I've been to the doctors today and I have high blood pressure. I have to go get some blood tests to see what is causing it on Monday.. For the past 6/7 weeks I've been going to the gym and watching my diet but not lost any weight so thought I would get it checked out. At my gym induction my blood pressure was raised so I started monitoring it at home and it has gone up to 160/105 and lowest has been 138/94 so I thought it was time to get it checked out. I got high bloodpressure during all my 3 pregnancies ( which is usual) but haven't been on any medication for it.
I was hoping this new way if eating and exercise plan was going to reduce it but nothing changed YET !!
I've cut out carbs & sugar already so doing everything I'm supposed to do to help with high blood pressure and will carry on with the exercise for now but hopefully the blood tests will help to identify why Im struggling to lose weight & why my blood pressure is up !
Fingers crossed the weight will start to come off soon to help reduce the blood pressure x
