TOPS a great tool for losing weight

It’s great to see even more weight loss companies opening their doors to relieve our pocketbooks of hard earned money. They go right along with the well advertised and celebrity endorsed money-making corporations already open in Red Deer.

One would expect the North American population to all be at their proper weights by now. Since they aren’t it seems safe to say these expensive companies aren’t doing any more for you now than they have since starting many years ago other than lightening your wallets.

The longest established weight loss support group TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) is a non-profit organization started in 1948 that helps members through accountability and programs dealing with nutrition and emotional eating, along with lasting friendships.

We do not spend billions in advertising and buying celebrity endorsements, and any profit made goes into obesity research. Our success rate has been proven to be just as high as the commercial for profit groups and we celebrate our successes at conventions each year.

We have members who have stayed at their goals for over 50 years as they remained with TOPS in the KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) category.

Our membership fees are $30 per year (spouses and children are half price) which includes nine magazines and local dues are just enough to cover rent and supplies and average $6 to $8 per month.

Check us out at tops.org or 1-800-932-8677.
