I was living in total terror of anything financial. By the end of June 2009 I had generated thousands of dollars in overdraft fees and lost thousands of dollars in expired unfiled medical insurance claims. And I had accumulated $40,000 in debt.
In desperation I joined Debtors Anonymous in July '09. Since then I have neither incurred any overdraft fees nor have I missed any insurance claims. Working DA's 12-Step program I have learned how to live within my means one day-at-a-time.

This has probably been said but you *NEED* to create a support network. Family, friends, coworkers. Or if you are as isolated as I was, look online or in person. Join a support group like Overeaters Anonymous, heck join several groups, whether they focus on weight loss or not you'll make connections with people who will support you.
