Reclaiming My Life – Invest in Yourself

💵 $1850.00 PER MONTH! That’s right. That’s what I had to pay for health insurance for me and my 16 year old last year! One more time for those in the back of the room! $1850.00 PER MONTH!

_👩‍⚕️ I see a Rheumatologist, a Endocrinologist, and a family doctor. When my weight was out of control and my health was failing, I saw these doctors at least 4 times a year. Each visit was roughly 200 dollars and then blood work (every 6 weeks for Endo/every 12 weeks for Rheumatologist) -300.00 a pop. And semi-annual X-rays on my hands for a lot of money.

_ 💵 Even with my liquid gold health insurance policy, I still had co-pays and out of network costs.

_ 🏋️‍♀️As I learned how to change my eating to combat inflammation and lose weight, guess what? My health began to see dramatic improvement!

_🏋️‍♀️ Turns out I needed a trainer to teach me these things and I’ll have to say it was worth the investment. But I know not everyone can afford that expense which is why I try to educate on my account.

_🏋️‍♀️ My health has improved so much my Doctors have told me that I can see them every 6 months (instead of every 6 weeks). 🙌🙌 _🏋️‍♀️Because of this, I was able to select the least expensive plan for our health care — still 1350 a month but it’s saving me 6000.00 this year. The savings alone pays for my trainer and the rest goes in my retirement fund! 🙌 #itsawinwin, #thatsmymotivation, #nevergoingback, #myhealthisimportant, #myhealthisworthit, #takecareofyou, #wellnesswednesday, #rheumatoidarthritiswarrior, #rheumatoidarthritis, #autoimmunewarrior, #thankyouryan
