A long, long, time ago......

Hello Saving Advice Friends!

It has been a very long time since I updated my blog. But, I hope to start coming here daily with a few words about my financial life.
When I come here I pay more attention to my saving and spending wisely. I can't do it perfectly like so many of you seem to be able to do, so I think I felt a little intimidated by writing about my financial life here. But, after further review, I know I need whatever help I can get to pay more attention to my money.
So, hopefully, my blog will begin to grow again.
I have credit cards to pay off, a house that needs to be refinanced at a better rate, and savings accounts that needs to grow.
I have recently lost 25 pounds! So that goal has been reached. Now, on to the finances.
My short term goal is to get our travel trailer refinanced at a better rate or simply transfer the entire balance to a 0% for a year credit card. I don't have a working computer at home right now, so I will be posting on my blog from work and there is limited time for that.

Question?.... How do I update my sidebar?

Under 160 pounds. . .

February 5th, 2008 at 07:58 am

WOW!!!!! I went to weigh in this morning and I am under 160 pounds for the first time in years. I was so surprised and happy. Weight Watchers really has worked well for me. It is easy, if you just do what they say to do.
Yea me!

Update on weight loss

January 7th, 2008 at 01:37 pm

I kind of abandoned my blog mid way through the year last year, and I was trying to lose weight.
I finally started weight watchers at the end of Oct. and I have lost 10 pounds. I still have three weeks of prepaid weeks with WW, but I don't think I want to spend the money on it right now.
I find it pretty expensive and I am at a good weight now.
I know what to do now, if I will just do it on my own without the knowledge that I will be going to weigh-in on Tuesdays.
And the leader and other members do offer good ideas and support.
I had never done weight watchers meetings before and it worked for me.
I did it online one time, but I didn't do very well at it.
I would really like to lose about 10 more pounds, but that would be it.

I took off two days from work to get some things done at home. Keeping 3-year-old grandson leaves no time for concentrating on getting my income tax done.
I accomplished a lot in two days and feel less stressed about things.
I weighed 168.1 this morning, so I am down a little more. Yippee!

although I ate well yesterday and exercised a lot, I didn't lose any weight. Still weighed 168.6 this morning, but it (some loss) could show up tomorrow. I will have to try to keep it up this weekend, which is always difficult.

weight loss, and money

June 7th, 2007 at 06:53 am

This A.M. I am at 168.6, so I am down again today. I hope to maintain that loss and be down a little bit more tomorrow.
I only have about a month until the contest ends, and I talked to another contestant today and she has lost 6.7 lbs. I didn't think anyone had lost much, so I really am challenged now!
It is all friendly competition, but I'm a pretty competitive person, so this really motivates me to try to catch up to her.
I told her she better keep it up, because I was right on her heels. Ha!

Anyway, I need to add a little money to my challenge money, because I have been eating pimento cheese and crackers at my desk everyday for lunch, so I am adding another $12 today.

472.09 = old balance
484.09 = new balance

Losing weight, winning money

June 6th, 2007 at 08:24 am

Thanks to all who encouraged me on my last post about our biggest loser contest.
Today I am back down a couple of pounds.
I am going to post my weight here and hopefully, it will keep me encouraged to do more.

I started the contest at 171.4 lbs.
Today I was 169.3 lbs.
So I am making a little progress.

I don't think anyone else in the contest has really lost too much either, so maybe I do have a chance of winning the $100.
I know my DH would be proud of me and my kids.
I am going to work out at lunch again today.
