I joined SOTA about 6 weeks ago because I have seen how well some others have done. It is an expensive program, but I have had success. I am down 27 lbs at this point, and I am still highly motivated. My wife and I are doing this together, so that helps. The first week was a little difficult due to adjusting to a new normal. Some of the products are very good, while I dislike some others. My wife and I are empty nesters, so we have cleared all the excess food out of the house. This really helps not to be tempted. The weekly check-ins with the SOTA nutritionists have been very helpful. My wife and I have a long way to go, but we are very happy with the program so far!!
