If you can find a friend that is looking for a workout partner, that can help you both stay accountable. Cardio combined with good nutrition can help lower bp significantly, so I hope you keep trying new things 'till you find a good fit. Good luck!
I like walking just not that "speed walking" in other words, just regular walking. But I am going to try some of those tips you all gave out...TY!
I am going to try that dancing bit, but w/the curtains closed b/c no one wants to see this one dancing! lol! Oh, to dance like that Beyonce and no risk of hurting myself in the process and lose weight!
