tops chapter!
    Yes people are very sensitive about their weight #'s

  3. Congratulations on being granted a chapter. Sounds like a new and exciting beginning to a new chapter in your life.
