    My 2015-2020 timeline diary......... 12th Aug 15 at 11:42 AM
    Hey,

    This is my timeline diary, I am going to keep this up to date with my debt, savings & all that jazz until I am a debt free, home-owning responsible adult

    I am setting myself this timeline because I realise now that it will take me this long to sort out my life financially.

    My main problems are frivolous spending on anything really, spending on credit cards just because I have them & also holidays!

    So here goesssssssssssss

    Oh really, wave away but I won't be there

    Had a lovely day out today with the Sis & the kids, we went to The Falkirk Wheel then The Kelpies.

    Had a picnic which was lovely, not all of it WW friendly but I don't think I did too bad. Had a cheese, ham & mayo roll. Drank sugar free pop then came home & had a pasta pot that I had initially bought for lunch.

    Hoping the scales appreciate my restraint tomorrow

    Thanks lovely.

    Been a good day WW wise, my new week started from today so new weekly SP refreshed also.

    Had a wee half day so nipped to the bargain shop for some supplies that DH informed me we needed then home to catch up on some Tattoo of Us, I love Charlotte so this show cracks me up. I'm not sure I would be brave enough to allow someone to choose a tattoo for me then let it be tattoed before I have even seen it!

    Stuck to plan today WW wise, finished up on 32SP which means I have used 2SP from my weekly allowance so far.

    Hopefully will be under 14st 10lbs by the end of this week!

    CC's are finally up to date, I don't have the patience to wait this long people!

    Debt total is not so bad I suppose, will try to be more focused on that SBCC from this month as that is the one we use for grocery shopping & it can tend to creep up a bit - no more though!!

    Weight is stuck, just gonna keep trying.

    I've just started WW, first weigh in was Friday and I'd lost a 1lb. Happy with that as I only need to lose a stone. I've found it ok so far. I went out with a friend on Friday evening so did dip into my weeklies a bit.

    Hoping for another loss this week!

    You're doing well with your loss Dolly!
