I'm really trying to stay away from binge eating right now. Today has been stressful and Nick is bringing me down with his bad mood. We realized just how out of money we are today. We wanted to see a movie, but we didn't even have enough money to get gas. Then we were going to go eat out on a gift card we got, but we couldn't do that because the card was 45 miles away in a different car. I'm trying to not be frustrated about that, but really, why was it in the car! I thought it was in Nick's wallet. And now Nick is in a horrible mood because today didn't go as planned. We are still going out to eat tonight since we have another gift card to a restaurant here. I'm just frustrated and I want to eat. I know that I don't need the food though. At least I have that knowledge. I blog more later when I'm not so frustrated.

    emoticon hope you're feeling better when you get this, my heart goes out to you, i hate being skint, and its so hard not to just eat when you're stressed, i do the same thing, and healthy food just doesnt work!!

    Have you tried meditation when you're stressed? Breathe in as deeply as you can then out again as slowly as you can 5-6 times, and consciously go over your body relaxing all your muscles starting at your toes and working your way all the way up to your head. you can do this in any position, and no one will even know you are doing it so u can do it in public.

    If you still wanna eat, try having a low cal hot chocolate drink, make a pint of it if needs be - itll prob still be less calories than any of my binges at any rate!

    hope this has helped, if all else fails, just know that there is always tomorrow, you can pick up and carry on when you're feeling better. Reading your blog, you've made some amazing changes and realisations, and i think you're doing better than you realise. Keep going hun, you'll get there in the end

    Try to just think about all things you are grateful for...it is an instant pick me up! Be grateful that you even HAVE a car! :) Be grateful you have a Nick (even if he's pissing you off today.) Be grateful that you have the knowledge that you have. Just realize that these are not the kinds of things to stress out over :)
