I joined TOPS 3 weeks ago and really enjoy going. The weekly weigh in will be a key for me. The only thing I was having a problem with was food, water, and activity tracking. I want to be able to do it online and not the old paper way that TOPS provides. I kept finding myself wishing for a free or low cost online tracking program.
And ta-da! I found the Spark People site while browsing the TOPS site!
The other thing Spark People and TOP have in common ... neither is trying to make a profit off the weight loss struggles of others. That has always bothered me ... corporations who profit from my very personal health struggle. In my opinion, its immoral, compounded by the fact that most don't work.
Anyway, I feel like, for the first time in my life, all the components for my weight loss support are in line with my budget, with my beliefs, with my needs. And I do know from experience I can't do this alone. I am so happy and grateful!! I already feel supported, encouraged, and successful.
I went to a TOPS meeting this morning and enjoyed it. I will join next week. I hope it is the motivation I need to get back on track. The group was very friendly and welcomed me. Has anyone else had success with TOPS?
