I am now older and fatter than I have ever been. My knees hurt and I generally feel bad all the time. I have Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and my feet swell. So why am I telling you this rather unpleasant truth about myself, you ask?
So, what to do? Now that I've made the decision to eat healthier, the first thing that came to my mind was that I need to eat what I have in the fridge and pantry so I don't waste money (and, by the way, it is cheaper to eat fattening food than not). Why am I making this confession? Uggg...why this crazy thinking? Because, when I put something in writing, it's harder for me to get into denial. Also, I have met wonderful people through this blog who have helped me more than they know with a variety of things going on in my life. I believe that there are some people who have this issue and can relate. I know that there are many of you out there who don't have this issue and I hope you realize how blessed you are. Please, if you've never had to struggle with excess weight and the recurring struggle, don't email me and say, "just cut back and go exercise". Anyone who says that has no idea what some of us go through.
