This is less about weight loss, and more about health frustrations in general.

Earlier this year, I had to take about ten days off over the course of three months. This was understandably hard on my employer, and I nearly lost my job. After that, I worked my ass to make up for lost time, working at least ten extra hours a week, and they have been very happy with me, until today. I woke up with a horrible migraine from high blood pressure, I was throwing up and could hardly see, so my boss told me not to come in. His boss then sent me a nasty email about how terrible migraines are, and asking if I was starting another long illness, because then we'd have to discuss my future. I should mention that she has a habit of sending me stressful emails while I'm ill. She sent one while I was in the ER about how I was hitting my deductible in one day, and one when I was out with a burst ovarian cyst, that I was in danger of losing my job.

I can sympathize that they are trying to run a business, and being one man down is never good. I wish that she would wait until I get to work to talk to me about this. It's so stressful to try to relax and heal with these scary emails coming in.

End whiny vent.

Hit the weight loss wall, but don't think dropping my calorie goal is a good plan. I could definitely cut back on my alcohol intake, that's my new goal. I'm also going to add a gym day. I'm very lucky to have a great boyfriend who's also a great gym buddy.

I need to work on staying positive and not letting myself get stressed out, that's when I want to eat EVERYTHING.

Thanks for listening (reading)
