So. I ended up not losing that much weight, in spite of all of my good intentions. I pretty much stopped being able to afford to buy the stuff that was on my menu every week. I haven't stopped trying, I'm just not eating very much these days. Its probably not the best way to do this, but I'm at my wits end, and don't know what else to do anymore. I swrear there are days when I feel like I ought to be on ionamin or get something done like a lapband.. but you know what? Our insurance probably wouldn't cover any of it & I can't afford that either. What are you supposed to do when you can't seem to manage weight loss on your own, but can't afford to get help, either? Just give up? Starve? What?
