I am 67, have asthma, and was resigned to being 40 pounds overweight. I decided to try SOTA because of all the great reviews especially because of the maintenance plan. I have lost weight before and gained it back. I have now lost 42.5 pounds! I feel great, my asthma is under control, the program works and the staff is marvelous. All I can say is no matter how old you are or how many times you have tried to lose weight, give SOTA a chance. It does work!
