As you can see, this is an expensive and timely process. I was/am self-pay and have a 100 mile round trip to the facility. I can only pray this will be a motivating factor in keeping me on the program and help my new lifestyle to become a healthy habit. The holiday season was very hard and the best I could do was to maintain. Although I am disappointed I did not lose, I am resolved to begin afresh and have a good number for my 6 month recheck at the end of this month. I am feeling a lot more restriction with my 4th fill and hope my "sweet spot" will soon be reached. I also am resolved to do more exercise, but I still am not ready to make friends with that "dreadmill." I am keeping it around as a threat to myself if I do not step it up this month ;) Till later...
