Happy St. Patty's Day, Everyone!
I sure do hope the luck o' the Irish rubs off on me today, for today marks the beginning of my journey to repair my credit. The first set of GW letters are finally in the mail!!! I guess I can say I am unofficially taking the FICO Fitness Challenge, so to speak.
After reading many of your success stories with GW letters, I finally decided it was time to bite the bullet and see if I can make it happen for me, as well.
I know that this is something that will not happen over night, but I am determined NOT to let the poopy lates that occurred when I was unemployed ruin me. I am taking control and begging () my CC companies to remove those baddies.
If no luck, I'll just keep on trying!!!
I am really proud of myself for following through with this, but most of all, I want to THANK all of you who are so willing to offer your success stories to us. You are such an inspiration!!!
Wish me LUCK!!!

Thank you so much, HaulingUpTheScore!
Not sure if any of you feel the same way, but once you get focused and start working on making your credit better, it can become quite addicting, yes? I just love the support that comes from myFICO forums. You all are great!
