I couldn’t believe how she looked! It wasn’t just that she clearly lost a significant amount of weight, but her skin glowed… Read more or comment “Joanne”
Just a little story…… I had a yearly Doctor appt last week. Apparently at one time, (when I weighed 204 lbs!!)they snapped a photo of me sitting in the chair from the iPad they use.

August, 2011 had me utter the word, “vegan” for the first time. After my yearly physical total cholesterol had climbed to 264 mg/dL and would continue to increase unless I took preventive measures.
