Michelle had a good idea.

Take inventory of what is available and try and choose what to eat from that.
Perhaps get the other siblings on board by explaining healthier options?

Otherwise, the small portions, and count-down to day 22 will have to suffice

I would ask her to assign you chores around the house to earn 10/week and buy some of your own provisions. That could buy (watch for sales):
dozen eggs, 5 cans tuna, big bag greens, carrots (next to free with coupons), cucumbers , frozen broccoli cuts, etc.
I'd like to know the 10 healthiest food items you already have at home. Bananas? Fruit? Frozen veggies? Canned veggies? Butter, oil, cheese? Anything you spot.

Are you able to buy some healthier food options for yourself, and just have smaller portions of what your Mum gives you?

Apart from that, I wouldn't worry too much, after all, 21 days is the blink of an eye when you compare it to the lifetime that you will be able to please yourself.

You have 21 more days... Maybe eat small portions of what your Mom makes.

Ugh, so here's the thing. I'm going to be living at home for 21 more days before I move out and I'd like to be eating healthier. I was doing so well for a while and then I just kind of stopped. My mom has too feed the other two kids who both eat really unhealthy food. She won't buy me seperate food, because if she buys a bag of salad, I eat it that day because it gets yucky otherwise.

How do I try and be healthy while still living here so I can have the success that I need.
