Financial Planning vs Weight Loss
Friday, December 28, 2012
Controlling your spending and the discipline to lose weight have a lot in common. They both require denying yourself something today in order to have something tomorrow. They are both about controlling and redefining gratification. But there ARE differences.
With money, the sooner you start saving, the more you'll have more easily down the years. Start saving when you are 20 and you'll be in good shape by the time you are 65. At 30, you have to save more to get to the same place. If you wait until you are 40 or 50, the reduced years of compounding will require much greater sacrifice in order to reach retirement goals.
But with weight loss, YOU CAN START AT ANY TIME and still achieve the same results! There is no mathematical penalty. It is never too late! If you start saving for retirement today, you won't be ready in one year. If you start a weight loss plan today, you WILL be exactly where you want to be one short year from now.
You don't need to take admittance exams. You don't need to qualify. You don't need to be rich or famous. Goal weight is available to anyone who Just Does It One Day At A Time.
