Not been on SP much of late, mostly because been going though a world of a lot when it comes to what I can or can't eat and its been driving me a little nuts - that and some of the comments from fellow members was less then nice or understanding so thought it best to take a break from the drama.
At any rate, still not back fully and am still trying to get enough into me - weight loss right now is as it is (standing still and yo-yoing) the main issue is lack of funds (no work) thus a really tight budget and finding what I can eat on that budget. In short eating without Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Nuts, Coconut, Fish, Corn or Citrus. Yes it does leave a lot open in general, but on a budget that has to feed three adults its been a struggle and its also meant that I've gone down to one meal a day with if lucky a couple snacks. Which means yes I am starving most days, but functioning because I have no choice in the matter.
My daily deal mostly consists of...
Breakfast = Coffee with Dairy Free Whitener and if there are left overs from lunch/dinner (most of the time not that lucky)
Lunch = Meat with one or two frozen veggies or vegan salad with vinegar/oil dressing
Dinner = nothing, less there is extra in the house to allow for it or left overs from lunch
Snacks = Sodastream drink and all the water I can drink, if really lucky will be able to have a slice of dairy free gluten free bread might have jam on it but mostly its plain
My diabetes has been not happy with me and trying to keep it in check with the insulin hasn't been easy since I know part of the issue is lack of proper food. I'm shopping for the deals as possible so my mate and I tend to have Riblets couple times a week (because a pack of them is between 1 and 1.50 and tend to have enough meat on them for the two of us with some left over for later), and ground beef is another semi staple doing up our version of taco's (meat, spices, rice, lettuce - no shells).
Yes I've seen a dietion on the matter and she's still trying to figure out a "plan" that will work for me within the budget that there is and still be able to feed the other two adults in the family who don't have the food restrictions (so ya having to prepare meals on different surfaces, with different utensils - its becoming a little much).
Post in time, take care everyone

Well its been since christmas since I got any pop - as in actually bought a bottle of the stuff or a case of it. Now I use to buy a 12 pack when ever it was on sale, since for the past 4 weeks plus has been every week that its been on sale (half price or better). Yet I've not had the temptation to buy it, yes I've thought about doing so but I've not had the craving for it that I once did.
You see for Christmas my husband and I got the SodaStream for our family in the hope that it would actually cut down on our actual soda drinking in general - mostly to save cost then to actually save calories or for health reasons was the reason behind getting it, since we did the math the cost of it over buying pop itself came out cheaper.
At any rate, it was a failure to degrees, the person it was gotten for to help wont touch it and stand stand it on many levels so he's on his own for pop, as in he wont's it he has to buy it himself - which is only fair since we are paying out of our own pocket for the stuff for the SodaStream, instead of using the house funds like we once did.
In the start I wasn't a fan of the stream at all, I didn't like the taste of the stuff that came out of it and well I didn't think much of the flavourings you could get, for all that I love my ginger ale. But I do admit that given time and just going with it, I've just been drinking what I can make from the machine itself, making my own drinks outside of what the pre made stuff that they have on the market. But I've also since gotten into their Cola and Lemon/Lime syrups.
So thanks to the SodaStream I'm not drinking the pop that I once was, which is something I thought I'd never stop drinking for any reason other then a change in an extreme change in formula that would leave it undrinkable to me. I don't have any cravings for regular pop of any kind and I'm noticing that I don't mind the odd taste that the stuff has, even the fizzy water that it can make isn't that bad.
We'll see if we continue drinking just the stuff from the stream or if we do end up breaking the fast and getting regular pop.
