General chatter - Who else is excited for 2010 and what are you excited for??

I am excited to move into my new apartment on the beach in january!

I am excited to be in much better shape and feeling better and actually *going* to said beach!

I am excited because I just got a new job that I start in january that will triple my income and I will finally not be treading water anymore - I'll actually be DRAINING the water that has almost drowned me for the past 6 years.

I think 2010 will be a great year!
What are you looking forward to?

12-17-2009, 04:04 PM
You'll have fun! My friend did that for a year or two (took an apartment near the beach, even though it was high rent and a studio!) and she enjoyed it. It's not just being by the beach, but also the whole community and shop to walk around to and stuff.

I know most of you wont/cant relate to most of this but here is what I am excited for.

I am excited to get this weight off once and for all.
I am excited to reward myself with a new horse when I lose 40-50 pounds (we just bought a farm this fall)
I am excited to get baby chicks and raise them to eat
I am excited to get a new show dog, a puppy.
I am excited to go to my family reunion in September and not be the fattest person there.

12-17-2009, 06:31 PM
I am excited to hopefully get my career started next year!
I am excited to get the rest of this weight off!

With those two things life will be a lot better (I hear ya about drowning) and then who knows what else will come from that :D

I'm excited to finish my weight loss journey, but mostly I'm excited to just get 2009 over-it's been long, stressful, and very,very sad.

i am excited for 2010, because I will no longer be a freshman Nursing Student...and I will feel like I accomplished something finishing that first tough semester.

I am also excited, because I WILL start the year in the 160s AND I haven't been at that weight since 2006.

I am also excited for 2010, because I will have more bulbs available at my outlet store...and I love planting bulbs.

I'm excited for 2010... because

I am going back to school this year
If I take off another 40-60 lbs, I will be frickin skinny!!!
I am hoping to move out on my own permanently in 2010
I hope to find more of my footing in life this year

I'm excited for 2010 because:
* I'm getting married
* The olympics are in my city and I think it will be an exciting time
* I will hopefully be buying a house this year

12-18-2009, 04:49 PM
In 2010 I'll be at a healthy weight for the first time in over 10 years!

12-18-2009, 06:58 PM
I am excited to finally, hopefully, get to tackle my weight loss full out. I had back surgery a few days ago and hopefully next year I will be able to slowly increase my workout abilities to help my weight loss.

I can't wait to get back to the gym. It will be slow going but I am ok with that.

I'm excited for 2010 because I plan on it being the last year I spend fat!

I'm excited because I have a job I love and I plan on enjoying it all year and maybe getting a raise.

There are awesome people at my fantastic job and I'm excited to hang out with them outside of work.

I'm excited to get into shape in 2010. I've never been able to do anything athletic, in 2010 I will be athletic.

I actually really enjoyed 2009. It was kind of an emotional roller coaster sometimes, but I think I grew a lot and figured out where I want to go in life :)

For 2010 I'm looking forward to reaching my weightloss goal and maintaining it. If I keep up my rate of weightloss (I've lost a solid 2lbs for the last month), I should reach my final goal by my birthday in March!

I'm also VERY much looking forward to my boyfriend coming home from his deployment to Iraq. That's not until October though, so right now I'm excited about when he comes home on R&R leave in June or July.

Im looking forward to a lot of changes. Im used to taking care of everyone else and being their support that I forget about me . . . . but that way of thinking is leaving at 11:59!
A healthier, smarter more active lifestyle
A career change to what I really love
Another year with my little guy

its already looking good :)

Aaaaahhhhh..... I'm excited for 2010 because:

As of this past weekend, I closed my barber shop. I was not prepared for how much I would miss being at home and went to work because I missed my son being home with me (he started kindergarden). So, with the shop closed, I'm looking forward to:

Being at home with my own fridge and being able to stick to my diet and eat right
Starting an exercise routine I can stick to
Getting my house reorganized and having it be clean for a change
Painting my living room, kitchen and daughter's bedroom
Sewing the curtains I have material for for my bedroom
Plannign fun things to do with the kids when they come home from school
Feeling healthier and having my clothes fit
Getting back in touch with myself and recentering myself
Having just a few quality customers to do at their houses for mad money
Being able to be the mom my kids deserve (I have no idea how working moms have it so together)

I am excited for 2010 because:

* I will be going back to school this year and applying for nursing school in the Fall (crossing fingers).

* Go to California in the summer for my cousin's wedding.

* Reach Onederland, if nothing else (hopefully lose more)!

* Finally be able to buy cheaper clothes in smaller sizes that I love.

12-22-2009, 05:12 PM
Yeah, I'm well excited. A new year, a new start, new goals!

I am excited for 2010 because I plan to:

* Continue my journey to a healthier weight and a fitter, stronger me. When I reach onderland, you are going to hear me shriek with delight!

* I will get to see my cousin's newborn premature twins (God willing). They are still very sick and in an intensive care unit - only the parents are allowed in to see them just now.

* I am going to complete my Exercise to Music qualification

* I will get to enjoy my garden which was landscaped this year - the weather here in the UK has meant I haven't been able to get the use of it yet

* I am going back to Gran Canaria where I used to live to meet up with old friends

and that's just for starters! Have a wonderful New Year everyone - may it bring you love, peace and happiness. x

I am excited to rededicate myself to my 2009 goal of SIMPLIFYING! Less is more in every way, shape and form. I am starting early by going through my kitchen. I am even parting with a set of dishes and my dear old cookbooks. I am also letting go of mismatched coffee mugs and plastic cups.

In relation to fitness I plan to add strength training of some sort. I will also be biking to my store and trying hot yoga. I accomplished my goal this year of beginning Tennis. Yeah, I discovered I didn't like it.

I'm really excited for 2010!!!!

I'm mostly excited for the 2010 OLYMPICS!!! My friends and I are going and have curling tickets and tickets to a figure skating practice. I just can't wait to be there and soaking everything in. It's definitely one of those "once in a lifetime" opportunities and I am really excited to share the experience with my friends. We have all been looking forward to this for so long!!!
