Sometime ago I promised someone I would explain this status picture.
Seems I did not do it.
Well, here goes, When I became desperate to lose weight I joined TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) and also found Spark.
Get on your mark set go.
On February 12th of 2007 was my start day.
I had 52 pounds to lose.
On September 15 2007 I reached my goal of 152.
Don't say you can't do it when you are older. Some are in their 60's and think they are too old to lose weight.
Now TOPS has yearly meetings where TOPS graduate to KOPS (Keep off pounds sensibly) and some become queens.
I graduated to a KOPS and became queen of our chapter and I think I have a ribbon showing of our district also.
Many others lost much more as they had much more to lose.
Some lose 100 or more pounds.
So a friend of mine helped me choose a dress, paid for it, others helped me with underwear, another with a ring and off I went to our yearly
It was awesome. So many queens, kings and KOPS and a candle for each KOPS as they circled the big hall.
I have a trophy cabinet with trophies, tiara, ribbons, charms, etc.
Why would I ever want to give that up?
So many memories.
So those who didn't know and asked now you know.
I have a friend on the KOPS team of SPARK who is little princess. She knows how it feels.
Let's go everyone.
