Weigh in

Sunday, March 12, 2017

First I want to say thank you to everyone for your kind comments on my last blog. I wanted to respond to you individually, but my phone isn't letting me leave comments on your spark pages. I appreciate your friendship and support so much. Now its been a month, and the weigh in wasn't pretty. I gained back 3 KGS, weighing now 87 or 191.4. I am not surprised, although its a little disheartening how fast it comes back. This last month has been about survival - eat what is available, or go hungry. And what is cheap and available is highly processed carbs. Not good for a sugar addicted diabetic! Payday is only a couple days away... I am trying so hard to tweak the budget so everything is taken care of - including me. I am reminding myself that I better spend a little extra now to eat well, rather than spend a fortune later when I develop serious diabetic complications.

    I presume you mean pay more money now for produce rather than highly processed carbs, rather than pay later with your health.

    I wish you the best. Where in Africa are you? How is the food situation?
