Welcome, TSB2003 ! Congratulations on being able to lower your pressure so much -- now, as you have said, you just have to make it stick....

I would try writing down the reasons why you want to continue to keep your BP in a normal range, and why you want to be healthy. There can be so many bad effects on our bodies from high blood pressure, just as there are from diabetes and many other conditions. Keep your reasons for being healthy in the front of your mind, and let those guide you in making your choices; because, in the end, it's all about choices, and if there's any one thing that we actually have control over in our lives, it's what we put into our mouths.

Best wishes to you --

I am a 32 year old self proclaimed salt addict! I have had this on again off again love affair with my blood pressure because of it since my early 20s. The first time a doctor told me my blood pressure was a little high ( at the tender age of 22), I said thank you. I had no clue that that single statement would shape the rest of my life. By 26, I was officially diagnosed with hypertension and put on medication. I thought this was a death sentence. 26 and I have to take medication for the rest of my life! I made "the changes": lost weight, working out, laid off the coffee, quit smoking (several times)...you know the usual doctor recommended solutions but it has yet to stick. Well I am at it again...I got my blood pressure down 20 points in 3 months! Yes yes my doctor is impressed...but how to make it stick??? I welcome the support Sparkies and you have mine as well...we can make it stick!
