It's Time to Fess Up!

Friday, January 07, 2011

We want to eat healthier, so I know some of us have cleaned out our pantry fridge & freezer. Well I'll admit I'm one of them. "Out of Sight, Out of Mind" is great way to stay on track but it's not reasonable on a tight budget to throw away non-diet food.
I took out all the food I am staying away from & put on bottom shelf of fridge & freezer and in right side of pantry. Instead of throwing it away, my thin healthy-as-an-ox husband will eat the cake, cookies, high fat soups, high-fructose corn syrup pasta sauce etc.
When we got paid, I cut out coupons & looked for sales in store ads. Bought Yoplait Light yogurt for 40 cents each, Healthy Choice & Lean Cuisine TV dinners for $1.49 each, lean steak for $1.99 lb, and veggies to make soups & salads.

I use powdered milk in my coffee to add a little protein & calcium, and Splenda plus Fiber for fiber in my coffee too. Egg beaters was on sale too! I love using coupons on sale stuff.

Progresso Soup was only 99cents. Bought the ones that were only 1 point on Weight Watchers. Turkey chili that's 94% fat free is low points as well. Note that on my side is vegetables, no sugar added fruit, and sugar0free Jello & pudding. Only whole wheat flour on my side too, lol.

It's a start to a healthy 2011!

    Thank you so much! I really need to start saving by not attending mettings, but I don't get out anywhere except Sundays for church. When summer comes, I can walk to my Weight Watcher's meetings too. It's only about 9-10 blocks away.I quit my cable TV that cost the same as my 4 meetings per month.
Hope your plans work out well. Please let me know how you are doing.

    Wow. Just came across your spark page. You have done a great job of organizing things. I'm going to start WW on my own. Cant afford to go. But I got their new cookbook and their points calculator to help me.
