Sounds strange, doesn’t it? But, you can lose and save. What you are losing is weight. What you are saving is money.
Here’s what we mean:
- If you lose weight, you will be cutting down on food. Let’s say you eat half your normal meal. You will be eating 183 dinners instead of 365. Now think what it costs to make a meal or eat a meal out. Savings!
- If you lose weight, you can be more active. You can walk more and save on gas, do lawn work and house cleaning and save paying for those services, and you can play more with your children instead of paying for games or paying for movie tickets.
- If you lose weight, you can save on your life insurance policy costs, between 10% and 40%. But, insurance companies do not usually change existing policy rates, so once you lose you may have to apply for a new policy with another company.
- If you lose weight, many employers have wellness benefits. Perhaps you get a reduction on health insurance costs out-of-pocket, a free annual pass to the gym, or even a bonus.
- If you lose weight, your salary could also improve. Some companies do not hire overweight people because of the health risks costs. Others use appearance and attitude to determine promotions.
- Last and best, if you lose weight, you can save on medical expenses over the years. The savings are usually anywhere from $2,200 to $5,300 annually. You will have fewer diseases, office visit copays, medication costs, and even better health insurance premium costs.
It’s great to lose weight; it makes you feel better about yourself. It’s also great to lose the extra costs that weight can burden you with.
