About the Dr. visit. My liver, kidney's and thyroid are perfect! So he wants me to loose a pound a week and in a month if I've done that then we'll just keep monitoring things. He thinks that if I can keep loosing weight that will fix the problem. But there is a chance that it won't affect it at all, so if after loosing a significant amount of weight I still have high blood pressure then we will look into prescriptions.
Now, on the one hand a pound a week doesn't sound all that hard. On the other hand it doesn't sound like enough, and yes, in this case there are three hands, on the other hand being consistent and making these changes permanently sounds too hard. But I hate the idea of being on blood pressure meds. So I'm trying. I haven't been back to the Dietitian, so I don't have any news about more potential weight loss. When I do, I will report it. I need to get back in the habit of daily exercise. I got out of it because the 10 days or so after Dr said no more cardio, I was very ill.... gardening doesn't count, at least not for me. So, here's to hoping I can reincorporate that into my daily routine!!
