Went to see the doctor Monday my BP is moving in the right direction 135/79. My last visit was 160 over 94 so I'm glad it's improving with the help of the additional pill. I also lost 5 pounds. My doctor said all my additional numbers are excellent (kidney panel, cholesterol and blood sugar) I'm so excited. When I started this journey I was 240 pounds with a nasty cough with zero energy. My heart already started to show signs of enlargement due to my uncontrolled bp. Now almost 2 years later I'm starting to see the goal post. emoticon

HI, there is a thing called "white coat high blood pressure " and what it is is that your blood pressure goes up at the doctors because you are nervous, and anything you could do is if you are taking your blood pressure at home take it to the doctors to make sure the calibration is correct , hope this helps you emoticon

I've been on a different bp pill for a month now. Lostartin HZT. Before I was only on a water pill and then had the need to take a potassium pill also.

I had my Dr. appt for my blood pressure check today. In my own log it is great around 120/73 but at the doctor's it was 140/83 Shucks! But it was down 20 points from the last time I was there. No new instructions. Come back in 4 months. My potassium was fine without the extra pills I was taking before. So that is good. He said just do a little exercise. I laughed and told him I walk 6,200 steps a day and showed him my tracker.

I still have 7-10 lbs. to lose and will try real hard to do it.

LindaKay, You have already come a long way in recovery and you sound like you are continuing on and doing well.That was and is quite an experience and sudden change in your life to overcome. There are many people in Sparks with different problems as well as teams that deal with similar problems. I admire what you have already accomplished with hard work. I hope Sparks can help you a lot as you look around and see what might interest or help you. emoticon

I pray that you continue to improve. My husband had a cerebral bleed 2 years ago and he is continuing to improve. He was also diagnosed with cancer 10 months later.. God has a plan and and purpose and HE is healing him from the inside out

Take it one day at a time and keep believing that you are destined for God's healing power.

Working on some cardio and strength training today. Just a reminder to keep doing what you can, not just for now but for the future. Before my stroke 4 months ago I was walking a lot, doing some strength training, and going to water aerobics. Then, bam, out of the blue I was knocked cold and nearly died. I was doing what I was doing to the results then, but the docs and therapists say the reason I lived and am expected over time to make a full recovery is because of the shape I was in before my stroke, which I never thought about before.

I did eat within my calorie range yesterday and intend to do so today. Not always the best things, but baby steps and at least not tons of calories like times I've done. I walked 3 miles yesterday and today. I've been doing that for a couple of months but it is still so hard and I have to stop and rest frequently. For those that don't know me, I was doing so well, hiking, water aerobics, working, and doing other things. I just barely turned 59 last week. On Halloween I had a stroke with a brain bleed and spent almost 5 weeks in 3 different hospitals (one was only a few hours in my home town before they transferred me out) and then 2 months in rehab until insurance wouldn't pay more. I'm still fighting to get back and everything hurts so much. Working on my walking and the exercises I learned in physical, occupational, and speech therapies. But my eating has stunk and I've gained back about 20 lbs since then because of so much bed time and now staying with son and his family in another state. It came totally out of the blue that morning. But I am fighting back. In the hospital I had not much to do except think about what they would bring for the next meal as I was 6 hours from my hometown. I did have 2 wonderful people from a private team here who went to visit me that I had met online but not in person until then. Then on Nov 21 I was transferred from AZ hospital to the Dallas hospital that was closer to where my oldest son lives (Ft. Worth) and they has a strong therapy aspect too. It was inpatient and I was there until Dec 3rd. We had a menu there like a restaurant with all kinds of things to order to meals. It was the highlight of my day LOL. My eyes were way way off because of the brain bleed until the swelling went down and I got new glasses, so I couldn't even watch tv or read. Just listened to tv with my head covered when not in therapy (or eating!) Of course when I went to son's house I ate what they had. So now I'm working on eating some of what they have but also on my own things and keeping calories under control. Son works a lot, and frequently out of town. DIL also works a lot from home or wherever she can be reached on her cell, and a lot of time with her parents and sisters. I go with them sometimes, but am finding out more and more how to carve my own niche here. Things are so very much harder than they used to be but I've also been told by a few professionals that the best way for me to get better is to keep using the muscles and speech (it's not too bad but I can hear it) through exercise and walking to build the neurostransmitters again. So that's what I'm doing.
I realty got off on that, and didn't mean to. I just joined a week or so ago and I guess that's why I'm explaining myself. Anyway, I'm and working on eataing better, getting my veggies and fruits in, and doing exercise even if it is so much harder/different than before.
Good luck to all of you! One day, one moment at a time.

Linda

Doing well trying to get to my goal weight and exercising so I have a strong heart. I'm walking with Leslie Sansone DVDs, doing her March challenge, doing strength toning, and just being as active as I can. We do what we can to regain or keep our health. We DO have control over that. No excuses for me.

