I've been reading your posts and I'm sad for you. The hardest thing I had to do when I started my journey was 'fixing' my mind. I had to tame the appetite in my head before I could make myself well. I loved junk food, but it was killing me. When I cut out the junk, I had no choice but to learn to love healthy food. And it worked!!! Canned veggies at walmart are 68 cents a can (store brand) and yes the store brands taste great.

I saw your post about eating well on a very low budget. My teammate, SIMPLEMAW, does a food stamp challenge once or twice a year and eats really well and usually comes in under budget. Here's a link to one of her blogs with even more links included:
Rule number one for frugality: No. Processed. Foods. Shop the weekly specials and the seasonal fruits and veggies and stay away from everything in a box. If you shop the perimeter of the store you'll find the healithiest and most filling foods.
If you're more than a few pounds overweight it is virtually guaranteed that you are very sensitive to carbs - which are both the cheapest and the most expensive foods in the grocery store!
