Re: Could this new hypertension be postpartum related?

I had elevated bp late in my pregnancy, and then after delivering, I continued to have high bp. I had been on labetalol during pregnancy, so they kept me on that, but honestly that med didn't do anything with the pressures. They started to respond a lot better when we added hctz. I gradually weaned ...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Hang in there...I know what you mean. The holding steady part... I was down even more to 152 for like 4 days, and then dared to bake cookies for the first time in several weeks, and my weight was up to 154 again. I know I didn't actually gain 2 pounds from a few cookies, but still it is annoying and...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

lost another 1/2 lb--down to 154, which was one of my ultimate goals, as I am pretty happy at that number. I am going to keep going until the loss levels out--I figure at this slower rate I am getting close to the right number. I am hoping for 148/49 as my goal, so we will see! That makes a total of...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Good job on all of the fruit! I was eating more when I was tracking points since they have 0 points, and have found I eat less now, but I do still eat fruit. I love a lot of the summer fruits.... I am probably not the best person to ask for recipes because I am not a fancy cook, but one thing I have...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

I think your goal numbers definitely change after having a baby! Number one, your body changes anyway.... and pants that fit before at a certain weight do not always fit the same as before pregnancy--so that is one factor that made me realistic and less hard on myself about it. Secondly, sometimes w...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

So, last week I recorded 155 on my weigh in day, and although I have hit 154.5 on almost every day I did record that weight anyway, and that gave me a 1/2 lb loss. Today I knew my weight would be off because it is that time of the month, so I recorded the 154.5, since that is actually what I have be...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Did anyone's doc give them time limits on when they start working out again? My doc wants me to wait 2 more weeks before I can do some light walking. I'm finding even walking a lil a day is exhausting. I just got out of the hospital before memorial weekend. I guess I'm just eager to get started, be...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Good luck..hope your results are okay :-) I weigh in officially tomorrow, but last week I hit 154.5 a couple of times, and even again today after a weekend of some indulgences, so I am hoping it cooperates tomorrow for my weigh in day. I was relieved to finally post some good losses, because though ...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

Good luck figuring all of that out and hopefully finding a way to make it work. I think I have lived on a fairly low fiber diet for most of my life--ha ha :-) I weighed in at 155.5 again today but that was actually a good thing.... I never hit that weight again after last Tuesday so typically that m...

Re: Weight Loss Buddies - Spring 2012 4/10/12

That is great Laura! And glad your week went well too, Teresa! I think sometimes taking a break/doing things differently are kind of good for your body...shakes things up a little bit. I was excited because I posted a weight of 155.5 today, so down 1.5 lbs,.... I finally had a good Tuesday weigh in ...
