The cost of being thin

I came across this article this morning and it just blew me away! It’s crazy to see how much people are willing to spend on pre-made foods designed to cut calories.

Personally, I’m a fan of the “do-it-your-darn-self” method. You’ll save money and have food you actually want to eat. And it’s easy, really. I’m not a classically-trained chef by any stretch of the imagination and I can whip up a few yummy dishes in the kitchen in no time flat. I know people are busy, y’all have jobs and stuffed schedules. But it only takes a few moments to prepare something that isn’t going to explode your calorie intake and destroy your wallet.

You do not have to be rich to lose weight! You can be totally broke. Like me!


When I started this blog in 2010, I had three children and a few pounds to lose.

Then I had THREE MORE CHILDREN. And I still have a few pounds to lose. It’s funny how life throws curve-balls at our curves.

I’d love for you to visit us at to see how we’re managing our six children and our goals for a healthier lifestyle.
