"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
I was able to cut my BP meds from 40mg to 20mg by losing some weight. Now I read about normal, sometimes lower in the morning. I was so surprised at how much the extra weight was causing health problems. Many like by diabetic, just went away. Get on some of the forums, there are a lot of them. Set up you spark page, lose some weight, make some friends and have some fun.
Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my 2016 weight goals of 50 pounds.

Hi, I am a 56 yr young woman who is in need of losing weight. I know I am at an unhealthy weight but I cannot seem to lose it. I have been tracking my food intake and keep coming up short with the calories. This is not good as my body will not let go of anything. I know I need to eat more and not just veggies and fruits or eat more of those things. I currently take medication for high blood pressure but hope to lose enough weight and maybe not have to take them. I really like this site and hope to reach my goal of 35 lbs lose by July. I just finished training for a job which was taking up a lot of my time and I have not been exercising. Now that I have 6 hours of my time back I am going to get to it. I am encouraged by what others say on the site, it is very helpful.
