I am off my bp meds (again).  I went to the doc appt this morning, and he gave me the Ok, to stay off them.  To monitor it well, eat healthy, maintain weight.

My goal is to loose another 10 lbs.  I am currently the highest BMI score for the "normal range".  So if I would loose another 10lbs, that would put me in the middle range.  I figure this would give me a good 'cushion' for maintianing good bp.  Plus my hope is if I got pregnant again, I could only gain 30 lbs and maybe this time, stay under range for my bp spiking and being put on bedrest!  ***crossing fingers***

Thanks ladies for all your advise, insight, knowledge!  I need a support system and still do!  I have to really focus on staying healthy now.  I think it is easy to get to this point and just let go again, because I met my goal.  But I really have to focus.

Thanks!!!  I thought it would be impossible!  But the DASH diet, and getting a normal BMI score was the secret for me.  Once I hit 'normal' range for my BMI my bp dropped.  I guess,  I am always going to have to be very lean to be able to stay off Bp meds.  Which is going to be a life long challenge!

Congratulations and keep up the good work.  Being consistent and maintaining your progress is the key.  It really is easy to forget what you've done.  Maintain the healthy mindset that you have.

Wow!  That is so awesome for you!  And a great inspiration for me!  I've been following the DASH diet for a short time and can already fit into a pair of jeans that I haven't worn in 3 years.  It's a great feeling.  Not sure I'm ready to be off meds yet though.

Keep up the great work - your New Year is off to a fab start!
