Another Goal Met - Blood Pressure
Tuesday, October 03, 2006
Today I went to the doctor for a follow up appointment. 5 weeks ago I went off my blood pressure medicine that I had been taking for several years. When I was diagnosed it was 155/105. Today my blood pressure was back to normal, lower than it had been even while on BP medicine, and I don't have to take anything now.
I credit SparkPeople with this accomplishment. If SP hadn't inspired me to exercise faithfully and eat healthily to start losing weight, I would not have been able to bring my blood pressure down to where I no longer need medication. I still have a way to go - another 30 lbs or so - but with this healthy enjoyable program I have no doubt that I will make it there.
