Losing weight now that is a topic we have all heard people talking about, personally I have tried so many diets and programs that don't seem to provide me with a long term solution. Finally I came to a conclusion that I do not have any motivation to lose weight, so what is the solution to my weight loss journey that is not going to cost me an arm and a leg?
I found a non-profit weight loss club called T.O.P.I.C. located at Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. T.O.P.I.C. stands for taking off pounds in company, they believe in losing weight together without taking advantage of you by making a profit from your weight loss struggles.
T.O.P.I.C. hold weekly meetings for members who have already lost weight and for new members who would like to join and receive support as they begin their weight loss journey.
Upon entering the building I was greeted by two ladies who have successfully lost weight whilst being members of the club. They were very enthusiastic and helped me to feel welcome even though I was quite hesitant about the whole process. I filled in my registration form and received a book full of information about the club and guides to healthy eating. My photograph was taken and my body measurements were recorded in an exercise book they provided me to help monitor my weight loss achievements.

T.O.P.I.C. does not promote any particular eating programs or diets they simply provide information to help you make your own decisions about eating healthy. There is also a library of books made available to you for information and recipe ideas. This club is a team of supportive women who encourage, love, accept and celebrate each other as each individual loses weight.
I found it very refreshing to learn T.O.P.I.C. was not a weight loss club based around making a profit and instead they provided genuine people who cared about me whilst sharing their weight loss journey and giving back to the community.
What I enjoyed most about the club is the fact it wasn't focused on trying to sell me products to lose weight, instead their time and motivation was to purely focus on me as an individual and what I personally needed for my weight loss journey. By receiving support from the members of T.O.P.I.C. whilst learning how to eat healthy and excercise I walked away feeling optimistic about my weight loss for the long term.
To join the T.O.P.I.C. weight loss club it costs each person an annual membership fee of $10 and $4 for weekly meetings. The money raised helps to support the individual's weight loss journey by providing you with rewards and incentives as you lose weight.

T.O.P.I.C.'sweekly meetings are designed to monitor your progress and keep you accountable by weighing you on the scales each week whilst occasionally providing guest speakers or experts who share their knowledge on topics surrounding nutrition and physical exercise.
