New UGA TOPS chapter

UGA now has its own chapter of the weight-loss program TOPS (Take Pounds Off Sensibly). Annual membership is $32, and the first visit is free.

The nonprofit group meets ­Tuesdays from noon to 12:45 p.m. in Room 265 of the Chicopee Complex, 1180 E. Broad St. Pre-meeting, confidential weigh-ins are done from 11:30 a.m. to noon or by appointment.

The UGA chapter started April 26 with eight members, who all came back for the second meeting and as a group lost 16.8 pounds. No one gained weight, and the chapter grew to 14 members.
