I an trying to assemble a query that does the following in psudo code but in a single query without using a temp table.  I'm not sure how to do it.  Can someone help?

Query 1
SELECT Distinct UserID
FROM UserTable

Query 2
Start Loop of results from query 1)
  SELECT count(*) as RecordCount
  FROM UserTable
  WHERE UserID = UserID (from query 1)
End Loop of results from query 1)

I put all the results of query 2 into a temp  table.

Then I query the temp table as follows.

SELECT UserID
FROM Query2ResultSet
ORDER BY RecordCount desc
Display Top 10

Thanks in advance.

I meant the above was in psudo code.  I am trying to put together a real sql query that will run in MSSQL 2008 R2.

Thanks.
