Which do you think is harder ...

(1) losing weight, or
(2) saving money?

That's a no-brainer for me. Losing weight is ten times easier for me than saving money.

It's not that I can't save money. It's that it takes so damn long.

Yesterday I had my transmission replaced. If you've ever had transmission work, you know how expensive that is, even without a full-blown replacement.

Fortunately, I had the money this time. Barely. But it was a big chunk out of my savings. It took me a long time to save that money. And now I'm stressed about what big unexpected expenditure might by lying in wait around the corner, ready to pounce before I can build my reserves back up.

I've never mastered the fine art of not worrying about money. I need to work on that. I'm not sure it can wait until I make a New Year's resolution out of it.

That's a tough one.
I'd say it's harder to save money.

Nope. Saving money is the easiest for me.

Stop stalling and bust out those cycling shorts!!

I think losing weight is hardest. I have tips on saving money that have worked for me over the past few years when medical bills were high and paychecks were low.

I have paid my bills and managed to put a few dollars back for emergencies. It's always nice to know I have some money if I have to stay at a hotel or eat out when hubby is in the hospital.

Losing weight is harder. At least for me.
