When my doctor told me I was on the watch list for hypertension, I assured her that I could lower my blood pressure w/o medication by losing weight in six months. As the due date loomed ahead of me, I had only 6 weeks left!
But after 5 days on the Attack Phase and one more week of Cruise Phase, I was 29 pounds lighter and my blood pressure was back to normal! Now I am off the watch list, walking daily and still losing weight.
