The Money Connection
If you're not counting calories, you're probably racking up debt
Financial guru Suze Orman makes a return visit to The Biggest Loser this week and tells the contestants, "You're not just made up of your health, you're made up of your wealth. And the two of them are totally connected."
Some people scratch their heads at the connection between their waistline and their checking account, but it's about mindfulness. As long as you're writing down what you eat, you're more aware of the calorie count. The Biggest Loser nutritionist Cheryl Forberg says that when contestants first meet with her, they usually underestimate how much they're eating. They just have no idea. And it's the same with the bank balance. If you don't write it down, you're probably going to come up short at the end of the month
Organizing your life is taking responsibility for it. And that applies to every phase from eating to exercise to keeping track of your finances.
