Losing weight/debt takes work

May 29th, 2007 at 07:22 am

I know some of you are thinking, "Duh!" But as I was walking my 2 miles today, I was thinking about how much I don't like to work at exercising. I'd like to exercise, get fit and then never have to exercise again. Actually, I'd like to exercise for 1 week and have it work for me for the rest of my life. Smile

Financially speaking, I'd just like the debt to be gone *poof* (like I'd want the excess weight to be gone), but it doesn't work that way.

It takes WORK - daily - to chip away at the debt. It takes WORK - daily - to chip away at the extra pounds. The reward will all be worth it and will take a little work to maintain, but the REALLY HARD WORK is now.

    I have often thought this too, the amount of discipline it takes to live healthy is very analogous to the amount of discipline it takes to save and not overspend. We would all love a magic pill to just take once and have it done! Good going hanging in there Smile

    I think it's good (albeit frustrating) that it takes work to lose weight or debt. It's a journey. By losing weight you have to do one of two things (or perhaps both) eat less/differently and/or exercise more. With debt you have to change the way you spend by cutting back on things in order to repay the debt. These are valuable life changing lessons we learn. It takes 21 days to form new habits and these are good ones to learn so they should take time. Smile
