Ok. Lost some self control as cravings really bothered me the past two days. I will fully admit to eating for my emotions. Need to get this off my chest so hopefully I can get past it. Gained a pound in 2 days.

So lets talk about why I want to lose 33 lbs in 3 months. In 3 months, we will have paid off our last IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and Frozen Transfer that we attempted last year. It cost us about $14,000. Last year we did 8 artificial fertilization treatments and 4 assisted cycles. Then we went for IVF (3 weeks of injections, procedure to remove egg - painful and lots of stuff afterwards). That failed..Then we did a frozen cycle with the last two embryos we had left from that IVF cycle. That failed. All the hormones and treatments took it's toll on me physically and emotionally.

In 3 month's time, I want to start the process of IVF again. Losing weight can contribute to a more successful attempt. I made the decision to lose 33lbs because it seemed like a healthy amount for that amount of time.

As for eating emotions: Yesterday, we went to a birthday party of one of my good friend's children. We are invited all the time to our friend's children's parties. I felt very out of place. What was the point of being there..I had no children to watch and take care of. I didn't belong.

Yea..I know that I was there because I love the little girl whose was the birthday girl and I wanted to celebrate her milestone. I just couldn't shake the melancholy feeling. It still persists today but I am trying to shake myself of it.

Anyway..if you made it this far, thanks for reading. My gym partner couldn't make it to the gym with me, so I did it on my own. 30 minutes on the elliptical. I don't feel better but I am proud that I did work out despite it.
