Angry New bio.Updated as of June 10,2001

If you find any mistakes in info let me know.I just tried to put them all together as some were at the end plus I kept bringing it to the top.Anyone can copy and paste and put it on a word document.Hopefully new people will post their bio's here.This seemed like a good idea at the time. When you do put your bio's if you don't mind it is nice if you put your age and what state you are from.We are all a little curious

User name- Christian Real name- Christie
Location- Missouri Occupation- cashier at a Dollar Mart
Kids- 2 girls, Megan 4 and Marissa age 7
Married- 6 years to a wonderful guy (Jason)
When I started Tops- May of 2000
Weight when started- 155 weight now- 142 Goal weight- 135
Anything else- I started dieting in May of 1999 at 184 pounds and a size 18-20, I found out about Tops and knew it would help me to stay on track , I used the sugar busters program and prayer to get where I am today and the companionship of all my wonderful Tops Pals has kept me motivated to reach the goal I have set 184/142/135


User Name - lady06498 Real Name - Sherri
Location - NY
Occupation - I clean houses for people on my own. I have a total of 6 houses that I clean.
Kids - 1 daughter megan 2 1/2 years old
Married - I was married July 2000 to a wonderful man (John). We had been together 12 years before we were married.
When I started TOPS - November 16, 2000
Weight When Started - 168 1/4 lbs. Weight Now - 163 3/4 lbs. Goal Weight - 140

Anything Else - When I started to do different diets to lose weight I was at my highest weight ever. I was 193lbs. after having my daughter and stayed there or about 3 lbs lighter for the next 1 1/2 years. I got serious last jan. and started the ww123 plan at home on my own. With the help of the internet and the boards. I was in a size 18 1 year ago and now I am in a size 14. So I have dropped 2 sizes in one year. I joined tops because I wanted the weekly weigh ins and I felt that if I reported to a bunch of people every week that it would help me stay on track better, and it has. Tops was what I needed to stay motivated. I get the most support here though to be honest with you. Thank you all for that.

Hi! This is the first time I've posted to this list. My name is Connie and I'm from Oklahoma. I've been a TOPS member for a little over 2 years, starting weight 300, present weight 295, goal weight 150.... As you can see, I haven't done well, but keep hanging in there! I think that the extra support of a message board like this on a daily basis will help me stay on track. I am co-leader of our group for the second year in a row.
I am married to John for 13 years and we have a 10 1/2 year old son, Jonathon. We both also have adult children (a girl and boy each) and combined 13 grandchildren...
For pets we have two dogs, Lady and Lucky, and a very spoiled cat, Tigger...
I enjoy crafts, sewing, quilting, reading, writing, garage sales, my flowers outside, and just country living in general.
Look forward to getting to know you gals!
TOPS hugs,
Connie

Heaviest Weight: 430 (after son Dylan, in 1998)
Current Weight: 327
Goal: somewhere around 195 -- right now I'd be happy to see 250!
Exercise: Tae Bo, Richard Simmons Videos, XL Glider (similar to Gazelle), Ab-doer, Body Flex -- I try to vary it so I don't get bored!

I'm happy to see so many TOPS people over here! I try to get active on all the TOPS boards/loops, etc...helps me to stay focused and I need it! Been struggling for a while, and I still have a long way to go, but I figure so long as I can maintain it, I will start losing again someday! I've been overweight my whole life and once I reach my goal, I plan to keep it for the rest of my life! My boys deserve a healthy and happy Mom! Looking forward to getting to know everyone here!

Hi Lara and CBabe! Nice to see other new people here beside me!

Lara, I went to your web site. I LOVED the prayer! Hope you don't mind if I reprint it here -- I wanted other people to see it! It's great!!

DEAR GOD...

So far today, I've done alright. I haven't gossiped and I haven't lost my temper. I haven't been grumpy, nasty or selfish.


BUT in a few minutes, GOD, I'm going to get out of bed, and that is when I'm going to need a lot of help.

AMEN
