Who has high blood pressure? This girl!

Yes, now I officially have a medical reason to lose weight. I know, I know. Technically, I've always had that reason, but since my last post sooooo long ago (or maybe around the time of my last post), my Dad has suffered numerous heart attacks, been declared disabled, and I have had my heart checked out. While my heart overall looks fine, I do have some thickening of the wall on the left side which is caused by high blood pressure.

Apparently, I've had high blood pressure for awhile now and not known it. Doctors orders: blood pressure medicine, lose weight, and eat healthy. Yes, I've know those last two for many years now. I mean, my baby is 3 and half years old. I weight about 10 lbs more than when I brought The Boy home from the hospital. So, yeah. Lose weight, eat healthy? Nothing new there.

The high blood pressure scares me. So, I am doing it this time (how many times have I said that?!?). Not doing it is no longer an option. Who's with me!?!?!?!
