Hovering around my LIW, so thats good. I splurged a little last night, having two skinny cow ice cream sandwiches, so I wasn't sure what to expect, even with the 800 calories I burned working out yesterday. Its strange, but I can burn 800 calories, only take in 1500 calories, and still not see much of a loss. Do you find it the same way? I want to get tested in one of those bod pods to see how fast my metabolic rate is, since Im assuming its really slow...I always gain when Im over 1600 calories no matter how much exercise I did that day. And I still want to test the food combining principle for myself...gotta remember to do that.

Today I am attending the funeral of a friend's father. Well, actually, since I have a work meeting that I cannot get out of, I will be only going to the cemetary and the reception, but at least my husband will be at the mass. Her father passed away only 3 weeks after being diagnosed with gallbladder cancer. For me, I think I would prefer to live only a short time after a terminal diagnosis like that, since I wouldnt have to suffer as much. And my family wouldnt have to see you in such a horrible state for months on end. But I also know how hard it is to lose someone so quickly when you are not expecting it, and to not have time to say goodbye. My father died in 1999 at age 73-he decompensated very quickly due to a host of issues after not being sick once in my memory. I didnt make it home to see him before he passed, and maybe thats good because he didnt suffer long. But it was hard for me. I had lots of issues with my dad, and I never really felt that I had closure. And oh, the guilt of not being there...thats rough too.
