     SRD……Slimmer U High School Graduation Celebrates   April 12-13, 2013
at the Sturbridge Host Hotel. Treat yourself to a fun weekend. It is an inspiration to see your fellow TOPS members as they receive awards for a job well done. Have a fund raiser in your chapter to help defray the cost of those attending. Hope to see your chapter dressed in 50’S attire on Friday night.

We will welcome spring this month and, hopefully, the snow is far behind us. This is the time of year when everything becomes alive again and we are given the opportunity in TOPS to do the same. Now is the time to get a fresh start on losing weight.

The first week of March is election of officers.  Whether you are outgoing or incoming I thank you for serving your chapter. Please send in the officers chart to Rosie Smith so she can update her files.

     IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO BE WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN…….This is so true for a member of 256 Brockton who at the age of 93 reached her goal and is now a KOPS.

Thanks to Beverly the leader of 256 for passing this on for our newsletter.

Change can be scary – or exhilarating…the difference lies in your attitude. Not only that, but your attitude makes a major difference in whether you succeed at making a change in your life. Weight loss is a good example. Lots of people have vague hopes and dreams of slimming down and getting in better shape.  But to succeed we have to be willing to make genuine changes in lifestyle. Stay tuned for more info in our April newsletter.

 I have attached an article that I found interesting. As you will see there are benefits of losing weight starting at 8 pounds. As you continue to reach your goal weight every few pounds make a difference for a healthier you.
Lose a Little Part 1    Lose a Little Part 2

Thought for the month:  It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness.
