Hi Priscilla! You can do this! I am part Native American so I am prone to diabetes and hypertension as well. My Mom and Grandma have high blood pressure and my Dad had a heart attack but he does marathons and triathlons now and is trying to be healthier. I first got high blood pressure when I was 23 during pregnancy and I still have it! I'm just focusing on making healthy choices when I eat. That is the biggest battle for me is the eating. I have no problem exercising, I enjoy it. Are you tracking what you eat? Have a great day emoticon

Hi Priscilla!

My name is Bonnie. I've been on this site before but had trouble finding an active team. This team looks great! I have only been having trouble with my BP and heart failure issues recently. Well, I was born with heart issues. I'm guessing that the new cardiologists don't know what to think of me. I've been feeling very down about the future and need to get up and do what I know will work to help me feel fitter and healthier.

Don't be discouraged....You CAN do it. I lost 62 pounds a few years back. Now I've let close to 30 of them creep back on. That's NOT helping my BP.

So....I'm starting back on the DASH diet, started lifting light weights, and plan to get in some cardio. I've walked 10 minutes and plan to do more throughout the day. Let's do this thing together.

I can do this TODAY.

Hello Everyone! My name is Priscilla. I am overweight, I am tired and I need a change. When I signed up for this site, once I got in, I was very intimidated and overwhelmed. It is far more exciting looking than I expected. But I am like a fish in water. I am currently, diabetic, overweight, with high BP. Low Cholesterol but still had a heart attack at 36 and an Angioplasty at 38. For a young African American female that starts a host of other illnesses that could occur and I want to be here for my family. I am 53 now so the Lord is still giving me an opportunity to get it right. i'm nervous, need to lose a lot of weight, but I'm ready. I hope to hear from others who will encourage! Thanks.
