canning

Saturday, September 13, 2008

This week has been the worst for my weight loss ever!! I gained 5 pounds and have not been eating the way I should. You see ALL I HAVE DONE IS CAN. I love the fact that this winter we will have all kinds of veggies from our garden to eat but it is a lot of work and by the time I get done I do not want to cook so we have eaten a lot of take out and junk food. Ice cream chips because of the homemade salas, cream cheese and crackers to go with the hot pepper jelly etc.... Do you see my problem. My husband tells me in a joking way that it is my fault because I am such a good cook and I can so many nice things to eat. I can't help myself I love to can and made jams and jellies and I love to see my family eat what I make. I love this time of year but I also hate what it does to my waist line. Soon I will be working on grape jam, apple butter applesauce, apple crisps, and much more. I just hope I can make past the canning with out becoming a blimp.
On the bright side I may not be able to pay my heating bill this winter but MY FAMILY will eat good. HA HA emoticon If I can't beat it I can laugh about it.
Really when things slow down and the foods are not in site I know I will get back on tract and I will get to my goal. This is just a bump in the road and I am blessed that I am able to can all the wonderful fruits and veggies.
Thank you all for letting run on about this. emoticon

    I got some packaged Roast Beef last week and had two sandwiches and when I weighed I was up SIX AND A HALF POUNDS. I don't know what type of chemicals were in that beef, but it sure did me a number. In fact, I looked up the weight of one gallon of water and it is 8.34# so I know I've been holding water. I was back down 2 1/2# today, so I'm still having to deal with getting this off.
    ENJOY your canning. You are a doll to go to all that work and effort! You can "diet" after this project is done.

    I used to love to bake. I was gaining so much weight though I had to quit. You should be able to cook and can, just try to modify your recipes for a healthier version. I still eat jelly sometimes, I just buy the low sugar kind now.

    Yum - I know this is tough to do this but Yum think of the results you'll reap in the winter.

    Try to take a break and go out for a walk and this too will pass.
