Through my various meetings and experiences, I have learned that most of us know how to lose weight, but the motivation is what makes it possible. I thought I’d share with you a note I wrote to myself last year in May: “Dear Nicola, You’re finishing up month five of your new healthy lifestyle. You have lost 65 pounds and are more than halfway to goal. I know you may be feeling like you’re OK with where you are now, or with not losing anymore. Stop it right now! Get back on track and kick butt! You’ve got this!” I am now 100 pounds less. It was hard work emotionally and physically, but I don’t regret anything. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.

TOPS can't do the work for you. You only get out of TOPS what you put into it. We can't guarantee weight loss just by attending meetings, but we can offer support through each stage of your weight-loss journey. Your results may vary.
