I am starting to find side effects of our decision.
For instance, I am finding a renewed resolve in my weight lost quest. Before John and I got married, I lost 30 pounds. I then got complacent and gained it all back. At the beginning of the summer, I started going to Weight Watcher meetings again.
Through all of the infertility issues and the monthly disappointments, I let my emotions get the better of my other goals, like losing weight. I would use food to make myself feel better, or I would get the mentality: What was the point? Failure in one aspect of my life made me make myself fail in others.
OK, that is melodramatic, but well, there you are.
So now that we have taken our future parenthood into our own hands, I feel like I have also turned a corner in other ways.
I managed to lost 3.6 pounds this week. The best since I started back in June.
