Weeks to go: 49!
Thu, 03-14-2013 - 12:59pm

Boy, the forties sure do sound good to me.  

We reached a milestone this week.  Our starting balance was $125,995.00.  After today's payment of $518...our total paid in just went to a whopping

(drum roll please)  $100,379.00!!!!!

Health wise, the last three years have been rough.  Not my back, or heart or arthritis, I ate or come in contact with some type of bacteria that has played havoc on my intestines.  YES, a nightmare case of lower intestional problems.  Finally changed to a new doctor yesterday (husband's doctor) and I already have tons more energy.  I was slightly dehydrated and still pushing the Power Aid and water.  G-Whiz this bug thingy was horrible and I'm still not back to normal but better than I was!  

Once again......Life Is Good.

"You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future"  Author Unknow  but this note is underneath my computer screen and I try to read it daily.  I hope it can be of some help to others here.

Sincerely, Norma J.

Woot!  Woot! 

It's been very powerful following your posts and watching your number of weeks pass.  You ARE at less than a year now!!! 

The stomach bug is no joke this year.  So sorry to hear of your suffering.  It's just AWFUL but it sounds like the worst is over. 

Keep on keeping on Norma J.!

Happy dance here in Oregon!

I one of those that is funny about numbers.  Only ran even numbers on the treadmill, etc.  

Just love that feeling of a debt getting below the next increment.

Yay Norma!  The stomach bug that has gone around this year has been horrible!  Sorry you were down and out.  Do you take a probiotic supplement?  I find it really helps to keep my gut in balance, especially after an illness.  Seeing your debt total paid/left to pay has got to get you feeling good!

YES on the probiotic and yogart too.  I've been on a diet since the second week of January, so i cut back on my fruit and ate really bland for about two weeks.  I started introducing normal foods this weekend and so far so good.  The doctor did put me on meds that are working to kill the bad bacteria that seems to have taken over my body.  My energy level was up a lot this weekend and I no longer look pale faced.  Husband even noticed the difference when he came home from the road this weekend.  Paws crossed, but I hope after 4 weeks this bug has been squished!
