Welcome to the team and here, you are free of judgement and embarrassement. We are all in similar shoes, so totally understand when one makes mistakes and messes up. You'll find plenty of support here, both for the nutrtition/health/weightloss end and debt. The dream sounded very nasty. Ugh. I hate when I have dreams like that too.

welcome, and as has been said here you are definately not alone. i had to file bankruptcy almost two years ago and i'm still trying to get from paycheck to paycheck. the amount we are paying the courts each two weeks and our normal bills is still weighing us down. good luck to you and there is so much to learn here. it is nice to know we are not alone in any of this, our weight loss or our money management. michelle.

Welcome to the team! I hear you about money. I just got out of debt recently but it took me a while. I finally met with a financial adviser who showed me how I could pay off my remaining 10K of debt by shifting funds I had. Now I'm desperately trying to not use our credit card at all (neither me or my husband carry it on us). We have a new baby, so we tend to spend more on dining out (much easier than cooking sometimes) and also on diapers, etc. I also set up a budget and account for everything I spend.
Welcome and I'm sure you will get lots of tips here!
