thought I'd update on my bp/weight issues. Well after being down in CA I have kicked the chocolate habit. I haven't had a symphony bar in 3 weeks![:)]thats seriously amazing. We will be hunting for a treadmill this weekend[:)]I am totally excited about that. Unfortunately I cannot avoid going on bp meds now. I had three different dr. appt's this week and my bp was 190/110, 140/104, 220/118, my pulse has stayed around 120. My dr put me on lisinopril today, I'll be starting it tonight. My bp was great up till about 6 weeks PP and has been rising swiftly in the past few weeks. I was trying to put off the meds by starting to change diet and exercise but my dr wasn't up for waiting any longer[:(] oh well. hopefully the meds will drop it down and then once my weight has dropped enough maybe I will be able to get rid of the meds, there's always hope isn't there? On a good note I did lose 10lbs over my trip[:D] though its probably all water weight and I was pretty sick the whole time, but I'll take weight loss in any form at this point[:D]LOL.
