There are certainly some costs in losing weight.
Food - even if you are doing it on your own plan, like me, the cost of buying better food can add up.
Gym Fees - Anywhere from 30-100 per month depending where you go
Time Costs - Making good meals and exercising takes away time from your schedule each day.
But the costs of staying overweight are pretty high, too...
Food - While the cost of groceries may be higher, dining out budgets are usually HIGHER! Why pay $15 for a plate of spaghetti at your favorite place, when you can eat a much healthier version at home for less than $2.00?
Clothes - Plus sized clothing can often cost a few dollars more than regular sized clothing (especially at Walmart where they so graciously put that on their signs (Plus sized $2 more!)
Household Items - Bath sheets cost more than regular towels as do King sized beds and sheets and blankets. Being bigger means bigger items which usually equates to more $$$$
Doctor bills: High blood pressure, cholesterol, Diabetes, aches and pains, heart conditions...all associated with being overweight...add the medications and you've got a pretty good sum!
So at first the costs might seem high to lose the weight, but when you look at the other side of it, they are higher to keep the weight. Since I'm all about saving money, I'm going for option A!
