THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE. SO GLAD TO JOINED BEFORE BEING PUT ON BP MEDS. MAYBE YOU CAN MAKE CHANGES TO LOWER YOUR BP WITHOUT THEM. BE SURE AND USE YOUR TRACKERS. MONITOR YOUR SODIUM INTAKE. SODIUM IS EVERYWHERE. IT MAKES YOU RETAIN FLUIDS, IE WATER. IT CAUSES YOUR BP TO GO UP AND IT MAKES YOU WEIGH MORE. NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT TABLE SALT. I TRY TO KEEP MINE BELOW 2000EVERY DAY. HARD FOR ME. HOPE YOU ALL THE SUCCESS IN YOUR GOALS. .

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
