Read Chris Downie's book over the weekend. Just joined the site this morning. I have a second doctor appointment tomorrow since starting my "get healthy' program. My blood pressure meds were cut in half a few months ago.
Over 126 days my average BP is now 119/74 I am down 31 pounds in that same time frame (since 4-10-2012). I will be down 14 pounds since my last doctor visit (we will see if he notices). Needing to go from 231 to 155 to 165, makes 31 pounds less impressive than I thought it would be. Wish I had found this site sooner.
Just started using FitBit and find that pretty helpful. http://fitbit.com
I hope to one day be off all meds, but since a slight heart attack in 2006, I may not be able too. But would like to get away from statins (i.e. Lipitor) and Vasotec for HBP. The Metoprolol may be necessary...
Any rate exercising regularly and feeling better....
