Welcome Lilangel and good luck with your weight loss journey! I am on ramipril 2.5mcg daily. I have good and not so good days.

Lilangel, consider yourself welcomed! emoticon
I am on Lisinopril also and it works well for me. Even so, , I started walking or riding my recumbent bike 30 min a day 3X a week and both my diastolic and systolic blood pressure has dropped 10 points. If you don't already, you might want to consider adding exercise to your routine.

Don't decry just sitting exercising.
My friend has back/hip issues which prevent her standing for long periods so a standard exercise class would be a problem for her.
The class she goes to is called "Take a chair" and all the exercises are done while seated.
I went with her on my day off once thinking it would be a dawdle (I could easily manage a standard class!!!!) . Next day at work I could not move. Chins up and good luck with your journey

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I too put off getting healthy thinking of all the excess skin and wrinkles that would result from the weight loss. Then my 2 nephews came along and I realized I needed to get healthy for myself so that I could do things with them. It is a long slow road but I can tell a difference in my mobility. Hang in there!

Hi! I'm totally new to this site & seeking empathy & encouragement. I'm 66, newly retired, have some physical difficulties, and just finished 28 days following the book "The Fast Metabolism Diet" where I lost 15 pounds and now want to begin further healthy and sensible efforts. Arthritic knees and spine prohibit exercising to limited walking and seated exercises for the time being. I currently weigh 339 pounds and feel like "what's the use" because even if I lost a good pound quantity, I'm just going to be stuck with much excess skin. Okay, enough already, right? So, for what it's worth, I'm trying to stay positive and "here we go". Thank you folks!
