That's so cool! You can get off them, I bet. I have avoided the 'family disease' thus far (everybody had died of coronary artery disease/ heart disease) and/or is on cholesterol lowering and BP meds. So far, I'm perfect (in that sense, I'd be happier with a lower body fat cos ya know, inside's taken care of, let's be HAWT! Anyway, one step at a time. Looks like you're getting some GREAT cardio!
my SparkPage is friends-only because I'm paranoid and boring, anyway
Don't know what diet you are following but the easiest and fastest way to get off blood pressure meds is to go on a low-carb, high-fat diet. This will also improve your lipid profile, including lowering your triglycerides and raising your HDL cholesterol. Best wishes, Birgit

Well I did something this Christmas that I never thought I would. After my daughter, wife and myself finished opening gifts, I geared up, and went for a 2 1/2 mile run. Took my German Shepard with me, and took my time because it was very slippery, but I did it. What a great feeling it is. I also have my Hospital visit on the 31st, and this is the first time since my surgery in 2003 that I am looking forward to it. Maybe my blood pressure meds will be reduced or eliminated! Will let you all know.
