NEW UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its been 6 weeks ( as of today 5-6-2011) and I can see a bit of difference in my energy level , but not so much in my body. Pounds are coming off very slow , Thats good some say. Still feeling strong about my jounery of a better lifestyle thanks to all of you sparkers for the motivation and excellent support. I will update in another 6 weeks or so. I am doing everything in 6 weeks. It tends to keep me in a program change for everything from exercise to meal plans to weigh ins. See you soon sparkies!
