This weekend cost me 'a pound'. Well, actually, I am feeling a little down today. Not sure if my 'weight gain' has anything to do with it. I have a lot going on in my head that I just can't seem to put away. Honestly....I don't think my little set back is the true issue. I stayed on track this weekend, so it doesn't make any sense that my weight went up and I am sure it will correct itself.
The real problem is financial. Everyone's #1 problem! My husband's company decided to sell ALL their trucks(tractors) and put an end to that part of the company. They did, however, hire him to drive a boomtruck with hourly pay. Which is good, at least he still has a job! His hourly pay is gonna be about $7/hr less that what we currently need to pay our bills. I cannot work due to my disability so unlike in the past where I could help out...I am stuck.
I am very thankful that he remains employed but I am so very worried. This year has been very tight and we don't have anything to fall back on. On a good note, my husband is very happy to have set hours again. No more up at midnight, 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5 or 6am to start work! No more,' come home to eat, and shower', then back out again! Plus, he will be home every night. I just need to be extremely thrifty, especially with food (our greatest expense!) So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
