A Wrench in the Cheap Grocery Plan

I just returned from the nearest town to take my mother to an urgent care for gall bladder related pain.  Now she's booked for a HIDA scan on Thursday. 

Cheap food is fatty food.  Hotdogritos, mac and cheese, kielbasa, chicken thighs--this diet is killing her.  It's not great for our waistlines either.  My mom and I have reached our peak heavy weights once more.  I'm too scared to weigh myself.  Her weigh-in at the doctor was not good.

So, that's it.  Time to take drastic measures and forget about the budget.  I'm thinking of trying the 'Personal Trainer Diet' again, or something similar.  We'll see.

  1. Dieting's no fun, especially when a health scare prompts it. I'm really surprised how much volume I can cut back and really don't feel deprived, except when I want chocolate. Anyway, low carb (eggs, lean meats, nuts and salads) seems to work best for me. I'm sure you can find what works best for you both and your budget.
