I am honest to a fault and believe a person is only as good as their word. When I tell you I will be there for you it is not just idle words. I like myself and the person that I am. But I do hate being fat

How long have you been in TOPS? 10 years.....I think.

Do you now or have you ever held a position in TOPS? I am currently weight recorder. I was leader for 4 years and secretary for 2 years before that. I have also worked with programs.

What has TOPS done for you? TOPS has helped me manage my weight and made me more aware of eating healthier. It has also boosted my confidence in myself. I was always a quiet person and never thought I could be leader of anything. But I love TOPS and am quite comfortable being leader.

What has this board done for you? This board keeps me motivated during the week. And I feel like all of you have become friends. I look forward to reading the messages each day.

What do you do to keep yourself motivated?

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:Onondaga, Michigan

How long have you been in TOPS: Since March 2001

Do you now or have you ever held a position in TOPS? currently co-leader

What has TOPS done for you? Given me support, and encouragement. Keeps me motivated by having to live up to what the scale says. The cost is great. If the cost was more, i don't think i could go. Having fun, and meeting new friends, and keeps me reading articles about weightloss.

What has this board done for you. Wow, so much. Support, motivation, encouragement, friendship, listens to babbling, journaling(helping me realize things about myself). Helping me become a better person.

What do you do to keep yourself motivated? exercise, and working on change. (from the inside out)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:breaking old habits.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm working on changing my thoughts, and my habits. Just because i'm eating low calorie veggies, doesn't mean i can over indulge. Learning self-control.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I usually put others first. If you hurt, i hurt. I'm not good at remembering dates, and things, but i constantly think of my friends, and wish the best for them. I would rather others be happy than myself, and i would do what i can to help them be happy. However, through this weight loss journey, i'm working on myself. Some of those habits, are the reason for me being overweight. It's ok to care for others, but an hour a day of exercise isn' t going to change anything that i give them. Plus, if I'm doing better, i can do more for others. We were put on this earth to do what we can, not what we can't.

Thumbs down

WOW!!!! I can't believe I actually figured out how to copy and paste something.

DATE: Dec 9, 2005 [updated today since things changed]

USERNAME: Summer

AGE: 51......but not for too much longer

BIRTHDAY: April 10

MARITAL STATUS: Married since 1981.....24 yrs

SPOUSE’S NAME: Bob

CHILDREN/AGES: Heather, 22 [who will be going back to college for nursing as soon as accepted to a program. She is a wonderful lady] and Melissa,19 [my sweet angel with severe disablities that needs total care]

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: reading, crossword puzzles, walking when I can, disability issues, health care

PETS: 10 yo extremely mellow red/white border collie. Very smart and obediant.

TOP WEIGHT: 231.25 when I joined TOPS. I think I was about 10-20#'s heavier before that.....but I wouldn't step on a scale.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 219

GOAL WEIGHT: 170

HEIGHT: 5'7"

EYE COLOR: blue

HAIR COLOR: brown, then mixed with gray....and now brown again for the past 9 yrs. LOLOL! Would look alot older without the 'bottle'.

OCCUPATION: home health CNA with dd. Finally started getting paid after 17yrs!!!!!!

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Colorado....waaayyyyy up in the mountains.

How long have you been in TOPS: since 10/92

Do you now or have you ever held a position in TOPS? Oh my, when have I not. Co-leader 2 yrs, leader 6 yrs, weight recorder 6yrs. Love them all, but especially leader.

What has TOPS done for you? Alot, it made me realize that I could succeed with my weight loss. BUT....hanging onto it is so hard and I will always be a TOPS member. I was Co State Queen Runnerup in 1995 and KOPS Charm and Beauty 2nd place winner at Co SRD in 1996. What an honor that was and something I will NEVER forget. I've lost KOPS twice and am striving for the 'lucky 3rd time'.

What has this board done for you: More than I could ever explain. Made some wonderful friends. We all have the same desire and to see others go through similar struggles lets me know that I'm not alone in this. I find the ladies here more open than my chapter members. What a WONDERFUL ON-LINE GROUP we have HERE!!!!

What do you do to keep yourself motivated? Keep going to the meetings, no matter how badly I know I have done. If it weren't for that 'metal monster' I would be back at my starting weight.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: My big mouth [not talking, mind you] and the elbow that bends.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: This time I need to get back to goal to be healthier. With age and taking care of dd, my knees are giving out and the old body cries out at me when I move it the wrong way. I had back surgury 21 years ago, so I'm reminded of that often too. The extra weight is SO HARD on the body. Why I abuse it like I do, I don't know.....but I am going to make it better!!!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm just so thankful that I found this board......and all my wonderful online friends. I'm like Eleni, I tell it like it is. Do try to be tactful, but never-the-less, truthful. LET"S GO LADIES!!!!!

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Wild Rose / Liz

AGE: Just turned 51

BIRTHDAY: Feb 9, 1952

MARITAL STATUS: Married (2nd time) 6 1/2 years (first time 20 years)

SPOUSE’S NAME: Vic

CHILDREN/AGES: Shelley (29) Kevin (27) Trevor (25) Colin (24) (Step-son) and Kristin (21) (Step-daughter). I also have a grand-daughter (Brylee) who will be 2 in May.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: reading, travelling

PETS: cat (actually cat-sitting for Kristin who moved out with 2 other cats last year)

TOP WEIGHT: 175

CURRENT WEIGHT: 160.25

GOAL WEIGHT: 150

HEIGHT: 5' 6"

EYE COLOR: hazel

HAIR COLOR: blonde

OCCUPATION: book keeper and office manager of small law firm

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

How long have you been in TOPS last rejoined Feb 2000 (member twice before, reached goal both times, so I know it can be done)

Do you now or have you ever held a position in TOPS? I have held every position except weight recorder. Presently Leader, but stepping down this March elections.

What has TOPS done for you? Kept my weight in check. Support. Knowing I'm getting weighed in keeps me focused. I want to be a good example.

What has this board done for you. Broadened my horizons. I learn from the postings of others.

What do you do to keep yourself motivated? Motivation has been hard. I do a lot of internet surfing and printing information so I cannot say that I lack information. My mother was obese, had diabetes and passed away from a heart attack at 76, and I promised myself I would not allow that to happen to me.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Lack of exercise, partly because of a physical problem with my knees. I am pretty good about food, watching calories etc. I think if I could heal the knees and get back to walking the rest of the weight would come off.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I thought being Leader of my chapter would help, but it hasn't. Less stress might be the answer...part of the reason I am resigning as Leader. I am trying to journal, but don't do it regularly enough.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I really enjoy the 3FC boards, even though I don't always post, I do read all the entries.

Do you now or have you ever held a position in TOPS? I'm an assistant weight recorder

What has TOPS done for you? I receive a lot of support and encouragement from others who are going thru the same struggle. Also, it helps me to keep track of my weight.

What has this board done for you?-- It shows me that I'm not alone in my struggle with weight loss.

What do you do to keep yourself motivated?-- I try and focus on the health benefits of weight loss. This includes the physical, mental and spiritual ramifications of feeling comfortable with yourself.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Being inconsistent with my food choices. My bad cravings for starch

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm getting older and don't want to have problems with my joints. I love to walk, so impaired mobility scares me.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
--I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but I'm hoping to change all of that now.
