Alan Bales is one of the original organizers of the Rye Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS) group and has had amazing weight loss results with the group. Weighing in at 288 ˝ pounds when the group was formed in August of 2019, Bales is now almost unrecognizable with a 79-pound weight loss. That is a 27.4 % weight loss.

Outgoing and good-natured, Bales is more than willing to share information about his success. Bales says, “I feel one thousand percent better not carrying all that weight. I feel better physically and mentally and if my story can help just one person, I want to encourage them. Prior to this weight loss, I was on eighteen different prescriptions. Now, I am off insulin and down to seven prescriptions. I’m still heavy, but not like I used to be. I am proud of what I have done.”
