Pam, Thanks for the encouraging words. 11lbs does sound a lil ridiculous within a weeks time, but I've hittin' the sauce pretty good to take the edge off when the Ibuprofen falls short.
I'm gonna head down to the gym and sign on the dotted line -Pity party is officially over
On a side note, I've been following Humphrey's recovery posts and hope he's doing well. It kills me when my animals are in pain and could only imagine what Humphrey has been going through.

Try not to get too caught up in the pity party, you do have some options. I usually gain a couple pounds after an injury, but when I'm in the right place mentally, I can usually adjust pretty quickly and not get too careless.
Stay positive and think of this as just a break (even if it was totally unplanned) from training. All atheletes have to take a break from time to time. You will come back stronger than ever!
