The Promise Diet™ -- a Radical Approach to Permanent Weight Loss

Great blood pressure readings and long-term improvement

This week I gave blood one day and saw a doctor for my hurt foot on another, so i had my blood pressure taken twice by a medical professional. (I reguarly do my own at the machines in the pharmacies of Walmart and Harris Teeter.)

One time it was 110/64 and the other 112/73.

In the distant past I apparently had high blood pressure, because my body has shown some signs from it in dilated eye exams and an echo cardiogram. I actually don't know how high it got or how long it was high -- I literally went a decade without getting it checked or otherwise seeing a doctor, during a time I was quite obese -- my weight reached 326 at its max. (Not ever seeing a doctor for over a decade was a mistake, by the way, even if I felt good.)

Anyway, 20 months ago my blood pressure was in the 130s over 70 something and occasionally a bit over 140, especially in doctors' offices (white coat readings. anyone? :) I had fairly recently started eating right and losing weight. Since then I've seen it trickle down, so that now when I check it at Walmart it's typically in the one-teens over upper sixes. My pulse is often right around 50.

That's significant progress with no medication. That's another testimony to the power of PUBIMO Promises and the Promise Diet.

For further motivation, here's an entry about my significant cholesterol improvement.
