Trinity Standard -


By Cynthia Hance,

Take Pounds off Sensibly Take Pounds off Sensibly (T.O.P.S.) has been present in Trinity for over 20 years, but has never had as much exposure as it has now. Janet Stewart of Trinity, TX set records and has received recognitions/awards at the local and state levels. Janet joined T.O.P.S in 2013, got serious in 2015, and didn't know her life would change so drastically. By April 2016, she was weighing in every week, had perfect attendance, and took her accountability seriously. She became a K.O.P.S. (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) member when she reached her goal weight. By April 22, 2016, she had lost a total of 112 lbs. She was a Division 2, first place winner locally, and she was recognized as at State Recognition Days (SRD) 2016. At SRD 2017, San Marcus, Janet was recognized and awarded the "Century" award, for losing and keeping off 100 lbs for one year. She finally graduated at the state level as a Division 2, first place winner and received the "1,000 plus miles walked" award. Janet is also the local TOPS Queen for 2016 and the chapter's 2016 "Beacon of Light". She also earned the title of "State Queen SRD 2017" for losing her goal of 112 lbs. That award will make her eligible for the 2017 International Recognition Days (IRD) held in Arkansas, as well as division placement. T.O.P.S is proud of Janet, and is proud to have her represent Trinity, TX. Janet's journey is an inspirational story. To hear it or to become motivated, contact Trinity's chapter of T.O.P.S. Janet is a different person today than she was when she began. She conquered her goals despite the health issues and roadblocks she encountered along the way.
