Good job scout24! Regular exercise is something that is definitely missing in my preps. It is something that I need to get going. I'd wager that with dropping 25 pounds, with exercise, that you'll be able to get off of those meds.
Losing weight, regular exercise, and eating right are all great lifestyle choices to improve health but rx’s for chronic ailments for middle age or older people are highly effective for lengthening lifespan even if they come with some side effects. It’s pretty unlikely to ever get off of them, and it’s good to remember that we’re lucky to have these drugs. Of course, they can be expensive and some people aren’t the best patients so to each his own.
