Lose weight, live healthier with TOPS

Now that the holidays are over, many are thinking of losing weight.  
There is a weight loss support group in the KMC that meets from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday (except U.S. holidays) at  Pulaski Barracks (near Vogelweh) in Bldg. 2919. 

Take Off Pounds Sensibly, or TOPS, meetings include various presentations by members and guest speakers.  We have fitness activities such as walking and instructions on the use of resistance bands and isometric exercises. Everyone is encouraged to find a plan that works best for them on how lose weight. There is no specific plan or packaged food items to buy. There are lots of ideas and success stories exchanged and plenty of moral support. Men and woman alike are invited to join.

Other features of TOPS:
• A system of competition and recognition to provide additional support

• TOPS’ healthy lifestyle guide, “The Choice Is Mine” booklet, contains details about the exchange system for meal planning, as well as motivational tips and practical advice

• TOPS recognition days

• TOPS news ―TOPS monthly magazine is provided as a benefit of the annual membership fee
