"Thanks to TOPS and my TOPS family, you can now see the results. I know that if I keep doing what I am doing and pass on what has been given to me so freely, I will keep what I have."

Bob L. - Lost 140.00 lb. - 2016 International King

Height: 6'    Achievement: 140.00 lb. lost with TOPS    Chapter: TOPS GA 0038 Valdosta

My weight has always been a lifelong struggle for me and, as a result, caused me to be shy and withdrawn. I have lost varying amounts of weight many times – as much as 100 pounds during some periods. But the weight always came back. Then, I just stopped trying. I thought that the up-and-down cycle was worse for me rather than maintaining my weight in one place.

My wife joined TOPS before I did. She asked me to help her with the healthy recipes (as I do most of the cooking). She was very successful in her weight-loss journey, but I wasn’t. I was still cooking differently for her than for me.

At some point during my wife’s journey, I was reminded that TOPS is not a diet, but a support group. And if I were to follow the same principles that I applied in my journey against alcoholism – another one of my life battles – I might succeed.

Thanks to TOPS and my TOPS family, you can now see the results. I know that if I keep doing what I am doing and pass on what has been given to me so freely, I will keep what I have.
