Tops® announces that a new lifestyle guide "Real Life: The Hands-On Pounds-Off Guide" is now available.


On-Line Membership

TOPS® Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the international non-profit, non-commercial weight loss support group, is now offering membership on-line for new members. As of January 1, 2002, individuals may become On-Line Members (OLM's) by enrolling on-line at TOPS®' website www.tops.org

TOPS® is making this new and convenient option available to help provide the type of 'cyber support' that's been gaining popularity nationwide.

Anyone interested in weight issues can use the TOPS® website at www.tops.org to become familiar with the TOPS® family. There is basic information about the psychology of losing weight, proper nutrition, and the role of exercise. Various experts write articles monthly on these subjects. There is also a bulletin board available for anyone to post messages. In addition to this, On-Line Members are entitled to join a neighborhood chapter anytime within 12 months of their on-line enrollment date, though they are not required to do so.

On-Line Members receive their own personalized membership card, a member handbook to record their progress, and a 40 page magazine filled with inspirational stories, recipes and news. They are also eligible to attend low-cost weight-loss retreats and local events.

The annual membership fee is $29.50 which includes a $1.50 processing charge. The fee can be paid using a credit card on-line.

For years, TOPS® members and others interested in losing weight have been flocking to chat rooms and bulletin boards on the Internet to share their enthusiasm with one another over weight loss success. This new dimension in TOPS® membership allows more people to obtain access to TOPS®' unique brand of counsel and legendary support, people who may be unwilling or unable to make a commitment to weekly chapter meetings that TOPS® offers. The Internet provides an ideal way to accommodate these needs.

TOPS® has been offering support groups for people wishing to control their weight for over 65 years. There's nothing quite like the attention and fellowship one can receive from others. But as our lives get busier, it's harder to make those weekly commitments. It's a relief to know you can now get the support you need on-line! We're always on the lookout for new ways to help people. This new way of joining now brings TOPS® into the 21st Century with easy on-line Internet access.
