Joyce W. - Lost 154.5 lb.
Height: 5'1 ½" Achievement: 154.5 lb. lost with TOPS Chapter: TOPS ON 2590
I started gaining weight in my late 20’s. I would lose it and gain it back—and more. Being overweight, I found it hard to do simple things like tying my runners. I couldn’t walk very far as my legs hurt, and I was out of breath. I just wasn’t feeling good. I knew I had to do something.
My doctor suggested surgery, but I did not want that. It just wasn’t for me. While having coffee with two of my friends, they suggested I try TOPS and even looked into it for me.
My weight-loss journey began on November 6, 2015. I started journaling, eating healthier and making better choices. I went for short walks, used my stepper and recumbent bike. The weight started to come off and I started feeling better. TOPS was the best decision I have ever made. Being accountable to the scale and staying for the meetings kept me on track.
Since losing my weight, I have had no problem bending down or walking. I feel great! I have gone from size 5X to a size 14. I am very proud of what I have accomplished.
I would like to thank my family, friends and my TOPS pals at ON 2590 Thunder Bay. Without you, I would never have done this.
In closing, I’d like to say, believe in yourself. You are worth it.
