The Harrison County YMCA is pleased to announce they will be a meeting site for TOPS® (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly®).  An open house was held on Monday, April 3, at 5:00 p.m. to educate people on how TOPS® works.  Weekly meetings will be held on Mondays at 5 p.m. at the Y.

TOPS®, a nonprofit weight-loss support group, was founded in 1948.  It offers tools and programs for healthy living and weight management, with exceptional group fellowship and recognition.  The weekly meetings include private weigh-ins and professionally prepared informational chapter programs featuring current nutrition, fitness and wellness information.  Programs provide positive reinforcement and motivation to adhere to healthy eating and exercise programs.

The Harrison County YMCA was formed in 1966, a project of the Clarksburg Rotary.  Collaborations such as the one with TOPS® help the Y meet its mission to provide programs that meet the needs of the community.
