Vince received a charm for being a K.O.P.S. for two years, and Audrey received a charm for being a K.O.P.S. for nine years. K.O.P.S. (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) are those in T.O.P.S. who have reached and maintained their weight-loss goal, and they are a huge inspiration to those of us who are still on the journey to our goals. Congratulations to these two folks!
