Great job! The good thing about the water pill is that it actually helps you loose weight. I have been battling high BP too an we share the desire to get off the meds. Mine has gone way down with Spark; I'm still on 2 pills but my blood pressure is normal. It's such a great feeling - keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon

Today I went to the Dr for my yearly physical. I found out that I lost 20 lbs in 6 weeks. I now weigh 349.2 lbs. Now this is according to my scale. According to the clinic scale I weigh in at 344.2 lbs. I found out I do have high blood pressure and got put on a water pill. This really bothers me to be on this pill but I will take it and continue to try for more weight loss so hopefully I will overcome this. Today's weigh in just goes to show me I can do this. I have lost weight before but just eventually gave up. I am going to take this high bp and use it to motivate me. I will overcome this and I am looking fwd to the 330s. I really want to push hard for 300 by January 1. Do you guys think this is possible? Even though it may not be possible it still will keep me going
