Welcome to TOPS weight-loss support!
No quick fixes. No fad diets. No pills or magic potions.
No outrageous monthly fees.
TOPS Club, Inc. is the original, nonprofit,
weight-loss support and wellness education organization. Our program
is scientifically proven and has helped millions over the last 60+
years. TOPS promotes successful, affordable weight management with a
hands-on pounds-off® approach that combines:
- healthy eating
- regular physical activity
- wellness information
- awards and recognition
- support from others at weekly chapter meetings
Weekly meetings provide a supportive,
educational environment where people are encouraged and not judged.
If face-to-face meetings aren’t your style or if you can’t find a
meeting that fits your schedule, you can be an online member and
still take advantage of our experts’ tips and our many print and
online materials. Plus, you can choose to join a chapter at any time
in the future or change chapters.
With nearly 10,000 chapters across the U.S. and
Canada, each meeting is a little different, so you might want to
visit a few meetings in your area to find the one that’s best for
The first visit to any chapter is free.
- Each meeting starts with a private Weigh-In,
so you can stay accountable to the goals you’ve set for
- That’s often followed by Roll Call, which
is a chance for members to share challenges, successes, or goals
if they wish to.
- Many chapters hand out Awards each week or
month and participate in the TOPS International Recognition
- TOPS experts on nutrition, fitness, and motivation share
their best tips for taking off pounds sensibly in our brief,
Chapter Programs, presented by volunteer
- The meeting closes with a Thought for the Week
or other inspirational activity.
So what do I do in between meetings or if I’m an online member?
- Follow the six steps to a healthier, leaner lifestyle
outlined in My Day One, a ready-set-go guide for weight
loss that you receive free with your membership.
- Choose foods you enjoy, in moderation, on the TOPS meal
plan. The flexible guidelines help you control calories while
eating real food that you make at home or order in a restaurant.

How much does it cost?
It costs about $30 a year to belong to TOPS, plus local chapter dues
of about $5 a month. There’s nothing else to buy, although TOPS does
offer its members a wide variety of helpful books and other
merchandise for purchase and holds events and retreats that may
require a registration fee. None of these are required as part of
our weight-loss program, but we strongly recommend
The Choice Is Mine, a 232-page lifestyle guide chock full
of valuable information that will help you stop the cycle of yo-yo
dieting and start living a healthy, satisfying life.
If you join at a meeting, the annual fee for
United States residents and those with U.S. mailing addresses
(including APO) is just $28. Canadian residents pay $32.
