We sometimes fixate on weight or #'s lost. When Emulin goes to work and we lose fat cells, and we gain it in muscles for energy. Muscle weighs more than fat! I've been taking it since Feb 8th. Yesterday I fit into a golf shirt I haven't worn since I last played golf with my father. He passed away in 2011. So it was in 2010 I last wore it. I have lost many inches, and my muffin top is gone, my neckline is much firmer, as are my upper arms. I am down more than 2 pant sizes too!
