TOPS group provides weight-loss support [Video]

TOPS, or Take Off Pounds Sensibly, is a nonprofit weight-loss program that was chartered in Columbia in 1973. The TOPS group supports people who value maintaining a healthy lifestyle, based on the amount of activity they are willing to do and not the amount of money they give. On a weekly basis, members gather to share experiences and healthful recipes. Each meeting begins with songs about being physically and mentally fit.

Kristi Perry, TOPS Chapter leader, talks about how TOPS is different from other weight-loss programs she has tried. Area captain Janet Trainer says the program’s group support has helped her maintain her weight for years, and Donna Karns, TOPS Eastern Missouri Coordinator, explains how she has learned that a positive attitude is an important factor in weight loss.
