What a feeling of FREEDOM and HOPE!

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!

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,

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

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.
