Hello, My name is Elaine and I am joining in if you don't mind. My journey has a long ways to go. I started SP the last week of Dec and am really liking it here. There are so many encouraging people here and so upbeat. I struggle with the walking although have been doing pretty good. My Dr. prescribed some BP meds 10 mgs and so I am seeing my BP dropping. Also, I have watched my salt intake for quite sometime and have hopped to stay off meds. Anyway I was wondering if anyone has a problem with rapid pulse beat along with the BP? When I was on the treadmill mine went up to 134-142 and stayed up for quite awhile after I stopped the treadmill. Again today I brought in a case of water from the car and my pulse rate went skyrocketing again. My DR is aware and in fact I have an appointment tomorrow. Hope you are all doing well with the team encouragment here. Elaine

Hi, I just found this site a few days ago. I enrolled, and now we will see what happens! YEA! I am really trying to keep a positive outlook! I am exercising faithfully, and TRYING to add more fruit and veggies, and eating a portion control meal(s). That is my hardest part. I am female from Wyoming, and so far this month have lost 7 pounds! Have many more to go! I hope to lower my BP to get off pills, as well as my diabetes pills! That is my biggest goal!
