    I had the same thing happen 2 years ago. Doctor told me the best thing I could do was lose about 15 pounds right away, and that would help. I'm 5'9" and was almost 220 pounds (at 31 yrs. old)...now I'm still 5'9" (imagine that!!), and I'm weighing roughly 190 pounds +- (33 yrs). I feel much better, and the meds were taken away after I was around 205 or so and my BP was ok. For me cutting back on the soda intake, or switching to diet sodas did the trick. Now I just eat less

    That sounds encouraging. My problem is that I love to eat :-) And it seems like swimming make me hungry.
