Hi, I am Tanya Myers, I have five adult children and my husband and I have adopted 5 special needs children through foster care. I have had a weight problem most of my life. I know what to do, just putting it all into action is the tricky part. With a large family, we have to cut corners to fill everybody up with cheap meals like mac and cheese and spaghetti. Of course I put myself at the end of the budget so everyone elses needs are met. Stress and comfort food has put an extra 170 pounds on me. Two of my children are already showing signs of having a weight problem. We need to find ways to cut calories in everyday recipes and make better choices at the grocery store. I have started spending the money to make sure I have my low calorie foods on hand. We are all discussing what are healthy choices and I hope I can impact my children's lives while they are still young. I do not want them to suffer with obesity as I have.
