glad you are joining us on this journey to a healthy lifestyle. Losing weight can certainly help reduce the amount of meds that we have to take. It is a wonderful side bonus, lose weight, feel better and have to take less or no meds. Love it!

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
Welcome. I'm glad you decided to come back. Sorry to hear your blood pressure problems started so early in life. That makes it even more important that you keep it under control. High blood pressure over a long period of time can cause so many other health problems. Controlling it isn't usually too hard, but it takes being aware of what you're eating and how much exercise you're getting. The nutrition and fitness trackers here are excellent for that. Hope things go well for you.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

Good Morning! I am Tamara, 43, and just joined spark people (again) lastnight. I have had HBP since I was in my early 20's. At the time it was not due to my weight but it has gotten worse the more weight I gain and I am ready to get back to being healthy and fit. I look forward to getting to know you as we are on our journeys.
