Default 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! ) 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.

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.

I can't wait until I can say I'm there (that's pretty much what I weighed in the early college years. )
