Is it just me or are food prices getting HIGHER??
I have to say, that with the gas prices on the rise, and the food prices slowly creeping up...I have begun to think about being more prepared for my family. So today, my husband and I (& kids lol) went to Costco, for a STOCKPILE trip lol I bought 50lbs of Flour, 25 lbs of Rice, 25 lbs of White Sugar, 25lbs of Brown Sugar, and a huge jug of Vinegar, Plus other things that were not really considered stock-up items lol. I thought at first my husband would think I was nuts.. haha but thankfully he was on board!! So my next project is to get some big containers and properly store all this STUFF! Have you noticed prices going up in the grocery stores? A few things I have noticed in the last 2 weeks...
Eggs - Up a dollar
Cheese - Up a dollar plus
Crisco Butter Shortening (My favorite) - I usually paid 3 dollars its up to 4.97 a can.
Those are just a few things... Are you getting your family prepared??? Next thing I need to do is stock up on water... and medicines ect.. You know its rather funny in a strange way..because if you would of told me a year ago that I would be doing this kind of thing.. I would of told you were NUTS! lol Oh brother, I just remembered that I neglected to buy Powdered Milk.. one thing I heard was a must have stockpile item (lol).
Anyhow.. this works for me now..and hopefully will work for me.. later down the road.. that's hoping I can properly seal all the containers lol

A little about me...
It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)
In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.
I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.
There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.
So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
