Hi Suz! I am 5 weeks into the program and 13.2 lbs lighter! I am on the numbered plan #5. (In 4 lbs I will go to plan #4! YAY!) I hope you find all the info and encouragement here as helpful as I have! I noticed our stats are close to the same. I am currently 249, down from 263 (July) and I once was 274 (in March), and I want to be 150. Good Luck!!
