Default 7 day accountability thread 12/09/2019-12/15/2019

I went with a friend to the emergency room where she was tested and treated for hypertension. They gave her the DASH diet to follow, along with a prescription for blood pressure medication. Up until then, she had been trying to self-treat with supplements, and her blood pressure had varied enough and was high enough to send her to the hospital. When we left the ER, she had said things like, 'I will eat a pomegranate I have at home because that is supposed to lower your blood pressure...' Food has its limits! Eating a particular food or taking a supplement is not going to be a cure for something seriously endangering your health. I wish she understood that.

IFing continues. The stress of the holidays continues. It's difficult to make big changes in the midst of all the preparations for the holidays.

Persistence!
