I have to agree with you Sandra, losing weight is expensive but then I'm saving money in other areas as well. Prior to my weight loss journey I was buying my lunch, going out to dinner at least 5 nights a week, every weekend heading out with mates to catch up over drinks. i would go to starbucks at least 5 times a day to get my caffeine fix. Now I take my lunch and snacks to work. Have cut back on coffee and eat in most nights of the week and on weekends I don’t drink alcohol which has saved money.
Our grocery shopping has increased for the both of us we spend around $300 a week now compared to $150 we used to spend. But in the end it's still cheaper than what we used to pay to eat out at restaurants so I guess everything balances out. Our trolley is full of fruit and veg and a bit of meat. Meat doesn't seem to agree with me I feel all bloaty after I eat it so most of my meals are vego. I love nuts and they aren't cheap. We don't buy any processed food at all and the bottled water we buy (due to level 5 water restrictions).
As to exercise there is my gym membership, my group training sessions, my running shoes, gym clothing as well. My sports bras cost $90, I haven't had the need to replace them yet but my bottoms i have. I've had them for a month and have had to go down a size- i bought a pair of running tights and running shorts. I had to buy gloves for the gym because I was starting to get calluses on my hands from weight lifting. I've had to buy new undies as well since my old ones sagged, which was totally unattractive. I love bonds undies they are so comfy for everyday wear and I spent over $70 for a pair of cotton underwear
I can't wait until I have to buy new bras. I am so looking forward to that.
