My name is Rita
I am a working woman, and widow who has met a wonderful man and second chance on life also. I have two children, Tommy , and Katie . He has 4 children, and 1 grandson 4yrs old, I now have a granddaughter born summer 2011, and expecting a grand baby boy in May 2013. I was a stay-at-home mom until my children were in high school and I wouldn't have traded those days for anything in the world, Treasured them they are precious. I retired from Washington University and work part time at Sam's Club and enjoying my grandchildren.
I lost my husband of 25 years to cancer , 4 months after he died my daughter at age 18 was diagnosed with colon cancer she is in remission but she goes every 8 weeks for treatment and will for the rest of her life. But she has such a positive attitude she hasn't had any sign of cancer since she has been 21 year old. In 2011 ,my best friend and wonderful man I am with was the diagnosed with tongue & throat cancer had surgery and 1/2 his tongue taken out and we are still deal with some things but we really enjoy our lives to the fullest we know not to let stress get the best of us and take every thing with a grain a salt. He also by the way lost his wife of 25 years to female cancer so we know what we feel at times.

Keep a check on your bp faithfully and keep taking the medicines do what your doctor says your bp will drop to adjust to your weight and I noticed you have lost 24 lbs so that could be the reason there may come a time where you may be able to decrease or get off some of the bp medicines. I have over time and I am working on it again I have been on some bp meds for sometime but with losing weight and eating right I am getting lower doses of my meds .Keep doing what you are doing and follow the doctors advice make sure to check you blood pressure daily especially before you go to bed eat right and exercise keep up the great work and you may be surprise that you may be able to get off some of you medicines in time or at least at a ower dosages. I know I have I still need the support to keepon track in losing weight and staying healthy. Writa any time. It is good to be able to talk to people and get support. Best of luck.

I have always had high blood pressure, Put the past 4 days it has dropped really low for me at my size and weight. I am used to having blood pressures like 150/82 and the past days its been 95/53. What can i do to keep it higher. I called my doctor and he says to keep an eye on it, but to also keep taking my bp meds.
