Weighting through the Storm
By Friday, August 26 my local grocery store was wiped out!!! Irene had us buying up every loaf of bread, case of water, generators and even Ramen Noodles. It was no surprised to me that I received an email from one of my best friends on this Friday, but what was surprising was the text and tone of this email. She seemed a little panicked...not panicked about Irene but more so panicked about sticking to her diet while eating non-perishable foods. See me and this friend are weight talking, losing, gaining, eating, laughing and everything more to do with weight kind of friends. We talk about it all!!! From how fast we need to walk to lose 5 pounds in a week to how to keep your man turned on by the concept of "more curves the merrier." She keeps me motivated and I try to do the same for her. Well she had posed an excellent and quite mindboggling question. How were we going to stick to healthy options during Hurricane Irene? Upon first thought I had no clue what to say but after more thought I realized that not all non-perishable foods are loaded with fat, sugar, artificial flavors and more. She helped me that day…I went to the grocery store confident that there were better options then chips and dip and Little Debbie snack cakes. Every BIG girl needs a friend to talk it out with and on Friday, August 26, I was happy to have her!
