Weight Watchers Corner BY ALBERTA GAMBLE Here we~ are again with a gooo weight loss of 81 pounds with 41 regular members, making a grand total of 1863. We are nearing 1 ton weight loss by the first Monday night in May. We had one new member Mon- day night and three more of our members received their "Tie Tac" pins for their 16 weeks achievement. At this meeting we had one of the best "sharing programs" we have ever had. Several of our class members shared wth us the report of their physical check-up with theirdoctor. And it was great to hear these good health reports -- such as their cholestrol was so much lower dition better than ever. That is why the weight watchers program is the best because you can eat plenty of good, balanced food and still lose weight and enjoy good health. We want to give you some ex- cerpts of the 92rid Congres- sional records in Washington, September 13, 19"/2. We quote the speaker Hen. Edward I. Koch in the house of Representatives: "Oneofthe most pervasive needs through- out our country is for pro- grams to assure the health and well-being of our people.
