Well curly you can always join at anytime! Some time in is better than none rt?
[QUOTE=curlykristx;1727685]i have done well with drinking my water, switching frm soda to green tea and smaller portions all around.
other than that kids have been sick so exercise has been close to none,i know its terrible.
im also having an issue because ive been trying to watch my carbs but as a mom of 3 its hard to come up with meals that work for everyone and cooking something different for myself isnt really within my budget.
..dunno how to work it out.[/
How about instead of completely cutting them out of your diet how about focusing on portion control? You can prepare healthier yet tasty versions of the same meals (spaghetti squash or wheat pasta instead of regular pasta for example) for your family and just cut your normal portions in half. That way your still only cooking 1 meal, still eating the same thing as your family but just less of it.
Maybe you could also keep fruits, veggies, salad,etc around as a standby so in case you don't want what everyone else is having you always have a cheap healthy snack available for you as well as your family.
Besides its never too early to start having children make healthier food choices in a world full of fast food joints!
