TOPS 0446

Jackie Fields shared her story with the TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) 0446 Chapter.

She shared her frustrations as a person with a lifelong weight problem, the yo-yo experiences of losing 70 pounds and then gaining 80 at different times, and finally, the success of losing 90 pounds and keeping it off for eight years as proof that failure is never final.


She said there was no special diet involved, just a conscious effort to make healthy choices, especially nutrient-dense foods, adding an exercise program and other basics such as increasing water intake and having a plan.

This week, Barinda was the thinner winner.

The next program, the 10 commandments of great nutrition, will be presented by Yvonne.

Meetings are Wednesdays 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.
