Here's To the New Year!

I am so happy that it's the new year now. It's very symbolic to me as being a fresh beginning for me and my family.

2013 was a very bad and rough year for us. I got some bad news in January to start off with, then came July and my beloved brother passed away. I and my family dealt with the after math of his death. It was very hard.

I had move back to college a month and a half after my brother passed, didn't really do good there. Lost all of my "friends" and was failing classes. I ate everything in sight and gained 60-70 pounds in 3-4 months. Thank God I met new people that befriended me. And I just got my grades in and I passed all my classes. Not as good as I usually do, but I was happy enough to pass.

So now its the New Year

This is very good for me to be out of the year that hurt so bad.

First thing first I am going to be Happy.

Second thing is i'm going to get back down to 120 pounds. It's going to take some time but I need to get my health back on track.

Third thing is i'm going to kick butt in my last semester of college!

I hope this is a great year for me!!!

I'm starting this thread because I want to keep updating it. Especially with my weight and my grades. So if I'm ever feeling to go off the band wagon then I read this to help me.

So starting weight is...............
I'm not really embarrassed by my weight gain at all. I had a traumatic experience in my life... so I think I was allowed to gain some weight.

But anyway current weight ---- 190 lbs.

Def not my usual. I usually am around 120-130 pounds.

So time to get started.

Happy New Year everyone!! Hope it's a good one!

I wish you lots of luck! A fresh new year, a fresh start on life. This will be my fresh start too, since this past year wasn't so good for me either.

I am very sorry for you loss of your brother.

I had a similar experience that is still kind of going on now.
My brother moved away across the country for two years (he is a mormon and doin those mormon missions they do. I'm not mormon so I know nothing about them except that they can't talk to anyone on the phone except twice a year. And with two families, its just confusing I won't go into it.

I lost there of my best friends because they don't think I am fun and exciting or whatever anymore. I found a new group of friends that make me happier than I was when I was with the three before. BUt my friends don't know what is going on with ME.
I am actually eating more for some reason and I am not how I usually am at all. I usually get my work done much more ahead of time and I always get almost all A's except one B.
I am passing all my classes, but barely.

But 2014 is a new year to start and 2013 did such for me in terms of socializing with people and having friends.
I think I might just become a hermit and live at home under the covers. It's warm under there ;)

And for my weight - I am 5' 7'' and usually weigh about 113. But with my eating a ton I gained quite a few pounds and now have a noticeable tummy. Hehe! Never had a tummy or butt before!! ;)

So I am looking forward to hear your updates and hopefully I can get better along with you as well.

And I hope you have a much better 2014.

Thanks all of you for the great support! I'm diving into this new year overly excited and ready!!!

Amberly I hope everything works out for you too! I mean its the year of horse! So it must be great!

How I started off my first day of the new year is eating healthy *so far* lol and went shopping and got a new pair of boots.

I did some riding on my horse... WHO WAS AN ANGEL! So that was wonderful and spent some time with my boy. Now i'm at home with my family. Not sure what I will do for the rest of the day but i'm content with how it is.

I will be riding tomorrow. Thankfully we have found an indoor arena to ride in - we don't ride outside in winter and if we couldn't ride I would be a sad sad person all winter! Hehe!

I ride western usually but my friend is teaching me how to jump english. Right now I think brisco was last jump at somewhere just under 18''. He does great and she says my form is great too.

And of course! The year of the horse has to be a good year!!

I wanted to ride on the first day and thankfully my horse did very well. So it made me all that much more happier.

I wish I had an indoor!!! Now since I keep my horses at my house we have no indoor like I used to whenI board but it's okay for me.

I used to ride Hero english and did jumping but now i'm with western. I'm so indecisive what I want him mainly to do!! Lol

Indoor or not, there's nothing in the world like having your horses at home! Have a very happy and healthy New Year!! :)
