Good Afternoon Jen- Curious to what protein powder you would recommend. With all the sinus issues I have I can't help but wonder if I could be doing something different in my diet.
God Bless - Thank you for sharing your love of life on the web.

With love and Support.

I am so completely amazed by your workout and eating plans. The last pounds that you want to lose must be melting off of you! I can't believe that you have much more weight left on you to lose at this point!!
