Fat Guy Skinny Wallet

Twitter: @FGSW

You may be wondering about the odd name for this website – allow me to explain! The two main points that I will write about on this site, both come from a lack of discipline in my life!

Fat Guy: I shouldn’t have to explain too much with this one…I’m a FAT GUY!!! At my heaviest in 2011, I was 288lbs!

Weight – 288 (Yes, I had to push in my stomach in order to see the scale)
Height – 5’6″
BMI (Body Mass Index) – 46.5 8-O

All of my medical tests come back normal, but I know it’s only a matter of time before this catches up with me. I’m not trying to make my wife a widow at 35 (unless the Lord wills it, of course)!

Skinny Wallet: Another big discipline concern for me is eating out! I don’t mean dining at 5-star restaurants, enjoying the finer things of life. I mean, I used to know the local chicken shack’s phone number by heart!

Good thing I don’t live near that place anymore! But, I still can eat my fair share of Wendy’s, Taco Bell, and pizza!

Last month we spent about $196 dining out! But, last year (2010) we spent…wait for it…$3,724 eating out!!!

Did I mention that I have over $100,000 in total debt? Probably not!

So my goal is to take all of this money that was wasted eating out, and apply it to debt (and possibly a new wardrobe)!
