(AKRON BEACON JOURNAL) — Lolly Marzulli is making healthier choices these days, thanks to her church family at Trinity United Church of Christ.

The Akron, Ohio, congregation is encouraging its members to participate in a health initiative in partnership with Western Reserve Hospital of Summa Health System. The 15-week program, called Trinity Trimmers, was launched in January and is in its second round.

While most of the participants are trying to lose weight to maintain a healthy lifestyle, a few, like Marzulli, need to put on some pounds. Those needing to gain weight are dubbed Trinity Tubbies.
