I am a mother of 2 teens. I have been married to Frank for 18 1/2 years. I put my extra 40 lbs on when I quit smoking 3 years ago. I have always struggles with my weight, but that extra brought me up to the weight I was pregnant!
We are like most families, struggling to pay the mortgage, groceries (fresh fruit and veggies are costing more and more these days) & utilities. We are lucky as both of us are working full time. We even car pool as we work for the same company.
I have started to buy in bulk, as well as share packaging with my girlfriend. We also try to combine a meal when ever possible.
I have had to put the family on a budget, not to anyone's liking.
