One of the memories I have of my mom, (Hi Mom) is of the two of us going to TOPS meetings. TOPS is a weight loss group that meets once per week. The acronym means, "Taking Off Pounds Sensibly."

Basically we would go in for a group meeting once per week. We'd chat, pray, weigh ourselves and tell everybody in attendance how much weight we lost or gained each week. It was fun...for me. I didn't have a weight problem back in the day but my mom did, so we went together.

Times, they do change, as does my butt. I've made no secret about the fact that I was a Size 8 jean size when I met my husband. Those who know me, know that I am no longer a size 8. My goal now is a size 12. Ahem...

Honestly, my goal weight is where many women BEGIN their diets! ROFL I'm a happy gal. But I'm overweight. Sooo...I'm going to TOPS on Thursday. Wish me luck. :o)

Good luck!! There's a TOPS group at our local library I've considered joining, but honestly don't know where I'd fit it in my schedule.
You can do it!!
I started just eating more healthy foods last January, and suddenly realized I had dropped from a 14 to a loose 10 in about 6 months.
then the babies showed up on my doorstep!
now i'm lucky to swill some coffee and finish someone else's bowl of soggy frosted mini wheats by noon.
i can still fit in a 10, but it ain't loose, let me tell ya!!
