to one of many homes for me, here in SparkPeople Land! It's sad to think about, sometimes, that we meet because we share an unhealthy health issue! But, on the brighter side, this is a team of men and women, who would love to see you reach your goal and beyond, and that includes ME! Yes, I did say "BEYOND!" The step you took, to get to SP, is the first step of your lifestyle change journey! I really didn't understand it at first, but I found that I have to eat around what my body does during the day. Now, this isn't a quick fix or anything of the sort. This is something you'll be doing the rest of your life, to stay healthier! Once you get into the groove of it, then it becomes second nature, and I can't say that it will always be smooth sailing, as we're human and even I have detours every once in a while!
If there is anything I can do for you, just HOLLER and I'll do the best I can to give you a hand up!

Hi all. I've been a member of SP for a while, but I just started checking out the community and forums.
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure last year. Other than a bought with preeclampsia during my second pregnancy, I'd never had an issue with blood pressure before. My dad recently passed due to several health issues, and realizing that my chances of dying early are increased has spurred me to being more proactive with regards to my health.
I'm 38, mom to 2 teenagers and one preteen. I play way too much video games and own too many books. I hope to get to know everyone here and support you on your journeys.
