Had a doctors appointment today and got a shock to the system. My blood pressure was 157/104. Really!?! Now I know I havn't been doing all the right things all the time but on the otherhand, I have most of the time. I've quit smoking to the point where I only have 2-3 a day (used to be a pack a day gal easily). And I've lost over 10lbs, who knew.
Now have I been indulging in fast foods lately, yes, but for the most part my eating habits remain consistent.
I meet with my doctor again in about a week and a half. She wants to keep a watch on my blood pressure and to discuss my new lab results. Wish me luck folks. I feel I'm in for a bumpy ride but will do anything to not have to be put on some other kind of medication. Lord knows I'm taking enough as it is.
