SYCAMORE – Members of Sycamore Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) #IL 0553 have resumed the chapter meetings of their nonprofit weight-loss and maintenance group on Thursdays.
After staying safer at home, members are recommitting to continuing their healthy journeys, and they invite people who’ve struggled with their weight to join them at a meeting.
Weekly TOPS chapter meetings are held on Thursdays, with weigh-in between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. and information meeting from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Sycamore United Methodist Church, 160 Johnson Ave. in Sycamore.
Members learn about nutrition, portion control, meal planning, exercise and more at weekly meetings. Consistent group support, health education and recognition are all key components to successful weight management.
Weekly meetings are the heart of TOPS support. Visitors to a TOPS chapter are welcome to attend their first meeting free. National membership is $33 per year, which includes a monthly magazine. Local chapter dues are $2 per month which covers contest prizes, chapter supplies and more.
