In February I was laid off and spent most of February and March looking for work. Things were going well and I had lots of hits for jobs. I had three really good prospects and felt really good about getting an offer from one of them. During that time another employer offered me a job which meant I could start right away as I waited for one of the others. I went to work for this company on April 1st which was also my birthday. During the time I was out of work I did really good with losing weight. I lost 17 pounds while off by monitoring what I ate but entering it into my the app - My Fitness. While at work I was able to maintain the weight loss but what I neglected to do was continue writing down everything I ate. Now I am afraid to get back on the scale to see where my weight is.
On May 6th, the department I work for was told that they had lost their funding for the FAA project we were on. So once again I will be laid off by the end of the month. It has to do with the sequester. I have lost all motivation and am very depressed. I can't believe that for the first five months of this year I have worked two and am actively looking for work. I want so badly to lose 100 pounds. I also struggle with the exercise part of my weight loss. I used kettle bells and pulled out my shoulder. Then I slipped on wet tile in my bathroom and messed up my knees. I was using a cane for quite a while and am taking arthritis medication for them. I do walk my dogs for at leas 45 minutes everyday. But I am concerned it's not enough.
I just need to find my way back with my weight loss quest as well a good exercise program. I don't have the money to go to the gym so it needs to be something I can do at home. I desperately need something to go right for me, and losing weight right now is the only thing I feel I can control.
Any suggestions are welcome...
