Maintained good BP for 2 weeks without Meds. Going to still monitor, as it is still slightly high some times, so I want to make sure it gets even better – but I am DONE with this goal. I AM MED FREE! 7 months ago

Keep walking! Keep eating apples and carrots and other good things! Yay, me – I’m doing it! No meds! Just eating healthy and doing a lot of walking! 8 months ago


Without meds. Diet and exercise are working. 8 months ago

kmom2468Blood Pressure good for giving blood

Still a little high, but low enough to qualify to give blood! 8 months ago

kmom2468A year and I STILL am not off of them

Last few weeks I’ve upped my exercise times, and it is really showing. Went back to tracking weight vs blood pressure on a spread sheet again, and that seems to be the best method for me. I like to see the trend lines on the graph. Something about being a business analyst, I think. Gotta chart those KPIs. :) 8 months ago

kmom2468BP in the green two days

And without PB meds. I haven’t lost much weight (after having gained it back during the move) – but I’ve been exercising a lot, and it is showing! Most days I still have to take a half a pill, but I’m getting more and more days where I need only a quarter or none! On my way! 19 months ago

kmom2468I DO really need my 1/2 pill :-(

I forgot to take my half pill one day, and my BP was definitely higher than with it. At the very highest end of “normal.” So, I will have to keep working on the weight and keep on the 1/2 pill for a bit longer. But at least it’s only 1/2 pill now and my BP wasn’t wildly into the red zone. 2 years ago

kmom2468Down to half a pill

Lost 10 lbs; bp looked good during my last doctor’s visit. He said to start using 1/2 pill and see how it goes. My home bp monitor says looking good!

Need to keep exercising and losing weight and keeping the salt out of my food. 2 years ago

kmom2468Nothing losing 30 lbs won't fix

I’m still in the relatively mild stage, so now is the time to act. I am so bad at remembering pills, so if I want to get rid of them, it’s time to pay for the sins of my youth and 1) eat right 2) exercise … and try to mellow my Type A personality out a bit more. :-) New Year. New Life. And we’re off and running! 2 years ago
