How TOPS Chooses Winners
TOPS uses three different methods of tabulating weight loss for determining Royalty, International Royalty and Division Winners.

- Royalty* earn this honor by losing more weight than anyone else in their province or state who reached their weight-loss goal in a given year. They are considered the “king” or “queen” of that state or province.
- International Royalty are the four men and women (King, Queen, Runners-Up) who lost more weight than anyone else in the US and Canada at the end of the year, and have officially recorded the largest weight loss from their highest weight recorded at TOPS, regardless of the time taken to reach their goal.
- Division Winners are recognized within divisions which are based on members' starting weights of each year. Winners lost the most weight within their division during the calendar year.
