Dear Christy
I feel for you that your job change means that you can't run anymore. You could consider skipping instead? All it takes is buying a skipping rope and doing your 30 or more minutes of skipping a day when you get a chance (perhaps after work before supper?). It is true that it is more difficult to lose weight without exercise because the latter uses up energy, stimulates your metabolism and also tends to 'lift' your mood, so make a plan as still do some kind of exercise every day.
