TIM. Like you I have high blood pressure (HBP), chronic back pain and am overweight. I can assure you you made a great choice by joining the Sparkpeople (SP). I'll suggest you start by getting to know the site by just clicking on the menu band - don't start with the TRACKERS - you need to have a plan aiming at concrete goals in order to start using the trackers. But you need to understand a lot of important issues before setting the proper goals and making a plan. START with ARTICLES and look up all the items to find the information considering your health problems. And VERY important - DON'T rush, take your time in getting well acquainted with the site but do this every day! Good luck!
Never say never

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
