Lily arrives this Friday. I suppose I should have thought more about her age instead of the fact that they were advertising her as "English, Western, & Trick Trained." We knew we were getting two horses and I wanted at least one to be ride-able upon arrival. {sigh} Me and my fat butt. If I go on the HCG diet again and resume workouts, I'm hopeful that I will be able to drop 50lbs fairly quickly. Then I won't feel like there is an issue. I think -10lbs/month is a decent goal. I'm sure as I'm working with Pony Boy he won't mind me getting lighter as we go along. lol

Thank you! Good luck to you, too! The desire to enjoy my pony is more than motivation enough. If I had the room, I would buy myself a TWH just to have something to ride. They seem to grow on trees around here.

That's a great idea. I used to have a treadmill and I loved it! It's nice to be able to go running, or in your case biking, no matter the weather. :)

I stopped riding my pony in September due to my weight going over what I was happy to ride her at. In Oct I joined a healthy eating group run by my local health authority. December I joined a gym and started swimming. I do I/2 an hour in the gym every day and started swimming doing just 10 lengths to start with, Now I am upto 20 lengths.

I lost 11lbs and dropped a breeches size in this time. I still have another 17lbs to lose before I start riding again. But it has been my motivation to do all the excercise and eating healthy.

I cannot wait till the day I get back in the saddle, and go for a hack My pony is my motivation too.

YOU LADIES CAN DO THIS..... Your goals are very achieveable

It will not be long till you are hacking you lovely Gypsy cobs and going to shows and parades. You will get there. Post a photo of your first ride :)

I am going to post a before and after photo of me and Eva I am going to show off the new me.

I am keeping myself busy doing groundwork and clicker training with my ponies while I am not riding. There is loads of things you can show your ponies. Walk them out inhand or long rein to to help with your weight loss

Well, it's alright. Pony Boy is of age so I should be able to ride him soon. Which reminds me...I need to get ahold of State Line Tack and find out when they plan to send the bareback pad I ordered...
