I have been dieting on and off for many years now, but just recently I feel like this is it. No more trying, I'm going to do it this time!
I have enough time to walk on the tread mill everyday and I joined a Tae Kwon Do class with some of my sons.
The biggest problem I have is that our budget isn't big enough for the diet I'm on (South Beach) and the way we normally eat. My kids won't eat salads and my husband can't do with out late night snacks.
We have 8 children and a niece living with us and it is just cheaper to buy processed food, and then of course I feel bad that I'm feeding them junk. We already make our own bread products and meals.
So how do you feed your families good healthy foods and still fall within your budget? What is your budget? How do you deal with times when there just isn't enough money for what the kids want?
