$$ Money is My Motivator $$
It just seems like everything in my life right now is revolving around money. The reason for that is my focus on getting out of debt by the end of 2015. Iím going to put these out there just to put things into perspective. I have $16,000 in credit card debt that I was ďawardedĒ with in the divorce; I owe $6,000 on a 401k loan that I took out to pay for my divorce. I bought a new truck to be able to haul my horses after the divorce was final & I currently owe $29,000 on it. I also owe $8,000 on a tractor.
Good news is I work two jobs & all my bills are current & paid as promised. Iím not behind on anything, which if I was still married; I donít believe that I would be able to say that. Yea, Iím working two jobs now, but honestly that is my choice; I could live paycheck-to-paycheck working one job, but I do not desire to live like that any more!
I have really been able to focus on saving money to pay off these bills. I must find a way to put that same focus on getting rid of my excess weight. I donít care to loose the weight because I never want to find myself overweight again, just like I never want to find myself in this much debt again.
I have made saving money a game; I have all kinds of ways that I save money. I am going to come up with a plan to do the same with my journey to reduce my weight. I am going to look at it like my debt. I have some ideas, but over the next couple of days I will come up with a plan that will reward my weight reduction efforts, while also rewarding my debt reduction efforts!
How do you keep yourself motivated to loose your excess weight?
