Hello,


I was never truly concerned about my blood pressure until yesterday's physical.

Thanks so much for posting, Idealsummerluv!! I'm glad you're here!


Let me see.... Your fairly active but have been told you need to lose some weight. (Ohhh, how I can relate!) Starting by cutting the sugars and carbs is a great idea. Like you, I have a horrible sweet tooth and one of the medications I take can cause one to crave sweets. It takes every ounce of willpower I have to not gobble up all the Christmas cookies I've been baking! So far, I have managed to lose 30 pounds, but I still have a way to go before I'm at a healthy weight. (Alot of mine is in my tummy, as well.)

Thanks for welcoming me.


I've managed to stay away from sweets since my doctor's visit.
