Thanks for reminding me why I started this journey. I was diagnosed as Pre-diabetic. I was exercising everyday and lost 29 pounds. Then my gym closed and summer came and blah, blah, blah. I used every excuse I could think of. Time to get back on track

Thank you for sharing your journey. You gave me the motivation to get going again. Report

Yours could be my story, except for me it was pre-diabetes rather than hyper-tension! A couple other differences, I was up 160, am still in the stressful job and not sure with meds I can drop.

I have managed to lose 40, so far.

Thanks for sharing. Report

Thank for the inspiration!! I'm just starting out, so reading about others helps alot to make me want, and know I can lose the weight. I put on the weight slowly, and didn't think it was a problem until tht nurse said, "200" pounds, and that is when I became afraid. I know it takes awhile to lose the pounds, so I don't expect to drop it in two months, I'm giving myself a year, at least, I think that is enough time to get where I'm going, thanks again!! Report

Thanks for sharing that your weight loss helped to lower blood pressure. My doctor told me that weight loss did not help reduce blood pressure.
