Hi ~ Welcome to SparkPeople. I find that interacting with other Sparks is really the best way to stay motivated and on-track. Taking advantage of the educational aspects of SP is also key to weight loss goal success. Come back to the message boards and read blogs to find people that you feel like you would like to "friend" These folks will help you attain your goals.
Know that through using SparkPeople to it's fullest potential will help you more successfully attain your goals. Come up with a BIG reward (like mine is a cruise) to help you stay focused and successful in maintaining your new healthy lifestyle. And look at this as a change in your lifestyle, not just another diet.
Don't know about the guten free solution to high blood pressure, but reduction in weight will help it along with exercise everyday. Studies have shown that even a little exercise goes a long way at reducing blood pressure.
For any questions on SparkPeople that you have if you can't find them on the site yourself or through using the HELP section, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. They will answer your questions and help you out.
Best of luck
