Colorado, Lost 227.50 lb. with TOPS

"It has been a long journey but it’s one I’m so glad I took."

I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. I lost and gained more pounds than I care to think about, and I’ve tried every diet out there, starting when I was a teen. All that changed when I joined TOPS.

I still remember my first meeting—I didn’t want to join but I told my mom I would if the scale went high enough to be able to weigh me. Well, it did and I joined. TOPS has been a part of my life ever since.

Losing weight was easy at first. I went to the gym faithfully, even though all I was able to do was workout in the pool. After losing 100 pounds, I hit a plateau for over four years. Although I was tempted to give up, I stayed the course. Today I weigh about 50 pounds less than I did in high school and I feel great! This has definitely been a lifestyle change for me and many of my bad habits have long been forgotten. If I really want something I have it, but just a small amount. It has been a long journey but it’s one I’m so glad I took.
