The idea of meeting with other dieters for mutual encouragement occurred to Esther S. Manz as she awaited the arrival of her fifth child. While participating in group sessions designed to prepare women for childbirth, she witnessed the power of mutual support in helping the women stay within their doctors' guidelines for pregnancy. She discussed the idea with her personal physician who encouraged her to carry it out.

TOPS was born around a kitchen table (wouldn't you know it!) in 1948 when Mrs. Manz and two friends gathered with others at the "Beulah Brinton Recreation Center" in Milwaukee. Their desire was to support each other to thinner figures and better health.
After the Milwaukee Journal published an article about the new group, Esther recalled, "So many people showed up that we could hardly get through the crowd to our meeting room!"
From the very beginning, TOPS decided that anyone who succeeded in losing a lot of weight deserved royal treatment. Within a year, TOPS crowned its first queen. Queens have been crowned in every year since then-and kings, too-since 1957.
By the end of TOPS' second year, Esther Manz was riding the bus to TOPS chapters all over town, carrying the TOPS scale and records in a shopping bag.
