A weight loss group, take off pounds sensibly or TOPS is looking for a few new members. That’s according to organizer Nicole Doyle. She says the group strongly believes in the message that no gimmicks are needed to lose weight and thinks they can be of benefit to others.
“We have a very good, kind-hearted helpful group,” she said. “When I first walked in you could feel the homey feeling, I felt like I was going home. And I’ve never looked back. If you’ve got a weight issue no matter how big or small that’s where you should be.”
Doyle notes that anonymity has a big role with the group.
If you come to the meeting, you can tell the people in your surroundings, you belong to tops,” she said. “But you never mention well so and so is there. Never, ever because you want to respect your co-group members so that is very important.”
The meetings are Thursdays at the Frank J. Selke Centre. There is a membership fee depending on the level of participation. For more information call Nicole Doyle at 705-335-5467 or 705-367-4918.
