Getting here...The Birchcreek Mansion New York
"I have been to the Biggest Loser, Canyon Ranch and a detox retreat in Thailand. I lost more weight at Jump Start than all the others combined - I worked for it and it was worth the results...yes, I will be returning to Jump Start , this time in Costa Rica!"
