  1. Does Anyone Have a Time Machine?

    Does anyone have a time machine? Can I borrow it? I would love to go back in time and kick my own butt. There are several reasons for this.

    1) I was a size 4 and honestly thought I was fat. Where did I think I was going to lose the weight from, my earlobes? Can anyone say body dismorphic disorder?

    2) I spent way too much money on booze and eating out and who knows what else. Now, I'm desperately trying to pay off my credit card debt I accumulated while partying it ...

    WE DID IT!

    Okay, perhaps that looks a bit overboard, but let me back-up and explain some. We made it through the first 'invisible paycheck' which means we made it through September using one paycheck and the other one was put away for the 2010/2012 plan.
