I am brand new to the site. I have been a martial arts instructor for 25 years. I have been in great shape despite genetic HBP and cholesterol. Now at 53 I have had 5 shoulder surgeries and 3 back surgeries. My ability to exsercise is now limited to walking. I come up with every excuse in the world not to go out and walk. It's a drag without a partner. I recently got a puppy who is now 10 months old. It's great to have the companionship, especially when it's time for the 2 mile walk. What a difference. I am now getting out much more frequently. With statans my cholesteral is 200 for the first time in my life! I am still having issues with HBP in spite of taking 3 different medications a day. I'm finally determined to get my body in control. I have to take it one day at a time or it's looks too daunting. ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Hello all,

I have come to this site many times only to accomplish nothing. I am approaching 50 fast and i am struggling with hypertension and being overweight. I relocated to north carolina from california. I joined the ymca but it gets boring without a buddy to push you. Anyone in the salisbury area that is wanting change? I love to walk, play tennis, water aerobics, vollyball, and badmittion. I do play all other sports as well. Feel free to reach out. I need to work on "commitment" to less salt, stricter eating habits, the usual. Hope to hear from someone soon.
