Hi Gina, welcome. When I first joined TOPS I lost my first 20 pounds quickly, but I found the group's true worth when I stagnated in my weight loss. For over a year I was losing and gaining the same three pounds. If I didn't have TOPS I would have given up at that point and I would certainly have gained the weight back. TOPS are truly encouraging and have motivated me to keep going. Good luck!

Welcome Gina. You can do what you set your mind to and TOPS is a great support group.

Trust God, believe in yourself, and keep looking forward. You can't change the past. You are always special.

My name is Gina. I went to my first TOPS meeting last. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had heard about it from someone online a long time ago but wasn't aware TOPS was in my area until I did some research online. I was pleasantly surprised to see just how much I enjoyed myself. I learned some interesting facts about weight loss, and living healthier. I met some really nice people. They walked me through each step of the meeting. They even allowed me to weigh in *unofficially* since I haven't paid my membership yet. The scale showed 308.8 and instead of being in omg mode. I truly felt that this is it. This is the moment when I begin to truly loose the other person trapped inside of me. My next meeting is Thursday. I will pay my dues at that time, and be an official member. Btw, I am 38 years old, married, mother of five children, and three dogs. We live in Eastern North Carolina.
