Thanks for the well deserved telling off!! I will go and see the doctor and face the music. At least then I will have a starting point. :-)

emoticon you had better face the music and go to the Doctor. You are putting your health and your life in danger by trying to cover it up. The faster you start on your journey to a healthy lifestyle, the better you will feel. emoticon

JAC, go back there might be medical issues that should be addressed. Do not feel bad about going back and getting your blood work done and your blood pressure.

You can usually go to most pharmacies and take your own blood pressure but if you have gained a lot of weight you really should be checked for other conditions, like cholesterol issues or even blood sugar issues. Start out KNOWING your numbers please. Knowing where they are can motivate you or please you. If you seriously want to losed the weight this is the place to be. Well done. Pat in Maine. emoticon

Jac,

emoticon you're here for the right reason, and I'm impressed that you fessed up online to EVERYBODY!!! Now that takes a real commitment, to do that.

I would suggest you go back to your doctor, so everything can be documented, even the extra pounds and possibly the HB. Then your doctor will see your commitment and how well you're coming down in both areas. He/She may ask how you're doing it and that would be a GREAT PLUG FOR SP!!! Your doctor can then direct his other patients to SP.

Be blessed,

Hello I am new here. I had my blood test measured back in March, I cant remember what it was off the top of my head ( I have it written down so will go and hunt it out later) but it was slightly high. Not high enough to go on pills but border line. However since then I have put on around 20 pounds so am only guessing that it will be even higher now. I am too embarrassed to go back and have it redone!!

So I am making a concerted effort to get my health back on track, get my weight down and get out of the obese category

I look forward to participating in this team
