I have decided to weigh myself once a week, take my measurements once a month and track my blood pressure daily.
My focus is on getting healthy. I had always worked out and eaten mindfully.........until I got this new job. I guess I took my good health for granted. It was my normal life!
Now...
I can see such a huge difference in my overall well being by NOT doing these things.......
I keep telling myself that it took 2 years to get this bad.......it may take 2 years to get out.
Well now........1 year, 11 months and 2 weeks to go! lol

It might depend on how much you have to lose. I have over 100 pounds to lose. I saw improvement in my blood presure and glucose after twenty-five pound loss. Which made me happy because I could not see any change in the way I looked! All my clothes still fit, but they were loser.

It also may depend on what underlying conditions you may have. My doctor has me come in every three months.

Hello
I have just started making lifestyle changes in order to lower my BP #s. I want to set realistic goals and not get discouraged in what I know is a slow process. I would like to know how long before I will be able to tell that the effort I am making is working? I also would like to know .....at what point, if nothing seems to be changing, do I return to the doctor to see what else I can do?
This is all soooo new to me!
Thanks in advance for your help!
