100 lb. Club - Am Poor,..But gaining life and melting!!

Hello all,

I am poor, am a caregiver to my family...In my 42 years of reading every weight loss book, videos that did nothing for me. My life changed when I moved to a different neighborhood. I speak to real people/friends who had it rough, don't know anything about tech world. I believe in sharing which means caring.

I don't have a kitchen, don't cook and am eating the white stuff, real foods which am being served and sometimes have a second or 3rd meal. Don't want food go to waste! I recycled all weight loss books, gave most of my videos away and doing things for free. I purchased a jump rope from 99 cents store and am blessed that have have stairs weekly/daily for my workouts.

Am losing weight now and melting it off. I feel so good and and gaining life..This is a lifestyle change. Life is complex,stressful. Never know what life bumps ahead..just prepare overselves.

Keep on moving!! and stay positive!! :)

Im poor too girl! Im wearing the same walking shoes Ive had for close to 15 yrs now, really! I walk with a cd player walkman, I cant afford an ipod. I had to cancel my gym membership cause we couldnt afford it anymore ,so I just walk/run outside now. So I can really relate!

Im glad you sound a bit happier and enthusiastic!

Way to go!

We are poor too.. though we do have a kitchen and I cook, the foods I can afford to cook are what is cheap, which usually isn't what is good for you and definately if you are wanting to lose weight instead of gain it! We live in the middle of nowhere, on a winding mountain road which is traveled by people who drive way too fast for it.. so I won't walk it with my children.. I make videos work for me.. but I do the best I can with what I have and that is all any one of us can do! :hug:
