Blood pressure at doctors office was 110/80

I saw my Doctor first thing in the morning yesterday, he is checking my BP every week now since I been off meds to make sure I am ok. My reading was 110/80 and he said it was great. I kind of thought the 80 was a little high but he said it was good enough to put me on phentermine to lose a little more weight. I went to the store later that day and it was 125/85. This is a total change for me. At the doctors office my bp is usually between 150/100 or 140/90, same with grocery stores. At home it's usually normal.

Now for the first time my bp seems to be pretty stable, the same at home as it is when I am out. I am just over the moon about this. I am not sure what changed in my life but I hope it continues. BP medication made my bp swing to extremes!
