    Thank you for you. Somehow I was directed to your spark page.

    Wow - truly inspirational and also I have been concerned about my BP recently. My father passed away at 52 in 1975 from what the doctors termed terminal high blood pressure. No meds worked for him, he was slightly overweight, over salted his food, did not exercise and was stressing about his job.

    Good luck to you on your continued journey.

    Hi Sue,
    Thanks for your SparkMail. I can't get over your pretty page and all your pictures here...you have a beautiful home, family, and scenic spot to live in. We have a Class B motorhome, and love to travel and take pictures, too. I too am on Cholesterol and BP lowering meds, and guess what? -after losing 22 pounds since last July (I was actually 210 lbs at one time), my BP medication is reduced to half! My cholesterol is way low now, and I hope to be able to get off that med. in the furure. As for smoking...I think that is the best thing you did for your health...plus losing weight of course. My sister is a long-time smoker and although younger than me, is also overweight and has really intense BP lowering meds., and has cholesterol lowering meds. too, so she is less healthy overall. I worry about her...if only she could quit smoking.
    I wish you continued success on your journey to goal weight...you GO girl!
