Whoo Hoo! Great visit at the doctor's office today

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I began my SP journey in earnest last October 2012 after a visit to my primary care facility, a PA tried to double my BP med, put me on anti depressants and some other drugs! I weighed in that day @ 167 on their scale. I refused to go on these drugs and wasn't about to double my BP med. Today, I weighed in on their scale at 132.6 with a BP of 114/74. The PA I saw today reduced my already lowered BP med by taking me off the Hctz and leaving me on a 10mg maintenance dose of plain Lisinopil. It really felt good to have the med assistant who was overweight herself say "boy you've dropped a lot of weight since October". I can't tell you how proud I felt when that digital scale stopped at 132.6! It's awesome!
I owe this to the information and motivation I'd learned and gained from Spark People. Thank you Spark People emoticon
