How can poor people afford to eat right and lose weight?
I just turned 42 and in the last couple years I have gained 50 lbs. I weight 120 til I turned 30 then I weighed 140 when I turned 40 and now in the last two years I have went up 50 lbs and I absolutely HATE it. I quit smoking 3 months ago and am going to try to start walking when it gets warmer but I also want to try to start eating right but it is sooooo expensive to eat right. My husband needs to lose about 10 lbs and I need to lose at least 50 lbs. He also needs to eat right because he has had a heart attack and also he has high chlosterol but we only have one income at this time and the only thing I can buy after paying all the bills is all the cheap stuff that isn't good for you. We eat a lot of bread, potatoes, eggs, mac and cheese, hamburger, hot dogs, green beans, corn, pork chops and chicken. After my husband's heart attack in 2006 I tried to buy chicken, veggies and fruit but that stuff is sooooooo expensive. I went to the store one day and bought a bag of just fruit and veggies and it was almost $50 dollars...what we normally eat I could have got about 3 or 4 meals out of that much money.
Like I said earlier I am going to try to start walking when it gets warmer but that is going to be hard for me too because I have a real hard time breathing. I get out of breath VERY easy so that is why I want to try to focus on changing what I eat too.
Anyone have any good weigh loss ideas that are cheap or anything advice at all I would GREATLY appreciate it!!!!!!!!
