I blamed my weight gain on the cancer medicine I have been on for over two years, my age which is 49, basically on things I claimed were out of my control. Then I started Sota. Started on November 5 and was at my goal of 35 lbs by mid February. I’m at my goal two weeks early so I am going to try to lose 5 more lbs than I planned to when I started! I can’t believe how easy the program has been. Made it through two holidays and three trips and still stayed on target. If you follow the program, it works. It’s that simple.
