Now I'm on fire!

Monday, June 18, 2012

So horsebackriding is the only sport type activity I've ever been good at. Haven't ridden in a long while due to my weight. The last time I rode, the stable head looked at me with a scoff and asked how much I weighed. I was only 170 then but it embarrassed me so much that I haven't been on a horse since.

Friends of mine train horses and he weighs probably around 240. He told me no reason I shouldn't be able to ride. So I get up my courage and decide to take my daughter riding at the lake this weekend. Guess what? The weight limit is 220!!! I was down to 205 and gained 20 lbs.

I'm not really angry at myself-just determined that I will not let my weight stop me from doing the things I love and from passing them on to my daughter. I will be on a horse this fall!
