I have been trying for months to lose weight. And not succeeding! In fact since I started I put on about 7 kilos!! But the last few days or so I think I have cracked it...

5 Jan: 148.3 kg (326.26 pounds)
6 Jan: 147.9 kg (325.38 pounds)
7 Jan: 147.0 kg (323.40 pounds)
8 Jan: 146.5 kg (322.30 pounds)

Not bad eh! Lots of veggies, lean meat some dairy, not much bread... yada yada yada LOL

Oh yes and it was payday today so we managed to put $715 extra to the mortgage on top of the minimum payment of $510 (Total: $1225)Now the new balance is 129611.69. YAY, we passed the 130 000 barrier!

I might be able to add a little more next week...

A lot has happened!

A lot has happened since I last posted...

My Dad got sick and had to go to hospital for 3 weeks ... then I got sick and was in hospital for 7 weeks ...

As a result we ran up a lot of credit card debt and added to our mortgage so we aim to pay back the mortgage by 2014, not 2012 now.

In 2008 we paid back nearly $8000 in credit card debt. We also paid over $3500 extra on the mortgage. The balance is now 130 837.27. I hope to get the balance under 110 000 by the end of 2009 hopefully more!

My son has just turned 9, he is happily playing with his presents. He has been playing with his friend up the road a lot these holidays.

I will be going more to craft this year and trying to go out a bit more and of course stay well!

Oh and our income might be increasing quite a bit in the middle of the year because of increases to the pension being promised by the government...

Here's to a great 2009!
