I am a 23 year old graduate student, studying biostatistics. When I graduated high school 5 years ago, I didn't change my way of eating despite the fact that I went from working out almost every day, to not working out at all. This caused me to gain a significant amount of weight in my first year of college. This, combined with getting married at the age of 20, I got VERY comfortable and didn't pay attention to my weight. Over the course of 3 years, I gained approximately 50 lbs. It is now my intention to lose every single pound!

New year comes to give us a fresh hope,
For a better future and success
New Year gives us dream for that
We will face challenges with confidence
On this new year may your dreams and hopes
Succeed with the blessings of God
Happy New Year and Seasons greetings

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
