I was without internet for about SIX WEEKS--and recently also having having the stress of a family member in the hospital-- and my numbers are all over the place right now. I have an appointment with my endo in two days, and I am NOT looking forward to the lab report! LOL

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes one mome

WELCOME, I had high BP , Type two diabetes and high cholesterol.
I am off medications for all except triglycerides.
I feel sure if I give up this Spark People site I will not have the self assurance to not go back to before. You can get to your goal but you must believe in your goal and make certain your eye is always on the goal.

It is always up to ourselves with the help from our friends along the way. Pat in MAINE

I have to agree with what everyone has already said. The more knowledge you have the better equipped you are to stay on track and fight back!!!

For me consistency in diet, exercise and this website has helped me tremendously to keep my BSs in control.

Look forward to getting to know you.

I also have both the diabetes and high blood pressure. I was on metformin for the diabetes and am on Lisinopril for the HBP, but the metformin was causing me a lot of problems with IBS so we are trying to get me off of it and just doing diet/exercise. Lately I have been reading a lot on diabetes control both in books and on this team, and learning more of what has helped others. It is a great place to learn of different experiences that could be of help.

Hello and welcome to Spark people. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes when I found Spark People, all of them.

Now I am off medications for all of those conditions thanks to Spark and reading the very good articles to help me understand my conditions.

I am diabetic and have high blood pressure. This is a great place to be. You chose the right web site. It has meant so much to me especially all the information on diabetes. I realize how important it is for me to count carbs and calories. I try to stay with the plan. Sometimes I fail but I'm not giving up. Best of luck and stay with it.

Put your heart into anything you do.
