A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it and realizing it's not going to happen overnight.

Welcome. Sorry you ended up with high blood pressure, but it sounds like you've made a good start toward getting it under control. The idea is not so much giving things up as substituting things: fruit for sweets, veggies for fries, chicken and fish for red meat. Mrs. Dash is a good substitute for salt. I like lemonade or green tea instead of sodas, but sometimes I'll have a ginger ale or orange crush. It takes a while to get use to it, but considering it can get you off the medicine and save your life, it's worth it.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

"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."

Hello & Welcome to the team. I recently had a mini stroke with high blood pressure & low oxygen levels. Doctors told me fruits, veggies, exercise & water. Course they upped the blood pressure medicine and started me on an aspirin a day along with all regular inhailers & oxygen. Spark has an article on the Dash Diet that has some great information too. Best wishes to you as you travel this healthier living journey. emoticon

So I am new to the high blood pressure world. I recently went to the doctor with a head ache and had a very bad bp reading. I got put on a new medication that includes a diuretic. I don't like the idea of meds but I apparently need them. I also don't like going to the bathroom so often. And my diet restrictions are going to drive me crazy. I was well on my way to crazy before I couldn't have salt, soda, grease and fast food. I honestly don't know much about what I should do for the diet. I have been tracking my food. And I have not added any salt to any food and I have not had any soda or fast food for almost a week now. Just gotta stay strong and keep it up.
