Last night my blood pressure hit way over hypertension. 170/100. 180 is a heart attack... I've gotten serious with diet and exercise many times, did great. Then gave up. Over and over again for years! I am only 22... never had blood pressure problems up until now. Hoping the scare will help me realize exactly how important this is.

I hope you will get well soon.
But do it step by step, don't over do it.

3 1/2 years ago I had a stroke, I weighed 240lbs. I was in a coma for 2 days. My blood pressure was 240 over 140. Now days I got it in check (123 over 79 and weigh 183lbs). That was a serious wake up call for me. Now I hit the gym on a regular basis and I'm careful with what I put in my body. The stroke was one of the best things that happened to me because now I take care of myself.
