Congratulations to Martha Bobb, who lost 40 pounds and met her goal as a TOPS (Taking off pounds sensibly) member! Martha joined TOPS in 1985 and had many difficulties as she struggled to lose weight. One day, as she met the scales, her weight was at an all-time high. Shocked at what she saw, she knew it was time to take charge of her life and get busy doing what needed to be done.
Wanting a healthier path, Martha listened to the TOPS recommendations about food choices, started to exercise, and with the help of her chapter, she took charge of her health. Her doctor helped her find the best weight for her age and size. With a new mindset, she was determined to exercise twice a week and turn to her TOPS friends for support when needed. The weight dropped off slowly, but steadily. Her neighbor, who is also a TOPS member, was very helpful when she became discouraged. Working together paid off.
Martha celebrated her success at her chapter, TOPS 1229 Sand Lake. In May, she will be honored at state recognition days, when she receives KOPS (keep off pounds sensibly) status.
Anyone interested in visiting TOPS can call Martha at 696-1039. They meet on Tuesday mornings at 9:15 a.m. at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Sand Lake. Feel free to arrive early, have a cup of coffee, and visit with members.
