I have now lost 13 pounds since joining SP. I have learned to love a variety of healthy foods, especially fruits and vegetables I had never tried before. The SP Cookbook has been a treasure trove of excellent recipes that make me feel like I'm not depriving myself. I can actually see myself continuing this lifestyle for the long-haul. Plus, I'm having a positive influence on my husband, who has embraced a love of healthier food and exercise as well. We are going on a cruise in less than 2 weeks and are looking forward to all of the active shore excursions we're signing up for.
