    I need to return to this and actually focus on it. My debt has grown rather than decreased.
    I am going to start with 500 as my target. Think my other targets have been maybe a little too high and this has been overwhelming and meant that I have not completed the challenge.

    Can I join again please. My debt has gone up due to circumstances. I would like to start with my smallest debt. It's about 340 but I need to check the exact figure. If I complete it I may start on another.

    I will come back with my target.

    Thanks Amara

    I've just checked my target is 338.56
