I went to the doctor yesterday for blood work and was told that my blood pressure was really high. How bad was it?? 140/100!! I have never had high blood pressure. My blood pressure did get a little high towards the end of my pregnancy with Dragon. I was induced because of it. It continued to get higher as my labor progressed and that was a concern.

I need to go back to the doctor in 2 weeks to get the results of my blood work. I am a little bit worried, I have a family history of high blood pressure and heart disease. I am almost certain that I will go on some sort of medicine for either my hbp OR my weight. Yes I am overweight and I know it. I just cannot seem to find the time in the day when I can exercise. But I will be making a better effort of it from now on.

I did some research and found out that if I lost only 15lbs, ate a low fat diet(cut back on the cheese & mayo), and cut back on the salt, I could lower my blood pressure to normal. So starting tomorrow I will be doing a couple of things different. I will be tracking my calories again and adding exercise back into my day. I will also be eating more vegetarian foods.

I just want to be around when my kids have kids.
