Since finally getting on bp meds about 8 years ago, my bp stays pretty close to normal.  For about 3 years my PCP just said "Watch what you eat  (never gave me a diet to follow),  try to lose weight", and monitor my blood pressure... It's been really good most of the time since then. I would just like to be able to get off the meds...

Nothing wrong with checking it.
I check mine and I love that my NP does to.

I understand that completely but I knew this will be something I do for Life...:smileyhappy:...
My NP was ALL excited about my bp until she realized I am on meds and taking them...:smileywink:...
