Last November the gp agreed to monitor my bp (150/99) rather than put me straight on tablets advising if I could loose 10kg as a start with lifestyle changes I may be able to avoid them all together. I was determined come January after holidays etc this would be my aim. Since then I've had the flu twice, had an urgent operation and it's nearly April and I've lost only 2lb
Totally lacking in energy and motivation. Not sure if I'm getting depressed too but if my bp isn't enough of a motivation I don't know what is!
