Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) 007

The Sept. 28 program was an open discussion. Some of the KOPS gave their tips on what works for them, followed by a discussion on diabetes. Several members have diabetes, and needed help with counting carbs and following a diet.


The chapter had a net loss again this week. Eileen Renwick won the monthly KOPS "Get-R-Done" and Patsy Martin won for the weekly TOPS. A new member, Barbara, was welcomed by the group, and made plans for its TOPS Fall Rally in Union Bridge, Md., on Oct. 3.

Today begins our No Gain Week and Sharon Twigg will lead the program. Visitors are welcome. The group meets at First Christian Church, 1345 Potomac Ave. Weigh-in is from 7 to 9:15 a.m., and the meeting is from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. For more information, call Donna at 301-223-8143.
