Feeling confident...

I have been working really hard this week, trying new recipes, trying new exercises and   just keeping myself focused. And lost 500g...thought it would be more but hey as long as those numbers go down I am smiling.
Its not been easy, a few background drama's going on....namely my husband after 18 years of putting up with crap at his work has told them enough is enough and has told them he is finishing. Him and the manager are in the process of working out all the benefits he is owed. Hubby is 65 and ready to retire....but geee its scary when we have no retirement funds, and not a lot in superannuation to fall back on. But a few months ago we did go see a financial planner, we have a meeting with him coming up soon.....so hopefully things aren't/won't be as bad as I am thinking they may.  
We have no investments, but retirement, cutting expenses, living on a small income doesn't worry me....done it before, can do it again..
Although I want one....just one big overseas holiday before I retire.....I long to travel to Canada and some parts of the USA...wonder will my dream come true.


  1. WOW!!! Thats huge! Well done on making the decision to finally get out of a crappy workplace :)
    I hope it all works out ok for you both. One last trip hey :) Go for it!

  2. Well done on the loss !!! Good work !
    Whew that is a big decision - I hope that when you meet with the financial planner it all works out for you. I think we can all make it work on smaller incomes - you just live accordingly don't you ?
    Have a great day and I hope that this is resolved soon.
    Love, hugs and positive energy !

  3. firstly congrats on the loss and wow exciting times with your man retiring. I'm sure you will both enjoy having him at home lots :)

  4. Congrats on the loss, and what a lifestyle change for you both. Have a happy week :)

  5. Hi Jen, we have just gone down that road with seeing the Financial Planner and working things out. It was better than I thought it would be. Sure it will mean cutting back on things but as you said, done that before and can do it again.
    Great loss by the way.
