Hi fellow dieters, healthy people!!! I just joined this month, and I am looking for some moral support. I have already lost about 60 pounds on my own, and with the help of TOPS. I have over 190 pounds left to lose. If you have been where I am, and are successfull, I want to be your buddy.

Isn't TOPS a 12 step program?

No, TOPS is Taking Off Pounds Sensibly. Its a support group, and we follow our own individual plans. I am really enjoying it. We meet once a week. We are held accountable for our weight. Look it up on the internet, I bet there is a chapter in your area!! Can never have too much moral support!!

Katuchi, I think the fact that somebody besides me is holding me accountable is really helping. I am feeling good, and so much better. I just keep thinking about how bad I was feeling, and that's almost motivating enough. I have two girls, 7 & 11, and they have so many things to do in life, and I want to see it all! I don't have time to waste! I have to make everyday count! And, that's what I'm doing and have been for 3 and a half months! My life quality is not what I want, and for a second I forgot that I deserve to be happy. I just need to keep it one day at a time.Wink

Great job! So far on this diet I have lost 51 pounds total..I'm not doing tops but I'm right along there with ya ...I have 145 pounds more to lose before I reach my goal weight. Which at this point is discouraging , but one step at a time! Good luck with your weight loss ...keep up the great work!
