Mid-Week Report

I'm not feeling good this week... not feeling very losing optimistic. I'm flat broke, waiting for my payroll to get processed... I'm owed for all of December and January... I'm stuck eating Top Ramen and Dollar Tree food this week - not the best when you're trying to lose weight.

To top off my week... I walked past my gym that I haven't been to in a few weeks... and it shut down for good January 29th! That totally bummed me. It's close to my house and was only $25.00 a month. I might check out the YMCA by my job... if they have showers and are open early morning I might be able to join there... I forgot to go by there today at lunch time. I'll do it Friday.

On the upside... my paycheck should be coming, I'm hoping Friday and then I'll have rent and grocery money again... YYYIIPPPEEE!!! I'm going to stock up on salad stuff. I'm going to write out a menu first, that's what I'm going to do it.

I have to find a new way to exercise until I find a gym... after Christmas I found a Tony Little Gazelle in the dumpster, brought it upstairs and it works... I guess I'll be using that for now. I still have to get my treadmill fixed.
Tomorrow's weigh-in, I'm just gonna go get it over with.

Don't get discouraged - I know it feels like it's a long road sometimes....

My fav exercise is jumping on my mini-trampoline, but if you're broke find a friend to go walking with, or try downloading some free yoga podcasts or stuff on youtube.

The way I lost weight - almost 10kgs so far and counting is by eating real, fresh food wherever possible. For me that was a salad with EVERY meal, fruit for snacks and then making fresh juices with my blender and juicer.

I didn't join a gym because I didn't want to spend the money!

You can download a free copy of my ebook from my site if you're interested - I explain a bit more. - not just for brides, anyone can benefit.

Good luck and keep blogging - it's really motivating for people to read your story!

Once a Model, Now a Waddle said...

Hi fellow bloggers!

Check out my blog!

It chronicles the life of a one-time model who now, 100 lbs heavier, is a waddle. “once a model, now a waddle”

I am a twenty-something, first-time-blogger. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Shopping in my closet is like going to the GAP– I have jeans from size 2 to size 16. My weight can fluctuate by 100 pounds. And because of this, I have been afforded the opportunity to live many types of lives over the past ten years. At my thinnest, I was model signed to a major agency in Miami. As I gained weight, I switched focus from my looks to my smarts. I graduated from law school and started working as an attorney. Now, 100 plus pounds heavier and a bona fide waddler, my memories of photo shoots and the glamorous life are a distant fog. Please join me on my journey from model to waddle and hopefully back again.
