Cynthia Rainfrette-Barlow of Lincolnville has been named the 2021 Maine Queen for 2022 by TOPS Club, Inc., (Take Off Pounds Sensibly,), a nonprofit weight-loss support organization. TOPS royalty are women and men who, at the end of the year, have officially recorded the largest weight loss from their starting weight, regardless of the time taken to reach their goal. Rainfrette-Barlow was honored May 14 at the Maine recognition event in Brewer.

“Through their participation in TOPS, we are extremely proud of our TOPS members’ weight-loss accomplishments,” said TOPS President Rick Danforth, who has maintained a 100-pound weight loss for more than 15 years. “Celebrating the life-changing achievements of not only these individuals but those who have come before them is a hallmark of TOPS’ winning formula. By maintaining a commitment to personal lifestyle changes, TOPS members are given the tools and assistance to achieve their weight loss goals.”
