I defintely need to get my friend over here so she can check the accuracy of my cuff. It's nice to see the lower numbers, but it takes so long to get a reading that I dont know how accurate it is. like today, when I first took it, I was all psyched because it was awesome, then I realized that it said my pulse was 32... ummmm yeah. so I took it like 8 more times, most of which read errors, and then took the higher of the "normal" readings. I figure it's better to be safe than sorry.
I haven't been checking my BP every day. If you do, it should be done about the same time every day to get a true comparison. Keeping tabs is always a good idea if you have a reliable machine and are dealing with a high reading.

I was thinking there should a be a thread devoted to daily readings for the ones who like to take daily readings. I understand some people dont have a machine, and most people get their readings done at the docs, but I thought it would be a good way to keep track of things :)
So anyway, here's mine since I started taking it daily:
8/3 - 111/78 -- p 66 8/4 - 103/76 -- p 63 8/5 - 111/85 -- p 64 (a little high today, probably because I was fighting with my machine and it stressed me out lol) 8/6 - 117/80 -- P70 (Kids stressing me out and machine has issues. I need to learn to take my bp manually. ) 8/7 - 111/75 -- p 60
