Hi all,
I just joined SparkPeople after several years being away...the kids were taking up most of my time! My story is that I am 46 years old with two children (ages 13 and 11), and two years ago I started getting these strange headaches on the left side, right behind my ear. They would happen when I was exerting myself or when I was stressed out. I suffered for a couple of weeks and finally went to the doctor. My blood pressure was 140/110. I was immediately given a prescription of atenolol (50 mg). I have been on this medication for two years. At my last annual appointment (last week) I was given a clean bill of health...cholesterol went down, good cholesterol went up and blood pressure great at 120/70. I have been exercising and eating right for a while now and I feel that especially the exercise has made a huge difference. My doctor lowered my medication to 25 mgs! I'm very happy to have rediscovered SparkPeople and the tracking, recipes, videos and forums have been a huge motivator! Thanks so much & it can be done with hard work and perserverence!

Each day, and in every way, we are getting better and better
