    I went to join a gym last night but they said i couldnt because my blood pressure was too high.
    Got to go to my doctors to get a note to say its ok to exercise!!! So not only was it embarrasing at the gym but i've now got to go to my snotty doctor to say i need a note from them because i'm too over weight.

    The people at the gym are doing their jobs by making sure that you are fit enough to exercise, take it as a positive thing that they aren't just taking your money knowing you might do yourself a mischief, and as long as the person didn't shout, laugh and point at you in front of the rest of the gym there is no need to be upset, I doubt you are the first overweight person to step foot in one and they will make you feel welcome and offer you some great advice if you need it.

    As for your doctor, I think you'll find they are going to be nothing but happy that you know you're over weight and that you are taking active steps to lose it and get healthier.

    Most of all remember how you'll feel once you have lost weight and you never have to feel embarrassed about it again!

    Think about restricting sodium and taking magnesium supplements if your BP is borderline high. It worked well for me! Doctor wanted to put me on medication, now I don't need it :)

    I'm glad to hear you've obviously chosen a gym that cares about the welfare of its members. Get your letter sorted and get started at the gym - bet you'll soon notice a difference in your bp

    And well done for taking the plunge - I love my gym....most of the time
