Weight Loss, TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)
Anyone wishing to drop a few pounds and get their body back into shape is invited to attend our Wednesday-evening TOPS meetings at the Westbrook Community Center. Sessions run weekly beginning at 5:15 pm.
No quick fixes. No fad diets. No pills or magic potions.
No outrageous monthly fees.
TOPS Club, Inc., is the original, non-profit, weight-loss support and wellness education organization. The program is scientifically proven and has helped millions over the last 60+ years. TOPS promotes successful, affordable weight management with a hands-on, pounds-off® approach that combines:
- healthy eating
- regular physical activity
- wellness information
- awards and recognition
- support from others at weekly chapter meetings
Weekly meetings provide a supportive, educational environment where people are encouraged and not judged.
Each meeting starts with a private Weigh-In, so you can stay accountable to the goals you’ve set for yourself. That’s often followed by Roll Call, which is a chance for members to share challenges, successes, or goals if they wish to.
Many chapters hand out Awards each week or month and participate in the TOPS International Recognition program.
TOPS experts on nutrition, fitness, and motivation share their best tips for taking off pounds sensibly in our brief, interactive Chapter Programs, presented by volunteer Leaders.
The meeting closes with a Thought for the Week or other inspirational activity.
How much does it cost?
The first visit to any meeting is FREE!
Overall, it costs about $30 a year to belong to TOPS, plus local chapter dues of about $5 a month. There’s nothing else to buy, although TOPS does offer its members a wide variety of helpful books and other merchandise for purchase and holds events and retreats that may require a registration fee. None of these are required as part of the weight-loss program, but they strongly recommend The Choice Is Mine, a 232-page lifestyle guide chock full of valuable information that will help you stop the cycle of yo-yo dieting and start living a healthy, satisfying life.
TOPS offers the structure, information, support, and encouragement you need to look and feel great, but it’s up to you to make the commitment. So what would you like to do next?
We hope to see you at our next Wednesday-evening meeting!
