Hi Juana. Welcome to one of the best sites on the web. I hope that you have a lot of success with your weight loss journey. SparkPeople is pretty easy to navigate once you've looked around and played with it for a little while. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in a day or two.

As far as the question of blood pressure meds goes, I've got you beat. I take 100 mg of generic Toprol twice a day and 20 mg of generic Acupril twice a day, so all together I'm taking 240 mg of BP meds! emoticon I haven't been trying very hard to keep the sodium out of my diet for a while so my BP has gotten way out of control. I'm having to start really paying attention to what I buy at the grocery, nutritional content and such. I had to check the amount of sodium in every single thing I was thinking about buying and it was a real eye opener, in spite of the fact that I thought I know what was in the stuff I buy regularly.

So anyway, welcome to SparkPeople and to our group. I wish you good luck in all of your health related endeavors.

There was much rejoicing!

Hello I'm Juana and I'm new to this site. I don't have a real understanding of this site yet. I would like some help. I also have high blood pressure and take 125mg of blood pressure meds a day. I'm wondering if anyone else takes as much. I have five of my own children and 1 niece and 2 nephews living with my husband and I. I would greatly appreciate any response.
