 Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer and I am a mother of 2. (a 5yr old son and a 7 mon old daughter) I joined this group hoping to find the extra support I need to loose some of these extra pounds... Its not easy! LoL. I was recently to the doctors to find out that I have high blood pressure. (23 and I have high blood pressure) The doc informs me that I should loose about 10 pounds to see if that makes a difference so my goal right now is 20. I hope to get to know as many people as I can! Hope that everyone is having a wonderful day :)

 As for my plans, I was recently told that I have high blood pressure and the doctor wants to me to loose 10 lbs to see if it makes a difference but if I gotta loose weight, might as well loose more. I try to exercise as much as I can. I usually go for walks 2- 3 times a day. I bought the DS personal walking trainer to watch how many steps I do take. I have it set for 5,000 a day and almost always make that unless the kids are acting up. As for dieting, more healthy things, cut out the sweets and soda. I should really cut tea out of my diet too but we will wait on that. That is the one thing I am not sure I cant give up. I usually eat two eggs every morning and then either a ham or turkey sandwich for lunch. I am hoping that walking and cutting back the calories will make enough of a difference. :)
