If you do not pay the amount of a judgment immediately, interest on the unpaid balance begins to accrue, which is why the judgment amount is larger than it was at first. You may want to consult with a consumer bankruptcy attorney in your area because filing for bankruptcy will stop the garnishment and give you time to resolve your financial problem.

Providian was the subject of several high profile cases involving their unethical and illegal billing and collection practices. Employees even admitted to deliberately throwing away payments made by customers so that late fees and additional interest could accrue. Not sure if this applies in any way to your case but if you speak with an attorney it might be worth mentioning for some added leverage.
