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...

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...
