Hello Brooke, I’m in the Houston area and I was able to stay on protocol!! Yes, I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m 5’4 and 48 years old. I started the weight loss program on Aug 21. My starting weight was 142lbs and I’m already down to 135. My initial weight loss goal was 125 lbs after speaking to Pat I’ve decided to make 120 lbs my goal. Whoot Whoot!
