H there! Please, please don't feel discouraged. I've been on the Spark program for 3 weeks and have not lost any weight--but I fit better in clothing and I think my stomach looks less swollen than it used to. When over 40 it's really tough to lose that weight--our metabolism changes dramatically. I've been exercising every day for 3 weeks, too, and keeping my calories within the range of what SPARK suggests for my weight loss goals--still no dice. If I can keep plugging with all of this, so can you. The causes you are making right now are inconspicuous but eventually they will become conspicuous!
