Diet Better Review: Finishing My First Transformer

When you have a lot of fat to lose losing weight at first can seem easy.  That was how it went for me with my first Diet Better Transformer.  I actually completed this challenge in the first few months, and with a continuous flow of 4% challenges I was able to keep it off and then some by the end of the 6 months.  To the left is my final weigh in, at nearly 20kg's lighter than when I began.
