Wealth Goes / = Weight Goes /

August 7th, 2007 at 12:39 pm

I noticed something possibly related to my newfound budget: I have lost weight in the last week. Yes, just one week, but I do weigh myself almost every day, and there was a significant (3lb) drop since last week. I'm almost completely positive it's because I'm making an effort to eat homemade meals instead of dining out with my coworkers. My usual $2, 300 calorie frozen meal vs. $7 at the cafeteria for a plate of pasta, some bread and a diet soda (or up to $15 if we go offsite).

Also, last night when I got home from work, I had the last beer. Once finished, I did have the urge to run to the store to grab more beer (to my alcoholic defense, it's a $7.99 LIMITED EDITION Sam Adam's Cream Stout that I just LOVE...but I'm not going to do some crazy stockpile because knowing me, I'll be sick of it in a few months) and maybe some $3.99 ice cream. BUT in the spirit of saving, I got a glass of water. That's $12 passive savings, and what would have been an extra 400 calories right there!

    i must admit, i really enjoy a Beck's now and then. If i regularly eat Lean Cuisines for lunch, i will lose weight, too.

    I wish it was the same for me. I can only focus on one thing at a time. More I focus on money the more weight I gain. Which is ridiculous because I have never eaten better. I guess it is all in getting older - hehe. I see what you mean - logically I never eat out and we don't buy junk - eat much better. I just joined the gym which may help but THAT cost money - so it will mean I am poorer and leaner. Wink
    Definitely enjoy!
