Going into this year-long journal I stated one of my goals was to improve my health and specifically come off blood pressure medicine. To fully gauge my results, I’ve scheduled a complete physical with my physician on the 21st of this month. That’s when I intended to tell him the good news that my blood pressure has been in check for over 3 months (without the meds).
Blood pressure is in check!

Well, apparently, I spoiled the surprise by mentioning this in a blog posting several weeks ago. My physician told my wife last week that he has been reading my blog and is eager to see me for my physical in a couple weeks. I trust it’s to congratulate me on my blood pressure control rather than to fuss at me for not consulting with him before stopping the meds. I’ll report back on the results of the physical – minus any scolding I might receive.
I’m still striving to get the last five pounds gone before we wrap up this blog in a few weeks. Keep the encouragement coming.
