Thanks Robin and Dmartz for the stress relief suggestions. Work is the main source of stress right now. My blood pressure was 165/105. The doctor stated it is not weight related but from stress. After 44 pounds lost, it continues to get higher than ever. He wants me to start BP meds, but I talked him into letting me try to find ways to relieve my stress for a month. If it does not go down, I will have to go on the meds. It runs in my family, too. My mom weighs 98 pounds and takes BP meds for high blood pressure.

Week goals:

1. Research five different ways to relieve stress: Yes Tai chi
Tai chi: A gentle way to fight stress - MayoClinic.com
2. Log in all food intake: Yes
3. Stay under 1,200 calories a day: Yes
4. Walk 5 out of the 7 days this week: Yes
5. Lose 2 pounds: Hopefully
