I was gone all day yesterday, but I hope you got some relief from your anxiety! I'm sorry that happened to you but it is one of life's curves we get thrown at us so we are more careful (and hubby). This too shall pass.

It's ok to be upset at the situation. It's not ok to be upset with people.
It is important to learn from our situations/mistakes & make plans to avoid them in the future.
Congrats on getting in a nice walk. I hope you'll take another if it helps you cope with your frustration. You are a resourceful individual and can turn to much healthier activities that will help you reach your goals rather than backsliding on your eating. You are worth so much more to us, your family & to yourself. Be Strong!!
It always helps me when I am upset to read my scriptures for about 20 minutes or so. They talk, advice, and comfort me. May God bless you and yours!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Ask yourself if any of this will matter in a month. Then calmly talk to yourself and come up with a way to calmly discuss the situation with your husband. If he didn't know, he doesn't deserve a tongue-lashing. Also think of how you would like to be treated if you made the error. Finally, take a deep breath and tell yourself that this too shall pass. Good luck. I'll be thinking of you.

So sorry this happened. I totally get that as recently my husband did something similiar. We had managed to save 6K for renos and he spent 9K. It will take a while to recover.

You know in your heart that its wrong to comfort yourself with food, otherwise you would not have turned to your SparkFamily for support. Just tell yourself that there is nothing that food will do to make you feel better in the long run. Its a temporary stuff down that makes you feel worse than you do now. I saw on your page that you lost nearly 2 1/2 pounds... remember that reward of stepping on the scale and that feeling that you got when you saw your hard work paying off?
Take a minute to go somewhere and decompress... I know this may be difficult, but for your sake and those around you, try to bring things into focus. You know where you are financially now... its sucks, but you do. Snapping at people will not help, and if you're like me, the guilt will eat you up and make you want to turn to food. Decompress and figure out a plan on where you need to go next.
You really are worth the success you've worked hard to obtain.

I went to the grocery store to get something (plus a water). I used some cash and I was going to use my debit for the rest. Come to find out that my account was overdrawn a significant amount. Needless to say, I was (am) pissed off. My husband was a little more naive to how much we actually had. I was more careful this time. Anyway, I walked home (2.13 miles round trip) and wondered what the hell happened. Maybe I need to do some more exercise to get rid of this anger and stuff I have. I don't want to snap at anyone today -- I already at my daughter for something extremely stupid. I need some encouraging words or something to keep me on track. Not sure how things are going to go today.
