i am nearing retirement and have been carrying around 80 extra pounds for the last 35 years. i am ready to be healthy. My tipping point was right before Thanksgiving; I weighed 228 and was waking up in the morning with headaches. After five days I checked my blood pressure, which was almost 160 systolic.
