Default Blood Pressure - NSV

I went to the doctor today to see about my cold. The nurse took my blood pressure and she said it was good. I asked her what it was because three and a half months ago my regular doctor told me that my bp was medium high. The doc told me I had to lose weight because my cholesterol and bp was high.

Today I found out that my bp went from medium high at 140/70 to 122/80 which is healthy. I was pleased to hear that, and I vowed to get back on track and keep healthy. I want to keep my bp normal and I'll find out in few weeks about my cholesterol. I'm thinking I may not need to be put on cholesterol meds anymore. Just thought I'd share.

Anyone else have any healthy news after losing some weight?

Oh yeah! My BP went from 155/105 down to 106/60. And my blood glucose from 104 to 86. I don't know about cholesterol yet. I'm hoping for good news because mine was quite high.
