Recently Laura Wickwar, Coordinator for NC chapters of TOPS (Take Pounds Off Sensibly) Inc, contacted me to tell me about the non-profit weight loss group. TOPS was started to help members focus on lifestyle and eating habits and what will help them succeed in improving their health and quality of life; it's not a 'diet' program or 'get thin quick' gimmick.
TOPS does not sell special food or urge members to follow a specific diet either. However, they do recommend using 1 of 2 healthy eating plans - The Food Exchange System and MyPlate. Both are meal plans concentrated on consuming the optimal amount of nutrients in the ideal portions.
Hello! I'm Carli, a girl originally from Ohio, who could not be more proud to call Raleigh home the last 12+ years. By day, I work at SAS Institute but when I'm not working, I'm a mom to an amazing boy and 2 dogs. In my free time, I love to stay active working out, playing sports, traveling, crafting, attending a sports game/concert, or shopping!
