Hi Beth and welcome to the team! Glad you took the time to introduce yourself. I had never had to deal with high blood pressure until about a year ago. I was at my heaviest weight ever and just about maxed out on stress. I too realized it was time for a lifestyle change. I wish you best of luck and know you will do great! Post anytime you need anything; this is a great group! beth

Hello everyone! Just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself! I'm a Christian, happily married for 19 yrs. (June 4th). I spent 13 yrs. in retail before leaving that field. I will be 43 yrs. old June 10th. I have been dealing with being overweight all my life.Due to a disability, it has always been a challenge. But, now I simply must make permanent changes in my life due to the diagnosis of High Blood Pressure. It started 2 yrs. ago with my physician and I just monitoring it. A few months ago, she finally decided I should be put on medication. I started out taking Lisoprel 10mgs/day. A few weeks later I went back to the Dr. and there had been only a slight change. So, she increased the dosage to 20mgs. I have taken steps to deal with my weight issues and hope to have it under control soon. In the meantime, I look forward to meeting all of you! Beth
