When it comes to money and weight, I have figured out that they have a similar yet opposite rule.
Weight is easy to gain and very difficult to lose.
Money is easy to spend, and very difficult to make.
This truth is very frustrating on both topics.
I can work very hard to lose a few pounds over the course of a month and then gain it all back within one bad weekend full of bad choices.
In a similar way, I can work hard all month to make my paycheck and then poof, most of it can be gone with one weekend spent on the road with hotels, restaurants, gas, etc...
Why is the good thing so hard to do while the bad thing is so easy to do?
