For the last couple of years I have been trying unsuccessfully, to loose enough weight to get off of my blood pressure medications. Over the last 2 months I have lost 10% of my body weight and as a result my blood pressure has been within the normal range. I have been waiting for this to happen for so long that it was hard to believe it when I started seeing the new readings.
I am not only seeing the weight loss, but the most important benefit to myself and my body is a healthy blood pressure. I feel empowered at a whole new level because I have made the changes for a healthier body, and my body is responding.
I am so happy right now!!! I have prayed for this time in my life when I could overcome an even larger number than the one I see on the scale everyday. I have made an appointment with my doctor and I can't wait to show her the numbers. I look at my blood pressure logs every day and smile knowing that I had the strength and perserverence to change the way my body operates. I've only just begun this journey, but the benefits are amazing so far!!!
Stay strong, and keep fighting for success!!
