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! 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.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
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.
