“We were established in 1948 to champion weight-loss support and success. TOPS promotes successful, affordable weight management with a philosophy that combines:
- healthy eating
- regular exercise
- wellness information
- awards and recognition
- support from others at weekly chapter meetings
“TOPS Fees [ as of May 2011 ]:”
“TOPS’ annual membership fee is $26 in the US and $30 in Canada, plus nominal chapter fees (on average, $5 per month) collected for local chapter expenses.
“If members’ spouse and children age 7 through 17 join and prefer not to receive their own copy of TOPS News, they pay half price.
“TOPS is comprised of men, women, and children age 7 and older, with about 170,000 members in nearly 10,000 chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
“Visitors are welcome to attend their first TOPS meeting free of charge.
“Members meet weekly in their local chapters, where they receive positive reinforcement and motivation in adhering to their food and exercise plans.
“New members consult with their healthcare professionals to obtain a healthy goal weight and share it with the chapter Weight Recorder.”
