Money.... April 1, 2013 *187.0 lbs

Well, I had a tough week diet wise. I didn't loose weight, I actually gained a pound. I am not worried, because I have not had a BM for a few days. I have been nibbling a bit too much, and feeling a little too hungry. Last but not least, I have not exercised one bit.

I got laid off from my great paying job last June, and that set me back in sooo many ways. I started eating (gaining weight), smoking (again) and got depressed (obviously). I got another job right away (lot less pay), I went on EI to help with my money (still not enough), and cut back on everything (eating out, movies, books, clothes, food).

Since then... I quit smoking (yeah me), I went on a diet (yeah me) and worked through my depression (still ongoing). My EI is done, and I still do not have enough money. So now I have to cut even more out. Not sure what else I can cut out, but cut I will. All my bills can be trimmed. I can use my clothes line (summer), cut my heat (already doing that, but can go farther), electric cost (nope already down to nothing). Gas (park the car for the summer).

 I have decided to start walking to work. It is not very far from my house, so I am working on how to do that. It includes bringing a change of clothes/food/shoes/socks...I think I am going to leave a bag of essentials/socks/clothes/shoes at work in my locker. We have a great kitchen with a freezer, so I might bring a bunch of food to work. That way I dont have to carry my house to work everyday.

I am not upset about cutting back. It has to be done, and it will all help me with Fixing Me, and losing weight. It will be a challenge, the worst will be how to take care of my son. I am his taxi service, so he will have to walk/bike/long board to his girlfriends house. I think that will be great for him. Its to get him to places that are far away that will be a killer. Oh well, cant freak myself out yet.
