Don't get me wrong -- if you get down time from work, take it. I was off for more than the 5 days other people only get and I don't regret having taken more time. I was a bit frustrated that I couldn't do much as you always think of a million things you'd do if you had time. However, that feeling soon went away and I enjoyed relaxing, reading some good books, and enjoying some me time. It was a great time to be on IP as I had time to read past threads, save some good recipes etc.

Lisa: I can't even imagine 8 lbs off! We joked for awhile that I wanted to lose weight so badly that I was cutting body parts off, but mine was only 3 lbs and that was a lot. Yikes. No wonder you have back issues my friend!
