As a nonprofit, noncommercial wellness organization, TOPS has helped millions to Take Off Pounds Sensibly since 1948. Here’s how we did it, with small steps leading to big achievements.
The TOPS Genome Project is launched at Texas Biomedical Institute in San Antonio, Texas. This new project aims to build on the many years of scientific advances through study of DNA samples provided by TOPS
members who volunteered to participate.
Anyone–not just TOPS members may participate in this groundbreaking study. Learn more.
TOPS announces its Million Pounds Mission , an initiative by TOPS president Barbara Cady encouraging members to lose a collective one million pounds in 2017.
At the halfway point, participation was so high that the goal was increased to 1.5 million pounds lost (including pounds kept off by members at goal weight until the end of the year).
