@MissBoPeep: Hilarious!


I was sadder because I lost my dad three months prior and I wasn’t engaged!

I would say I was thinner (only a couple of pounds)

And I was richer because I didn’t own a home then.


So I guess I’m pretty balanced!

MUCH happier!! I love being engaged ๐Ÿ™‚

Thinner…I lost 50 pounds this year (that’s also one of the reasons I’m happier)

Richer too! I now work full time at a job making more than I was making last year and Fiance and I combined finances.

It’s been a great year!

  Happier- I am engaged to the love of my life, I am enjoying my career…a lot of things are going well!

  Fatter- I’ve gained some weight, but I’ve started Weight Watchers (a program I have been successful with, when I follow it) again, so hopefully when I answer this next year, I can say thinner!

  Poorer- Only because I’ve started grad school and am saving for our wedding!

MUCH happier! I was “waiting” for 2 years of our more than 5 year relationship to get engaged and it finally happened this summer. 

Kinda the same weight wise though my New Years resolution is to diet so we’ll see how that goes.

MUCH richer. This past September I came into a considerable amount of money that I never knew I had. Our software company is also doing much better now too so we have more money coming in from that source.

no happier but not sadder…super happy that I’m finally married but kind of sad that my Mother-In-Law is still living with us after the wedding!!

fatter…I lost weight before the wedding due to stress but I’m going to start going to regular moksha yoga classes

poorer..wedding has been paid for and time to start paying off those debts that racked up while saving for the wedding!

Happier – we are newlyweds now instead of pre-engaged.

About the same – I dropped about 5 lbs before the wedding but have gained them back ๐Ÿ™

Richer – we live in the same place now so aren’t paying rent at two apartments anymore.

I am MUCH happier – our engagement was difficult and I am so much happier being married

I am a little fatter – but in a good way, I was way stressed and lost a lot of weight and kind of looked too thin – Im at a really healthy and comfortable weight right now

I am richer – DH and I both started new jobs in March of this year and DH got a $10,000 raise so that helped a lot!

Well I have one positive I’m happier but I am fatter and poorer.  I’m hoping to get more money in the new year by getting an internship and shed the pounds.
