High Blood Pressure.... REALLY

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

So yesterday I just wasn't feeling myself. My heart seemed to be beating differently not sure hot to explain but generally you don't really notice your heart beat unless you've been exercising or something yesterday mmy heart beat was evident all day. So I called and made an appointment with the doctor. Apparently I have high blood pressure and have just been placed on medication. What more motivation do I need... now I have yet another reason to lose this weight, I do not want to be on this medication for the rest of my life.

    I have had high blood pressure for years, but it's been doing really well since I started SparkPeople. I find that if I stick to good eating, in my case including limited sodium, I can keep it at a normal level. Exercise also makes a huge difference. Good luck!

    Take it as a wake up call. I had mine with high cholesterol and conquered it with a new healthy lifestyle.
