Thank you for sending me a message . I have hypertension and on medicine I had a heart attack a few years ago and that is when I join spark people and change not just losing weight but my life style and over the last year or so I starting putting it back on but I am working at it. I need all the support in staying healthy I have one group of ladies that I have been talking to for the last 3 or so year it might be 4 yrs now. they are very helpful. I had a stress-related heart attack but no damage this time but it wasn't any fun.
Any way thank you again, sonja for welcoming to the blood pressure team .
