Below are my vital signs for May and the first eight days of June. I measure and record two blood pressures every morning.. #1 is after I weigh. #2 is after three minutes of sitting still. Reading #2 should be closer to my real blood pressure.
My weight is consistently high around 256 to 258. I am sure that my blood pressure would come down if I lost weight. I would then have a much better chance at lasting 1503 more days and making that next milestone.
When Jackie passed away 9 and a half years ago I weighed 220 to 230 pounds. One time in 2009 I reached 218 pounds! I am carrying a good 30 pounds of excess baggage. I now squeeze into a 44 panta waist. My blood pressure was lower then also. It is time to shed some weight.
