    ok so i started my journey just after the new year and i started it well, joined a gym and eatin 3 meals a day and eating much healthier foods. was losing weight by about 2lb a week and then.... i lost my job, bills are adding up into debts i cant afford gym membership or to buy the good fresh healthy foods and im down. my weight has shot back up to what i started at and i just dont no what to do i feel so s**t its unreal.

    there is always something positive around the corner ;)

    if you like jogging then thats a simple thing to do in a local park/canal...or if your really brave (unlike me!) the street?

    you can do sit ups/push ups/squats in different variations, buy a pilates dvd for fantastic core strength, and this may sound silly, but some of my mates buy 2ltre bottles of pop and life them for biceps/triceps, another thing is to get some ankle weights?? this is brilliant exercise for your legs :D

    or get a skipping rope! :D:D:D

    where i live there aint really anywhere to run lol apart from around the garden, i use to love skipping as a child that could be something i will try. as for pressups iv never been able to do them :( unless on my knees and just using my arms. i am good with sit ups and i have a abdominal crunch machine thing.

    thank you very much for your replies another thing i do is take the dog to the nearest national park at weekends for a long walk its just a long drive to go there daily.

    use your stairs as a stepper, or keep runing up and down the stairs..if you.ve got a local leisure centre they only charge for each time you go.....my local one is only £4 a time.....you could go once a week or so.. or a class is about the same...i'm on benefits and am going to bum/tums/and thighs next week, and apparently will get a concessions discount cos on benefits!!!!
