Frugal Friday With Marsha--Lean Body Fat Wallet Book Review

If you have been reading along each Friday then you have seen the excerpts from chapters 7 and 10 that I have shared from this book.  Awesome, weren't they?
If you missed them, they are all linked at the bottom of this post.

Lean Body Fat Wallet  is written by Ellie Kay and Danna Demetre
Published by Thomas Nelson Dec. 10, 2013
ISBN: 9781400205530
Also available in ebook form.

Admittedly I am only up to chapter 5 of my own reading of the book.
I'm taking my time and taking in the wonderful information that this book provides.
I have pages marked that I have already shared with hubby, or will share with him.
I'm having a little trouble getting him 'on board' as he doesn't believe it can be possible what I've read to him so far.  Sure wish me luck there!   I fully believe that we can get ourselves out of this hole we are in.

We have gotten ourselves into a financial hole.  First buying this house and every 6 months the mortgage goes up.  Then he's gotten loans (not from a bank) to buy our vehicles.  Then he's gotten a couple of credit cards.
It's to the point where his paychecks don't cover the bills whereas they used to plus plenty left for groceries, gas in the vehicles, etc.
I'm guilty to from the money that I earn in that I have this computer from a rent to own place.  Ouch!

I find it wonderful that this book covers both health and wealth!!  No need to buy 2 books.  The principles in the book apply to both health and wealth.

Healthwise, I just need to eat better.  My teenager, I would like to see her lose weight.   I fully plan on paying attention to the eating habits as well as the money habits.

One of the first things the book starts by teaching you is about the 3 D's--Determine, Distract, and Delay.  Then there are the 5 important steps to design your sustainable lifestyle.
Throughout the book there are several 'quizzes' that will help determine where you are at and what you need to work on the most.

If you missed the excerpts that I have shared over the past 7 weeks, I highly encourage you to read them.  They are just a drop in the bucket to the 'wealth' of information and help this book will provide you.
I encourage you to buy a copy.  Even if you only glean one or two things from the book, it is well worth it.
