Thanks again for the support. I just read your entire thread, and I replied. But what I got from it was that you are not too far off from getting there. Compared to a little over a month ago, huge difference!!! I think I said WOW at least 6 times while reading because of how fast you were able to taper and to keep to it. By the way WOW is like my version of saying "no freaking way" or "are you serious" LOL . I'm not sure I could have been as strong as you have been about sticking to your tapering. You are working while doing this which i can appreciate because I had to do the same. I am a salary-50 hour employee minimum so I had no time off either. I honestly feel that is best. I work in a very fast pace environment as well so on those bad days I didnt have time to really sit and think about how bad I felt.
Reading your thread was very inspiring and will definitely help me keep to it. ;-)
