Our wedding venue for our wedding in September just filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I was told that with a chapter 7, we're less likely to get our deposits. We are scrambling to find a new venue and our cash reserves are low. Should I sell stocks to cover the deficit or should I just acquire some debt and religiously pay it after the wedding?

Meeting with the dietician today. Nervous but I need accountability... The past two weeks have been terrible. Illnesses (can't workout for a few more days at least because of infections). People quitting and leaving me with a massive workload. But at the same time, this should be easy. I have chickens. They poop healthy food. I WFH two days a week. Perfect time to meal prep. I need to do something before my weight gets out of control. Goal is to lose a pound a week for the next six months.
Anyone else think the IWM chart looks ugly?
