Wish I could find a real hissing noise....that would reflect the wind deflating from my sails. I went to see my PCP today. She is worried about my body's ability to do the heavy duty exercise that is required for training for a mini, and still be able to eat enough calories to get my weight to stabilize out. Basically, she wonders if I can truly eat enough when factoring in my malabsorption. She gave me quite a bit to think about. I'm not quitting at all yet, but I do need to think about how to form a serious plan of attack.
I'm off to eastern Kentucky. :)
