LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – If you’re looking to shed pesky pounds and inches and you’re still having trouble losing weight, there’s still hope.

Recently, a woman from Las Vegas and a man from Pahrump lost weight through a non-profit organization called TOPS, which stands for Take Off Pounds Sensibly.

Esther Ortega of Las Vegas, who lost 65 pounds, and Donald White of Pahrump, lost 80 pounds. They were announced as the 2016 Nevada Queeen and King at “The Season of TOPS” State Recognition Days event. It was held at the Aliante Hotel and Casino, on April 5-7, in North Las Vegas.

“We are so gratified by our TOPS members’ amazing weight-loss accomplishments,” said Barbara Cady, TOPS President. “Commemorating their life-changing achievements is an essential component of TOPS’ winning formula, whether losing weight or maintaining goals,” she said.

TOPS offers a personal approach to weight loss and overall wellness. Consistent group support, health education, and recognition are all key components to successful weight management.

Visitors are welcome to attend their first TOPS meeting for free. Membership is affordable at just $32 per year in the United States and $48 per year in Canada, plus chapter fees.
