Around About the Way

I'm still hanging around. I need to update my weight logs. I'm only 2 pounds, if that, down from my last posted weight. I haven't been trying very hard but I've also stayed aware of my eating habits. I'm happy that the weight I lost has stayed off. Work is finally stable so I'm going to choose a gym in the next few weeks. I think that's been the missing piece. I was able to lose 25 pounds just changing my eating habits but exercise not only speeds things up but helps me keep the eating in check and motivates me over all.

Husband and I met with a financial planner. We both suck at money matters and waste a lot. This, plus not saving for retirement, meant we needed help. Something about getting financially fit, creating a plan, sticking to it, that feels a lot like the weight issue. I think I can use that same motivation to makeover both parts of my life.
