ROCKLAND — Several Rockland, Maine residents are embracing healthier lifestyles after starting an inspirational workshop, Harvest Your Best Self, a chapter of a nonprofit weight loss support group. Weekly TOPS® Chapter meetings are held at the Recovery Church located at 30 Sherer Lane, Rockland, Maine on Tuesdays from 5-6:30 p.m.
Debra Scillia, Maine-based attorney of TOPS, spoke about inspiring topics on how to stay the course of weight loss and achieve sensible pound reduction goals.
Also, Maine’s second queen, Pam Tibbets, talked about her success story of how she rose to royalty and won at the weight loss game, which was also very inspiring.
There were many door prizes, a harvest raffle, a spa raffle and a 50/50 raffle offered. Centerpieces were also raffled off. They were fashioned with flickering candles in fire-red buckets adorned with sunflowers and came with apples.
“We are delighted to welcome our workshop to our TOPS section! We encourage anyone looking for weight loss support to start or continue their journey with us,” says Sally A. Lehtinen, Chapter Leader.
