“It’s my Time,” is the new theme for the Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) in 2009-2010.

TOPS encourages members to work with their doctors and plan the best way to achieve a healthy lifestyle and weight.

The two local TOPS chapters invite anyone with weight-related health problems to come and discover how affordable and fun becoming healthy can be.

One chapter meets at 10 a.m. every Thursday. The second chapter meets at 6:15 p.m. every Tuesday. Both chapters meet in the Paluxy Room at the Citizen’s Center at 209 S.W. Barnard Street.

Healthcare providers are also invited to check out brochures and success stories.

Call (817) 897-4972 for more information about the morning meetings. Call (682) 552-2705 or (254) 898-2042 for more information about the evening meetings. More information is available by e-mailing glenrosetops@yahoo.com or visiting the national Web site at www.tops.org.

TOPS members said the support, friendship and knowledge gained through the organization are invaluable in maintaining a healthier lifestyle. With a broad support system, changes are easier to instill and success rates are higher.
