Really wish I would have downloaded personal capital when I started working to be able to easily answer this. I started with well over 70K in debt (maybe 80). I know started EY putting in 13% a year in 401k and become more aggressive I'm pay off student loans after 3 or so years.

I would have to guess that I would have had to hit zero net worth 4 years in maybe? I would have been 27 then.

I'm currently a few month into 31 and net worth is now about $220K

I think (guessing by loan decrease and retirement increase) probably went positive last year at 30. I’m not including home equity in this though.

Also, for context, I’m now around 130lbs at 5’5 so my weight loss has slowed down and even a few lbs will be noticeable!
