So I have spread some! I have the muffin top over my jeans and I really didn't feel comfortable.
My friend raved about this and how healthy she felt so I bought the book, read up and started with hubby. It have been a little up and down but this forum has offered great support so I am focused on a way of life, not a quick win. I started at just over 72kgs and this morning weighed in under 68kgs.
