Welcome Lisa, I'm sure you will find the support you need here at SP! I know how school can be a stressful barrier to healthy living but now that you have that behind you, you can begin this new journey with SparkFriends!!

Welcome Lisa, positive changes in your health will make a difference. In the past year my need for blood pressure medication has decreased by half. emoticon -Rose

IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?

When I eat crap, I feel like crap.

Welcome Lisa. I'm Ruth. Where in Washington do you live? I assume you do mean WA state and not DC. I live in WA also.

Anyway, this is a great team!! I learned so much from them when I decided to go veg last year. I got advice, encouragement, great recipe links and no one got irate when I slipped and ate meat once in a while.

I can understand changing eating habits for health reasons. I am on BP meds to control my BP to keep an aortic aneurysm from getting worse.

You said you want to get into yoga. Look into Tai-Chi also. It has controlled, slow movements that are really good for cardio exercises. As well as balance and stress levels.

emoticon Welcome, Lisa! Just walking about 20-30 minutes per day can bring your blood pressure down. Good luck in your quest toward good health!

Welcome, Lisa.
SP has much to offer so you will not feel isolated.
It has made the all important difference in my lifestyle change.

Hi I'm Lisa and I'm just giving this a shot for support purposes. I've just recently moved to Washington and don't have many who live close enough to walk with me. After being in school for the last 4 years I've gained so much weight that I am very uncomfortable and unhealthy; recently being put on two different BP meds and one heart pill. So now its time to match up my physical being w/ my emotional being. I am going to look into yoga as well as self defense classes like Karate as I have great hopes that they both teach breathing techniques and self control.
Anyway thats where I am and I am glad to be here.
