LEONARDTOWN, MD (March 14, 2023) – The St. Mary’s County Health Department (SMCHD) is now offering the Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS®) program to St. Mary’s County community members. Since 1948, TOPS® has provided weight-loss support to millions of people by offering tools for healthy living and weight management.

Participants in the TOPS® program attend weekly in-person or online meetings to help them achieve their weight-loss goals. They will also be able to access members-only resources to support healthy eating and physical activity, including recipes, a weight tracker, and fitness guides. The first 30 participants in St. Mary’s County will get a free membership. Others can access TOPS® programming starting at $49 per year.

“The regular support of others and the resources of a program can be key to helping some people establish a healthy lifestyle and achieve a healthier weight.” said Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s County Health Officer. “Trying to do it alone can be tough. Unhealthy lifestyles and carrying excessive weight can directly lead to many different chronic illnesses, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer.”

To participate in the St. Mary’s County Health Department TOPS® program, please complete this form or call 301-475-4330.
