I'm Peekawho, CL of the Dieting Community, and the Healthy Cooking Community. I'm popping in to invite any of you to come over and make yourselves at home, have a cup of coffee, read, and contribute if you can. I've personally lost 45 pounds over 6-7 months with simple changes to my diet, and with sensible exercise. It can be done without pills, and without severely depriving yourself. I've been able to cut my BP meds in half after losing weight.
