Jackie Meyers was recently crowned Utah's TOPs (take off pounds sensibly) and KOPS (keep off pounds sensibly) queen. Meyers lost 103 pounds in 18 months and will go on to international competition July 3.
"TOPS is an international club, so I will be competing against people from places like Japan and France. It's like a beauty contest, but it's all based on weight loss. Whoever lost the most weight will be crowned queen," Meyers said. The competition will include events such as a baggy clothes parade.Meyers, 28, joined TOPS when she weighed 240 pounds. Eighteen months later, she weighed in at 137.
