Changing TOPS Groups or Maybe All Together

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I sent a message to the area captain for TOPS earlier today and haven't gotten any reply yet. If I get a negative response, I guess I'll just have to quit all together. Hope that isn't the case. I haven't done anything to hurt anyone. My communications with the leader has been cordial.

So depressed right now I can't move. It will pass but that's where I'm at right now. I feel so up in the air over this. I wrote to the area captain just after noon today. No word yet. Will give her 24 hours and I will go over her head to the next person in charge.

I'm beginning to feel unwanted by this group. This is not doing much for the TOPS reputation.

I am almost to 40 lbs down since I joined. Can't believe this is the way they treat their successful members. . .

    I used to go to a TOPS group years ago so i find this to be very saddening for you, I know that typically they are pretty good but if you get a negative response maybe its time to move on to other more motivating places which would be best for your success at reaching your goals. Good Luck!

    A HUGE thank you to all of you who have commented on my blog!! I will figure this out. I will go on.

In fact, I went to the park and walked for 70 minutes. Then later, I jogged on my trampoline for a half an hour. And in a few minutes I am going to the gym. Yes!! I will keep my butt moving.

Endings are hard, but some just have to be. Still waiting for a response from the area captain. Might call her tomorrow.

Again, big thanks for taking the time to respond. I will move on...with this kind of support for sure!

    I had to go back and read what the problem with TOPS was...
I think the message you heard is not consistent with what TOPS is all about. (I've been a member since 2010.) It is a good thing to find a group that can be supportive of your goals, so do what ou need to do. Congrats on what you've done and on being aware of what you need (and do not need)

    Sometimes Emails can be interrupted badly.
If possible, meet Face to face.
If indeed they are being rude or one rotten apple is running the Group, then find another TOPS
If its the Group meetings you like, interactions, then IF there is not a TOPS to change to, maybe a Weight watchers Group would work.
Head up, Your Doing MAVELOUS emoticon emoticon

    Hugs and hugs and more hugs Rosie !! Tops is made up of people and people are PEOPLE... just like any others , some annoying, some jealous and some silly ! I hope you get to feeling better but dont dont dont LET this make you mess up all your success !! I sure hope that it does not continue to trigger your depression ... as this is NOT a good thing and it may be that moving on is just what you need to do !
wishing you only continued success !!

    Perhaps you body/mind is telling you to leave the group my age...I don't have TIME for downers. I'm sure you will make the right decision whatever it is! Have a great day today and try to put it out of your mind about the group. emoticon

    Keep up the good work - I use TOPS also - my group however is GREAT - but I can tell at times they get "jealous" as I'm younger and my activity has me losing more... well they'll get their way this week - damn community festival! BOY did I eat! emoticon

    Hopefully, the leader will respond soon and you can find another group! If not, then, there are plenty of other groups out there for someone like you! :)

    Is there an element of jealousy in your situation? If that's the case move on. They will have to learn to cope with their feelings, but you will be free of their response.

    Rosie, hopefully you'll get a supportive response. As you say, you are 40 lbs down, so you had some success with them. Right now you may have hit a huddle when it is either time to move on to something a bit more challenging for you Rosie or to work through your feelings around other team members. I don't really know what tops is like!!! So you'll know better.
Get someone you know and trust to read your posts because it maybe just my perception but you are starting hurt yourself and doubt yourself.
You maybe right, they maybe starting to make you feel unwanted but why? Because you are being so successful.

Good luck Rosie and you go for it girl. Now get that butt up and moving!! Xxxxx
