100 lb. Club - I made it to the 220s!

View Full Version : I made it to the 220s!

229, to be exact. . . :)

And I am FLOORED! I have had a really rough day. I had a not-so-little pity party about my infertility, which involved potato chips and chocolate chips. (Hmm. . it was a chip theme! :p) I didn't care about my snacking, but I did have really healthy (low-calorie) meals.

I couldn't believe it when I lost just a little bit of weight today, bringing me down to the 220s. I can't tell you how much I needed a little boost to my day.

I am trying so hard not to get down-and-out about all of my bloodwork and infertility problems, but it just sucks. I HATE that I turned to emotional eating again. I hate that!! But I am stronger than this. Tomorrow will be better. I will look for the blessings in my life, and in those around me. I will NOT focus on my shortcomings, but I will praise God for all that I DO have.

YEAH-- good for you. I am so sorry about your infertility problems and hope those will ease as you continue your weight loss. I am so excited that you have hit the 220's. That is a reason to celebrate!

congrats on making it to the 220's! I hope to join you one day. You made a great accomplishment which in its way proves how strong you are. Today just wasn't a good day. I hope everything starts to turn in your favor...and again congrats :)

:carrot: Yay for the 220's! Doesn't it feel great? As for the emotional eating - I feel you on that. It's tough, but at least you recognized what you did and know that tomorrow is a new day. I'm sorry to hear about the infertility issues though. That must be so rough. I wish I could give my fertility to woman who really want it. I have severe tokophobia (fear of pregnancy and childbirth) and you'd get so much more use out of it than whimpy little me.

Awesome job on the 220's!!

Try not to let the fertility stuff get to you. I know how stressful it can be from experience. But there are always options...for me, it was just a hormone that was off...for my SIL it took invetro...another friend had to adpot. Bottom line, there are ALWAYS options when you want to have a family. But being healthy for that family is up to you! And your doing it! Yahhh!!!
