Just been cleaning up some old stuff...found a photograph of myself 7 years ago before I split for Ex H ....can't belive how much I have aged...gone grey...certainly fatter and now don't have 2 pennies to rub together....(actually its I have minus hundreds at the end of each month). Ex now with OW ...10 years younger than me.... he's taking her on all the holidays etc that we had planned years ago. I suppose it's just a bad day....but feel really old and dowdy...can't afford gym...even going to the hairdresser is beyond my means at the moment. I just feel like he's shit coming up roses all the time.. I know I am jealous....fgs I just need to get on with it ...but it just gets me how far I have let myself go....and believe me he loves it (via kids...oh your mums not looking great is she?). Sick of this!

It's just a bad day, yes.

You've shed twelve stone of faithless wanker.

She might be going on sunny holidays but she's with someone she knows to be capable of infidelity.

flowers these are for you. I bet you don't look half as bad as you think you do. Just keep picturing the look on ex's face when he has spent all his money on OW and she dumps him for a younger version. He won't be feeling quite so smug then.

MrsHathawaysmile loved that about shedding the wanker!

Make 2017 about you then. It's hard but you can do it!

OP, if you really can't afford the hairdressers at the moment, go along to the nearest hairdressing college, you can get it cut, coloured and blow waved, either for free, or low cost , if you agree to being a supervised hair model.
Also, it's only natural to go through the emotions, that you are at the moment, but you're still young, you can lose weight, but best of all, you're free ! He who laughs last, laughs longest, springs to mind.😄🌺🍷

Sorry you're feeling low.

You can always go power walking/walking to keep fit. There are some cheap gyms as well. Puregym is one. Membership starts from £14.99 a month depending where you live. That includes the classes as well.

Sometimes hairdressing training colleges are looking for students to practice on (under supervision). The beauty trainees also do manicures and pedicures etc.

A lot also comes from positive thinking and picking yourself up.

Hi lovely

There are lots of YouTube exercise videos you can do in your living room. Google Joe wicks. He does fab short hiit sessions and you can follow his eating principles and lose weight (look up Facebook support pages).
