On the health life road..

I awoke this morning with a renewed determination to get back on the path to my healthier lifestyle.  My band and I are at a standoff at the moment.  I am definitely not in the green zone, but the last few attempts at fills ended with reflux and subsequent unfills.  If this is as much help as I will get from my band then I will have to live with that, but I will be disappointed.  I have had everything checked and there is nothing  amiss as far as band placement and functioning.  I have an appointment tomorrow to try the tiniest of fills (.1) to give me some hunger relief, but this will be the LAST attempt.  If I end up with another unfill, I will raise the white flag and work with what I have, which is better than no help at all.


  After my morning cup of Jo and a bottle of water, I headed to the pool.  Afterwards, I came home, drank another bottle of water and headed to the gym to do some weight training.  A good start for the day/
