    How's your New Years resolution coming along?
    Hello!

    It's May 19th, 2008.
    It's been 2008 for 5 months and 19 days.
    Since we are a tight knit community of awesome, amazing, cool, funny, great, honest, sincere, trustworthy, crazy, and GENIUS people here, you should know you have a great support system on the forums!
    With that being said, how's your resolutions coming if you made one?


    I guess i'll start. These are in random order.

    1) Improve my grammar in my posts here.
    How is that coming?
    Well.......LOOK A BIRD!
    All jokes aside for now (dun dun dunnnn), i've tried. I should probably try harder.

    2) Become a happier person.

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

    I really have gained a new perspective on my life over the past year.
    I've come to terms with how lucky I am to be alive.
    It's been great. Life is great. I live for a new day. When that day comes each morning, I dread it, but once i'm up and hoppin' it's a GREAT DAY!

    Happiest time of my life. It's a good thing there is a limit to these because I could do them all day.

    3) Be active!

    That's been going good!
    Over the past 11 months i've lost 40lbs, which is something i'd never thought I would be able to do.
    How I did it?
    Well, how 40lbs managed to melt away, i'll never know for sure.
    I didn't change my diet, I still pig out on weekends, and I still LOVE microwave popcorn.
    I think the thing is I ate less of it. I don't eat until i'm full, I eat until i'm not hungry.
    Oh and i've been soda free for over a month now.

    I started high school, and it's a LOT of walking!
    Up the stairs, down the stairs, up, down, up, down, all around!
    Drills, parades, it's been great.


    4) Be myself no matter what.

    Well, you all KNOW the answer to this one.
    The longer i've been here, the weirder i've become.
    It's wonderful.




    How have your resolutions been going?

    Hope this year has been STUNNING!



    Tanner.

    Yeah, my resolutions weren't exactly new years resolutions, just things that I wanted to do in my life, but hadn't started yet.

    Actually, that seems like the definition of a new years resolution, nevermind!

    Two weeks back i decided to shed some weight and have lost 6lbs so far. My target is to lose 3-5lbs a week until I lose 45lbs. I guess I am going the right way so far.

    The reason I put on so much weight is that I dont travel as much I used to and I dont even have to walk around my office anymore. 8-10 hours in front of the computer and having no time for workout could make a lot of difference.

    I chose to be the best father and husband I could be. It's pretty tough, especially for the husband part. My wife is a redhead and comes from a mean, angry and hollering family, where my family is all hugs, super friendly and "have you eaten yet?" My wife does tend to fly off the handle about the smallest of things but she's getting better at controlling herself. I have a calm, quiet, soft-spoken demeanor about myself and it helps her keep her patience down. Of course sometimes I'd like to beat her and toss her out the door for her attitude... but I still love her. Every couple gets that way every now and then. That's part of marriage, I guess.

    I try to spend as much time as I can with my 2 little girls. They grow up so fast. The toddler talks up a storm and hardly shuts up, while the infant is already walking great and she just turned 11 months old. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. My avatar is my oldest daughter on her 2nd birthday back in September. I still love to hold her in my arms. I can't help it.

    LOL Nope. Another favorite line:

    "...was sent to the hospital." (I forget the actual line.)
    "The hospital? What is it?"
    "It's a large building with a bunch of sick people in it. But that's not important right now."

    LMAO!!!

    We should start a new thread about favorite quotes from this movie.

    Didn't make any resolutions, though I did tell myself that I would try and get back into shape. Have lost 20 pounds overall, gained a lot of muscle, dropped a shirt size and am currently on my last belt loop, which means I either need new pants or a smaller belt

    This second one wasn't really something I set out to do, but I think stemmed from the above. I became A LOT more outgoing. See, I was already outgoing, but now it's like on overdrive. Also, even though this was my last semester at college, I made a ton of new friends.

    So I dropped some weight, increased an already inflated sense of self-confidence, got into law school, and will be graduating college on Thursday. I'd say it's been a pretty good year thus far
