On Nov. 19, Juanita Larson was honored at TOPS OH1487, with achieving her KOPS, (Keep Off Pounds Sensibility) status. She reached her goal weight on Oct. 1.
Juanita said, “I have struggled with weight for several years and have always enjoyed various activities with my husband, Warren.” Two years ago Juanita was diagnosed with cancer, and her life turned upside down. She no longer had the energy to do the things Warren and she so enjoyed. The additional weight she carried hindered her recovery. After nearly dying from the treatment, Juanita decided to turn to ‘Dr. GOD’. She still has cancer, but with the encouragement of her TOPS friends and husband Warren, she is in remission and has achieved her KOPS goal.
