Local TOPS chapter members continue to drop weight

TOPS Club Inc. ("Take Off Pounds Sensibly") is the original, nonprofit, weight-loss support and wellness education organization which has about 100,000 members throughout the United States and Canada. TOPS provides a caring, friendly environment for members with a philosophy that combines accountability (weigh-ins) and support from others at weekly chapter meetings, providing healthy eating, portion control, regular exercise, and wellness information.

The Cathlamet (TOPS) chapter is a small group (15 members), which was started in 2017 and is associated with the international TOPS organization. They meet every Thursday evening from 6:00-7:00 in the Community Center (currently waiting for the "Stay at Home" guidance to be removed). The group supports each other in their journey to reaching their preferred weights.

Local TOPS members had another successful year in 2019, averaging over 11 pounds weight lost per member. This was a 40 percent improvement in average annual loss compared to the award-winning eight pounds loss per member in 2018. As in 2018, several members of the local group were weight loss winners in 2019, according to national guidelines. Six members lost between 19 and 36 pounds last year. One new member has lost nearly 30 pounds just in 2020.

Those interested in losing those holiday/sequestering pounds, may call 601-831-0360. Their meetings, when they resume, will be announced in The Wahkiakum County Eagle.
