@LeftBench ,what a beautiful story and a beautiful family you have. It's amazing to see the progress you've had in such a short period of time. Thank you very much for having the courage to share your journey with us and keeping the right attitude to change your situation. I have found a ton of value in reading your thread. In both taking action and learning how to sacrifice your own selfish needs for the well-being of your family. It takes a strong person to do so.

@LeftBench just read through the entire thread. What a journey you've made! Congrats on your progress and the realizations that you've made early before it turned for the worse. I'm glad to hear that life is going well for you.

Would you happen to have any updates in 2018? Curious to see how your progress is going a few months after your last update!

Hey brother! Thank you for the kind words. 2018 is off to a good start so far. Just cruising along now. I had to get rid of the beater pickup truck I bought, and we ended up getting a slightly used mini van. We have another payment again but its less than half of my old truck payment, thankfully.

Still chipping away and chugging along.. no complaints!

I hope everyone is crushing 2019.

Happy to report that our credit card debt is finally at $0.00!!!!!!!!!!

We are happy for many reasons, one being that my wife and I had our third child (3rd boy!) in October of 2018. So life has been crazy but awesome.

We kept our eyes on the goal. We strayed a bit and overspent here and there, but we are so pumped to be out of credit card debt finally.

Just wanted to let you all know. I hope everyone is well.

Being in the house cleaning business, I saw many families like yours was. The difference..... they were in over their heads and either didn't know where to turn or didn't want to face reailty and not look like a big shot to their friends. Your family on the other hand, did the right thing and it seems as though you are very happy. Your future looks bright! Stay happy.

Oh yeah, about the straying from your budget.... who ever reads this..... it's ok, we all need a little pick me up every now and then. If you are trying to get your life straight like this family did, just pick up the budget today, where you left off before and you will be debt free before you know it.

Man this is an inspiring thread, thank you for posting. I've been looking at buying my first property to live in, bank would lend me a fair bit, but this has reaffirmed that in the future I need to only buy what I need, an amount I can pay each month almost without having to think about it. An owned house / apartment is better than nothing and adds security to the equation, but indeed fastlane streams of income are the ultimate goal. Thanks again.

I'm gonna upgrade and buy a massive house!

Just kidding. Not doing anything special.

What's next? Re-reading TMF, read Unscripted, get more involved in the forums, and focus on becoming a Fastlane Millionaire.

And staying out of debt

I just read through the whole thread, amazing job! With the discipline you built up and the determination you used to reach your goals over the course of years I can see you making it into the fastlane.
Congratulations and best of luck!

And now I'm up to my eyeballs in debt.

I make a decent living from my Slowlane job, but obviously its not what I want in life, which is why I am here. Recently my family and I upgraded to a much nicer home on a bigger piece of land. I knew that money was going to be tight, but didn't realize it was going to be THIS tight. We've been racking up some debt on the credit cards and are just barely able to cover all the bills. I have a few loans that will be paid off soon, making it easier to make sure all the bills will be paid, but I'll definitely still be living paycheck to paycheck.

This is possibly the best thing to ever happen to me though. I needed a kick in the a$$ to get myself back into the Fastlane mindset. Now that I'm feeling the heat knowing that I need to be making extra money to keep this roof over my family's head, I KNOW that I will succeed.

Thanks to the MF book and this forum, I have a much different MINDSET than I had years ago. I am making different CHOICES and I am experiencing a level of MOTIVATION that I've never experienced before. Old me would be blaming my poor choices on bad luck, my job, someone else, etc. New me is using this as a motivator to go out there and find some needs and kick some a$$.

Have a great night all.
Don't wanna be mean, after all I'm talking out of my a$$ but that sounds a lot like sidewalk to me
