Is losing weight harder than saving money?

January 1st, 2015 at 05:43 am

In answer to my own question, yes, most definitely. For me, losing weight is much, much harder than saving money.

So here's the ugly truth. I weighed myself this morning to set a starting point for my weight loss goal for 2015. It was worse than I thought.

Starting weight: 146 lbs.
Target weight: 130 lbs.
Weight loss goal: 16 lbs
Deadline: March 31, 2015

I guess it's been a FEW weeks since I last weighed myself. Geez. Could holiday goodies add an extra 6 lbs??

Any middle-aged woman out there will tell you that losing weight is very, very hard. There's something about approaching menopause that keeps the pounds sticking to you like butter.

Still, I should be able to lose 1.3 lbs. a week. If they can lose 10 lbs a week on The Biggest Loser, surely I can do this!

Happy New Year, everyone!

    Omgosh I think my weight loss goal is almost exactly the same! I am not sure if 16 pounds is too low or not. I got down to 141 in March of 2014 at my daughter's wedding and then have slowly gained weight. I will join you!

    I have much more to lose, and I would say it is also harder for me than saving money. Good luck! I'm sure I will find some inspiration from following your journey.

    Like CCF, I am WAY more up there in poundage needed to lose and I totally agree - saving money is SO much easier than losing weight. I think it's because money is more ... manageable? Whereas weight loss is so unpredictable - even if you do things "right" it doesn't mean that the weight will go ... whereas with money if you sock money away, the money will actually still be there and grow (barring emergencies.)

    I don't find losing to be as hard as keeping it off once you have. That is my biggest issue. My weight yo-yos and I am sick of it.
