So, Yesterday wrote how I gained 8lbs…yes 8lbs in one week. Say what? I only weigh 160 so thats a good chunk of my %. Dumb.
I’ve also gained the same portion in debt. FI & I are normally very concientious, but this wedding is KILLING US. I bought a few things online for the wedding party, and put down a deposit on a vendor. What I didn’t realize was that my insurance, and a subcription, and I put some minor car maintenance onto my MC…and now my balance is at $2600. SAY WHAT?!
Even when I was a student I never let my balance get above what I could pay wihin the month.
PLUS we still have a shit load of wedding expenses coming before August.
I hate weddings. I hate how much they cost. I hate stress.
That is all.

So sorry! It is really stressful and hits hard… but just remember that it will be worth it… and the debt will go away- especially if you are concious and responsible- which you definatley sound like. Take a deep breath and just remember its only a few more months.

Oh… and to combat the 8 lbs… drink only water- and lots of it, cold is better than luke warm. Most likely a lot of what you gained is water weight, and is caused by retention when you dont drink enough. By drinking more, your body will realize it doesnt need to hold on to it and will drop all that it is retaining… yes you’ll pee a TON but that will stop afte the first week. In addition, by filling up with water, you’ll have less of an appetite, helping you to eat less. When you think you;re hungry- have a glass of water first- then eat something.. Hope that helps!
