    Why do we have to struggle through our lives to be thin. Why not just accept ourselves as we are and eat right.

    I have no metabalism as I say. I suffer iron deficiency but that is a lifetime problem since the age of 4. My Vitamin D is low even taking the vitamin D pills.

    I try to walk as much as I can but my left leg bothers me so much. And I'm not as flexable as I wish I was.

    I had a hardboied egg for breakfast And a 1/2 of peanut butter sandwich for a snack Then I couldn't find anything to eat for lunch so I said screw it and ate one of my husbands candy bars.
    I'm not rich I can't afford all the right foods.
