I came back to the team; as I feel it's an excellent way to feel good for the choices one makes within the confines of a small budget, as well as, dietary restrictions.

Daughter and I served tables at Mason's wedding reception for 5 hours last night. I was too exhausted to wake up in time to go to church this morning. We finally headed out the door at 1pm to walk a few blocks to bus stop to go to Mexican market for good produce deals and freshly made tortillas.

Big changes for you this week! WOW! They sound like positive changes?!! I wish you and your daughter all the best!

I love that you are making curtains out of the sheets...My mom did that for me when she was still living. I don't sew, so I would have no idea how to do it! BUT, sheet patterns are sometimes so fun, it's hard to believe they are just sheets! I know yours will turn out great! How refreshing to re do your home!

I am out of town this weekend, to visit by brother and dad, but I hope you have a fantastic weekend, and I look forward to hearing more updates on how things are progressing for you!

Since my autistic, mentally abusive husband finally moved out this week, I'm on a tighter budget. He's a very good employee, but has no idea what he says at home deeply affected my daughter.
Anyways, I'm feeling good today. we used the bus yesterday to go to a Mason's formal dinner. We walked a lot from bus stop to Mason's lodge and back to bus stop.
My daughter does not like walking but this is the push to get her to walk. It will help her anxiety & depression.
I am planning to completely re-do this house. Going to make curtains from our sheets and pillow cases. Clearing out 20 years of clutter.
Daughter & I are now living on $600 a month so I am applying for food stamps too.

Today I am off work! I have a couple of different appointments, but the rest of the day is mine! I am hoping for sunshine! emoticon I am going to take the dog for a walk at the local off leash dog trails if the sun prevails! She doesn't like to walk when it's cold out...of course, neither do i! emoticon

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Thanksgiving will be easy for daughter and I. We are eating alone. I am fixing a low carb pumpkin pie, low carb pecan pie, cauliflower-mash with gravy from drippings, low carb cranberry sauce, low carb green bean casserole and buttered broccoli.

I could use some support other than just my husband. He's great, but he's the only support I have. Every time I tell my family I'm trying to lose weight, they start showering me with cake and candy. So I haven't told them this time, and I'm feeling like quitting even though it's only been a couple weeks. Would someone please huddle with me?

Hi Jeff, Nice to meet you.
I'm Susie, I live in Southern California.
Are you type 1 or 2 Diabetic?
Being a diabetic you need to drastically reduce your carbs.
What do you typically eat there daily?
