Stress and Binge Eating

I've been doing all of the above the past few days and I'm over it as of right now.  I feel bloated, tired, sick, and miserable.  I don't know how people manage to overeat all the time.  3 days of eating whatever, whenever, and as much as I want  has made me almost comatose.  Yesterday I WAS comatose.  I ate fried okra and slept nearly 15 hours.  Carbs and my body simply do not get along at all.  I have to pick one of two choices, condition myself to eat carbs again which will result in weight gain again, or condition myself to stay far far far away from most carbs.  The exception being whole grains which don't seem to bother me too much.  Bleached, white cornmeal, which was the coating on the okra, sends me to sleep for a long long time.  I don't like that. So I have made the decision.  No more carbs.

I'm stressed because even after my husband's check was deposited, the mortgage payment came out, the electric bill came out, groceries and gas came out and there was less than 20 dollars left to do us for TWO WEEKS!  My solution was to eat.  I don't normally have that kind of reaction.  I usually dig in and live frugally as possible.  My friend LeAnn used to say I pinched pennies so hard ol' Abe begged and cried for mercy.

I guess ol' Abe has been getting his revenge.  I don't have a penny to my name, or checking account for that matter.  But is that a reason/excuse to wreck/sabotage my weight loss goals?  No.  It's just an excuse. and here I am in the NO EXCUSES Zone.

I have been my own worst enemy the past 3 days.  Bad Bad me.
