What Do You Know About High Blood Pressure?

I've always had high blood pressure... well, above 'normal' (which is 120/80)... The past few time's I've been to the doctor for various reasons, I've received letters: 'This is letting you know that you should schedule a follow up visit for your last BP reading'... I've always let it go, because usually, I'm stressed to the max when I go to the doc, so I've passed it off as that. Well when I went Monday, my BP was 150/100. SOOOO not good. I'm not obese, take relatively good care of myself, trying to quit smoking, eat pretty healthy,...

Why Are You Dieting?

I'm starting a diet called Game On. It's about better choices and being healthy in mind, body, and spirit. It's not some stupid fad diet. In it you are reinforced for eating veggies, lean meats, etc. and for getting 20 minutes of exercise per day, getting more sleep, etc. So... I have told some of my friends about it and I continue to get the same question. Why are you dieting? I may have have healthy body mass index, but I could lose 15 pounds and still have an average BMI. Not to mention that I need to begin to make healthier...

Seeking Moms with a Hyperthyroid

I was just wondering if a hyperthyroid makes you very irritable and very lazy, I also get the shakes in the morning, sometimes they're all day. I have no energy any more. And I can snap one minute and be fine the next. I really I'm having a hard time standing myself, I can only imagine how my husband and kids feel. I do have and appointment next Thursday with a specialist. Please let me know if this is in my mind, or does this cause these problems.

No Weight Gain

It has been a while since I have been on mamasource but I need as much advice as I can get now!! My son, almost 17 months, is not gaining weight. At his 12 month check up he was a little more than 19 lbs. At his 15 month check up he had not even gain a full lbs. His weight put him in 7th percentile. He was 8lbs 7oz at birth, so he should be around 24-26 lbs or so. The dr said that if he had not gained a full lbs at least by his 18th month check up they were going to start doing tests. Now i am at a loss. He eats, he snacks and between...

Diet for Weight Loss

I am curious to know what diet you have followed during weight loss and how much you have lost per week and also what kind of exercise routine did you stick to? I have hit a plateau and in the process of making changes to my exercise (adding strength exercise along with my usual cardio) and diet. I have already made big changes to my diet ever since I got in weight loss mode 2 months ago. From a carb heavy diet , I am now in reduced carb high protein diet. So I guess now I need to completely leave out bread from my diet which will be...

When to Exercise?

I am about 20 pounds overweight, due to having 3 kids and lack of self-control when it comes to eating. I really want to begin exercising. I start then stop, start then stop, but I can never get on a schedule. Now that school is out for the summer, it is going to make it even harder for me. My best time would be do exercise at night. BUT I hate to cut into the time with my hubby. I stay at home with my children, so walking up and down the street is not an option at this point. When do YOU exercise? Do you have any suggestions for me?
