In many ways this past week has been uncomfortable... between the haze, heat, and humidity and exploring new paths to go down,
I have been maintaining about a 30 pound weight loss. While that is great... I still have nearly 100 pounds to go... so maintaining at this level ... well let's just say it's time to move forward.
I went to a presentation called "Surgical and Non-Surgical Treatments for Obesity." The options for long-term weight loss discussed were mainly the surgical options.(which are not for me) However the support offered to the surgical candidates just might be what I need to help me move forward. The great news is that my medications would be closely monitored. I thought the hospital based program was just for surgical candidates, but the surgeon told us that over the past two years there have been more non-surgical coming to the program.
This may be the additional tool that I need for my journey.
