Weight-loss diet VS. Financial diet

No, my name is not “Lola Adams”. So the facebook thing may be more difficult than I thought. I want to remain anonymous… well because people are crazy and I’d prefer to not have an internet stalker. Not that I’m interesting enough to have a stalker, but you get the point. So back to the drawing board on that one.


In the mist of trying to get this blog thing together and work and being sick and trying make some extra money I have kinda put weight loss on the backburner. Good news though, I keeping steady at 205! I haven’t been eating bad, but I haven’t been going to the gym enough. One thing about me, I gain weight just by looking at food, so I have to work out regularly. I guess that is the norm though.

I have a theory about all this…

Excessive debt and being overweight have a direct correlation.

I mean think about it, you get stressed out because you owe all this money, so you eat. THEN you get stressed out about being fat so you “buy yourself a little something” (a trip to Barnes and Nobles, a bag or shoes or some other accessory- because clothes never fit right). Then you feel guilty about spending money so you are back in the refrigerator looking for a “friendly” little snack to soak up your troubles! It’s a vicious cycle! So how do you break it? Can you be on a weight-loss diet and a financial diet at the same time?? I am certainly trying; I’ll let you know what happens.

What do you think?


  1. You are so right about that. There has to be a connection there.

  2. Right!? Now I just have to figure out how to break the cycle!

  3. Dig. What you said in this post makes SO much sense. I want to say that Dr. Oz or some other Oprah touted doc said the same thing. I'm currently trying to lose both the weight & debt. I wish you luck on your journey! :-D

  4. Thank you for your comment and thanks for reading! Good luck to you too! Let me know if you come up with a magical cure all... I could use it! =-)

  5. Excellent website you have here, so much cool information!..
