We have had a few months this year were we have had No Gain Months.
Each month we have a contest we run. In October we had a contest were if you lost weight or stayed the same, you could draw a letter to spell the phrase “Cut & Burn”. Ginny was the winner of this contest and Loretta came in second.
Our current contest is if you lost weight or stayed the same, you could draw a letter to spell the word “Gifts”.
On December 11th, at our regular meeting, we exchanged Christmas cards and Gifts.