My BP is staying down in good numbers but I sure am having a time trying to get rid of 10 pounds! I am just not one that likes to exercise inside, i like to be outside walking with my dog. Oh well, keep on working on it.
I hope you gals are doing well. None of us know when something could happen to us. We do what we can and should and hope it is enuff.
Take care. emoticon

You are doing awesome even though you had a rocky start. You can do this! I had a stroke with a brain bleed on Halloween out of the blue. Had just had my annual physical a few months ago and other than needing to lose about 40 lbs and blood pressure being borderline there weren't any problems when that was done in August. Ended up spending almost 5 weeks in 3 hospitals and then 2 months of rehab before the ins for rehab ran out. Gained almost 20 lbs in all that time in hospital beds I need to lose plus the others. We can all help each other!

I want to welcome all the other new members to the team, my name is Ali and I suffered from a heart attack, the Cardiologist said, then last October I gained 20-30 pounds in 2-3 weeks.
My legs got so swollen that I could barely walk, getting in and out of the car was almost impossible.
My GP told me that I should go to the ER but I stubbornly didn't go because I was worried about the cost! Don't ever let this happen to you, when your DR suggests going to the ER, take their advice and go hang the cost! Your life could be at stake!
I went to see the same DR again a couple weeks later, this time she told me that tests showed heart problems. This time she was more assertive with me and insisted that I go to the ER!
My husband who was with me at the DR's office took me directly to the ER! They looked at my ashen color and admitted me directly to the hospital. When I was admitted, I had 20% heart function and weighed over 316 pounds!
The DR at the hospital told me I needed to lose over 100 pounds, because there was too much stress on my poor heart. I was in the hospital for over 4 days, I was placed on a low sodium food plan and large amount of Lasix, to flush my system from the blood in my body that my heart couldn't filter which had pooled in my legs, ankles and feet. When I got home I continued doing everything the Cardiologist told me to do, and lost 90 pounds. I am still on the Lasix, but down to 20 mg of Lasix from 80 mg daily.
During the holidays I got a little complacent and forgot what I needed to do and gained a little weight back. The DR told me this would happen, so I was slightly no too surprised when I got down to 40 mg, and l gained 5 pounds back. My weight would yo-yo back and forth between 227 and 231.8. Now that I'm using only 20mg daily my weight is hovering between 230 and 232. That is the highest weight so far and I am scared stiff about gaining all my weight back and putting additional stress on my heart.
I started SparkPeople about 3 weeks ago, the beginning of January. I love the program and have dived in with the enthusiasm that I had when I first got out of the hospital. The Cardiologist says I have been a model patient and refers to me as the incredible shrinking woman! I'm so happy that SparkPeople was introduced to me, I really do trust, and believe you can too, that we will be able to lose excess weight and help heal our health problems.
I feel really excited to join this group because other than this the heart health team, I can lean on this community for support and encouragement and I am here for this team also!

Keep in touch and good luck with your heart and BP issues, take care of yourselves!



Hi, hope you are having a great day! Be the "SPARK" in someone's life today!

I belong to a weight loss support group called TOPS and I've volunteered to do next week's program. We all take turns discussing or presenting some type of vital healthy information for the week. I have decided to do a presentation on the pistachio as Feb. 26th is National Pistachio Day. I came across these muffin recipes and I thought it looked pretty interesting. I'm going to make mini ones to share with the group.

Linda and Piggyway, Ii hope things get better and easier for you both. I am still walking on the bad knee that needs to be done along with skin allergies. I saw one post that asked, can you do it for one month?-- and want to try that in March, my b'day month, make a b'day present to me. It is never easy with food being so tied up with our emotions and life events, I stumble a lot but just get up and keep going, not every day is easy but I try to use it well.
Big snow storm supposed to begin soon, possibly up to 9 inches, i hope it will be less. I like to shovel to be outside and get exercise but this might be more than i can handle.
Hope everyone has a good day, just remembered i need to take my BP pill and could use a BP check as well. Georgine emoticon

Trying to get back on track. Walking and exercise pretty good but food is harder staying with my son/dil and there kids in a different state. I can walk a couple of places now but not much near me. They work long shifts or out of town for a few days at a time. No car over here yet and still restricted from driving because of the stroke a few months ago. I have to find a way to do better. I spent 5 weeks in hospitals to where the main interest was the next meal and I gained about 20 lbs since Halloween i need to lose. I can do this!

Now i am retired I am trying to get back to yoga but still having trouble getting organized. I am going to have to pick a time just for exercises. I tried slipping it in thru out the day but find I sometimes don't get to it at all. How did i manage everything and raise 4 kids??!! It's a mystery--but i was lots younger emoticon 31 below zero this morning!!

When I started last Sunday, I checked my blood pressure it was 135 over 100. I was not happy so i promised myself, and my husband I would start SP and check my blood pressure every Sunday from now on, emoticon and this morning it was 120 over 82 pulse 69 last Sunday pulse was 102. I am motivated by this number I feel very grateful and full of Faith. The race is not for the swift but for those who overcome Happy Sunday.

I try to consume 1 source of potassium every day. I also take CoQ10 to help regulate it. That does help. I can tell the difference when I lay off of it for a few days.
