How are you doing on your Thrive journey?
I was so overweight and so broke when I first started looking at the Thrive Challenge stories. All those people doing really good things really caught my attention. I’ve lost 136 pounds and I’m able to keep putting money into savings! I keep a picture in my wallet of me at my heaviest and nobody believes it’s real. When everyone started noticing that I was losing weight, that’s when I knew I was really changing things.
What’s working for you?
I decided to go without buying a new car. I walk home from work. I’m eating cheaper and healthier. For instance, I stick with tuna for lunch. I’ve made it a point to save money on food. I don’t go out to eat. I’ve got quite a bit saved up now. Every time you do a little bit here and a little bit there, it gets to be a habit. You just make those little changes and Better Choices, and it’s great. Nothing else I’ve tried has been as motivating as Thrive.
