TOPS 0446

Congratulations to Elise, whose hard work has paid off. She has reached her weight goal and has been reinstated as a KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) member.

The TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) Chapter 0446 thinner winner for the week was Pablo with an 8.6-pound loss.

The chapter is grateful for the use of a church facility in which to hold its meetings on a regular basis. That fact is taken for granted unless the privilege is taken away. This week the church was being painted and much effort was exerted to find a temporary location for the weekly meeting. Thankfully, that did occur and an open forum was held. Members shared their struggles with the difficult weight-loss journey, while others gave helpful tips that work for them.


The group meets from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., with weigh-in at 8:45 a.m. at Shiloh United Methodist Church, 19731 Shiloh Church Road, Hagerstown.

For more information, call Mary or Tom at 301-797-2547, or Judy at 301-739-9279.

TOPS 0077

TOPS Chapter 0077 registered losses of 27 3/4 pounds this week.

The best TOPS losers were Donna Blackowitz and Dottie Zimmerman, while the best KOPS losers were Dianne Keely and Darla Hartly.

Zimmerman reached her weight goal and graduated from TOPS to KOPS. Barb Trumpower won the Get-R-Done prize.

The no-no snack this week will be candy.

Janice Frye presented the program on how to choose foods wisely at a buffet or in any social situation. Portion control and compensation at other meals are keys to success, she said.

The group meets Mondays at First Christian Church, 1345 Potomac Ave. in Hagerstown. For more information, contact Donna 301-223-8143 or Patsy at 301-582-2292.
