    Done the Budget Brain tool (again) it says i have £97 a month underspend.
    Now I am planning to go back to my class which will be £35 a month.
    Need to work out what I am spending the other £62 on. Some of it will be going into savings via the Chip app. (approx £15 per month) I allocate myself £50 spends a month - but what am I actually doing with it? Most of it has been food in the last few months, but now I am bringing my lunch in from home I shouldn't need to be spending much on additional food.
    Going to track it this month to see where it is going.
    £1 on food spent so far.
    £10 taken out to get change to put air in my tyres, some of the change from that went to Rotary collection when they brought their Santa float round. Husband bought something and I reimbursed him. I can't remember what. I know at least 50p went into my piggy bank.

    Will try and keep track of what I am doing!

    So my weight loss goal date is 18/11/2018 (based on 1lb a week)
    It's a bit like a debt- I ate beyond my means, and I'm now paying off all the chips and chocolate, ice cream etc
    I'm hoping for 'overpayments' to my weight 'debt' in order to bring my goal date a bit closer. Have started a spreadsheet because you've got to have a spreadsheet haven't you


    Its only 10 months anyway - lots quicker than I paid my debt off
