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

Good luck with your goal. Your plans are excellent and no matter what with these steps in place you will become much healthier.
"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
I just started on this site and I'm excited about all of the support. It really brightens my day to just know I have this as a resource. My goal is to become healthier and to reduce and hopefully stop taking BP medication for good. That would be a major accomplishment since I come from a long line of family with HBP - on both sides. So, here's to being more active, making new friends and a bigger support system and becoming healthier.
David Viscott: You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be.
Marvin Phillips: The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!
Eleanor Roosevelt: You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Ellen Degeneres: You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is.
