I’ve never really had high blood pressure. When I was young and fit, it was on the low side. As I got older and fatter it did go higher. Last year, it had averaged 122/80 or so with a pulse rate of just under 80.
I had a routine appointment with my doctor last week. The nurse said my blood pressure was 80/60. I forgot to ask about pulse rate. I thought that number seemed wrong, so I went to the drug store and used the machine.
According to the machine it was 105/64 with a pulse rate of 59. Although this is a bit higher than at the doctor’s office, it is a bit more in line with what I thought it should be.
This is why I’m losing weight and eating healthier. I want to have a long and healthy life.
