Thank you Fishinghat as always you have replied so quickly.
I think I have about 50ish left after counting 230 out every night. I have gone back to 210 and will stay there for a while as this has frightened me again to drop.
I will keep to your plan of just 1 bead a week from then on.. I can wait another year I guess!!!
Does such a long taper help in the long run?? I guess everyone is different
