    Sorry to hear about your blood pressure and skin cancer but bot are very treatable. I wanted to share with you what was a light bulb moment for me. I weigh in only once a month and I am down 37 lbs. and it is all because I read a very simple book, Michael Pollman "food rules". You can even google them and you can print the rules out and it only costs you the paper and ink. So basic and no counting, weighing or buying "special" foods. I found as I took the junk out of my diet I did not crave the junk anymore and the real food I am eating now I want more of it and it is all healthy. If you have any questions just e mail me and I will help you out. Good Luck.

    Good job on your success! I'm glad you made it to the doctor. Even though their news is scary, now you can do something about it. Go You!

    You're right about seeing the doctor for health reasons. Realized recently via doctor's checkup that, like you, I have a blood pressure issue. It motivated me to finally exercise regularly. My last BP reading was normal.

Are you sure the doctor told you the lesion on your face is cancerous? If so, you need to have your doctor immediately set you up with an oncologist.
