For the last few years I have been having some health issues involving my heart. Today after three years of hard work I had my last stress test. It is my last stress test because not only did I pass with no abnormalities, my blood pressure is now considered normal.

Just wanted to share this with the only internet community I genuinely care about.

I thought you was going to say it's my last stress test because of tragic reasons.

Good job, Jeremy.

Nice! Do you mind sharing with us what you did to get your stats to a normal healthy level? Drugs? Exercise? No drugs? Eating? Gaming?

Great news duder. Sounds like all your hard work has paid off. Kudos.

@thehbk: I started by cutting out all fast food. Then I moved on to cutting out bacon and other high sodium cured meats (as painful as it was). After that it was finding as many healthy meals as I could and learning how to cook them. Once I got the OK from the Doc I was able to start exercising.

The hardest part of the whole situation was living on a day to day without giving in to the constant deluge of fast food advertising. But after a while I started to be OK with going hungry for an extra hour or two and wait until I got home to cook a proper meal. It has been a long road but I could not be happier.

Also I was able to stay off the various drugs my Doc tried to prescribe me by promising that I was going to lose more and more weight each time I saw him. It worked.
