well you've come to the right place. you've joined a great team who are here to help you in your health journey.

everyones chemistry is different. people who can eat anything and not gain weight have no concept of what we go through. so try this,


first throw out all the junk food in your house.

then Use the food tracker. input everything that goes into your mouth. stay within your calorie range. watch portion size, keep healthy snacks on hand. apple, celery, etc. exercise. you must burn more calories than you eat.

exercising is key. I hope this helps emoticon

My dr wanted me to have wt loss surgery, because of my high blood pressure and other health issues. I came to SP a yr ago. I have lost 34 lbs. and my blood pressure is down 7 pts. I think to be healthy this is the place to be and I am so happy I did not have the surgery. You are lucky to have found this site before medicine. Best of luck on this journey. Getting lots of Spark points is fun! emoticon emoticon Debbie

Welcome to the team! I'm glad you were given a choice. You can do it. You don't want to take med. if you can help it.

Welcome on the team. Dear GG, honestly I envy you for being so young and still having the opportunity to choose between controlling your BP in a natural way or by medication. Please grasp the opportunity and do whatever doc advises and what is necessary to change in your eating habits and general lifestyle in order to bring BP under control without the pills. Even though you have that family trend. Wish you success!

Never say never
