  • Hi, April, I'm April too! And I live in Indiana! :) I've got about 75lbs to lose and want to work for it! I'm in a gym and go three times a week.

    I totally relate to what you're going through!

    I'm 37 and in Joplin, MO so nowhere near Indiana really...but still Midwestern!

    I just wanna echo others who have been unemployed and losing weight. I was unemployed last March when I first joined MFP and for me the nervousness of not knowing how long my savings would need to last really helped me stay out of restaurants and keep me on the straight-and-narrow when it came to grocery shopping. Lots of Aldi trips with produce and bare minimum basics actually helped me kick this whole thing off :-)

    Minneapolis Minnesota here. I am new here myself. Just signed up today! I am going to lose 90 LBS by the end of August this year! I am going to get off my @ss and start living life again. I use to run and go to the gym twice a day "back in the day". Don't get me wrong. I have never been lazy, but what I do around the house just isn't enough. PLEASE, add me, anyone. I like to discuss issues and share ideas. Good luck on your adventure. I hope you are as pumped up as I am!! :smile:
  • I am in michigan and lost my job in feb of last year. I decided to lose my weight since I had no more excuses . I joined curves and did their Zumba . My first month I lost 1 lb but more inches and I felt better. The second month I lost 3 lbs. I started going more often up to 5 or even 6 days a week . I was still unemployed so why not . I lost 5 lbs the next month then 11 lbs . Wow !! Do it . Find something you like and just show up. ! Marlene

    I'm near Speedway, feel free to add me if you like I figure I'll be around for a while I have a long road ahead...
    Also, my diary is open to the public so feel free to look if you're so inclined. (not that it's anything special but so many are blocked/closed I find it interesting to look at others once in a while)
