    Makes sense

    The most expensive $$$ ones are accurate lol. If u can find one... go to a bod pod. Where do u live in SD?

  3. I use calipers. I take 5 measurements and do the average of those. Maybe a little off but as long as you're moving to your goal, IMO doesn't matter if you're really 1.5% higher than the reading if its moving down each week.

    My number one resolution is to get married

    I'll be popping the question within the next couple months, so a lot going on (ring shopping, locking down the venue for the proposal, planning a wedding to happen sometime this Summer or Fall and all the craziness that comes along with it).

    Tied into that resolution is really working out our finances and paying off her student loans as quickly as possible. I lucked out in not having any, so I'm debt free and am not fondly looking forward to taking on 40k in debt lol.

    It'll be a big year

    lol thanks, bro. As long as she gets a job quickly after finishing her student teaching in May, it shouldn't be bad. That's what I'm crossing my fingers for because we want to have a kid relatively soon and I told her we're not doing that until her debt is paid off.

    Good luck MWB! Being married and having a kid is the most demanding/fulfilling thing you'll ever do. Just make sure you're both prepared for the work.

    Thanks, bud. I'm only about 5 months older than her and this is her master's she is finishing, so it makes it a little bit easier to stomach the debt, because she was really smart about what she did (only has about $17k in debt from undergrad and the master's will be about $20k, which was the cheapest tuition in state by a longshot). The part that irks me is that her parents helped her younger sister out and paid her way and she also didn't even work (just graduated with her bachelor's a few weeks ago), whereas my girlfriend worked during both degrees, just like I did. That's another story, though

    But I knew after a few months she is who I want to spend my life with. The only two things that initially slowed me down were the debt, which I got over pretty quickly and then she was raised Catholic and I go to a non-denominational church and really needed a wife who would be attending church with me and operating through marriage from the same viewpoint. After we talked about it, she's been coming with me ever since and the conversation actually made her rethink a lot of things, because she didn't even really enjoy her church, but it was habit for her. As soon as that part changed, I knew she was the one.

    Thanks, man!

    It's funny you mention the work, because I was just talking to one of my best friends and his wife when we were back in our hometown, last week. They both have school debt and now have a daughter who is about 10 months old. They both have really well-paying jobs, but still have about 4-5 years to pay off their debt, they said. Initially, we were wanting to get pregnant almost immediately after the wedding, because both of us imagined/assumed we'd have been married and been parents several years prior, so both of us want that and don't want to wait too long, as I'm 27 and she'll turn 27 this month. But that discussion really helped me and also got me the balls to finally ask her what the debt amount was (I previously just didn't want to know as long as possible because I was afraid to know how much we'd have to pay off lol).

    Anyway, all of this made me realize that almost nothing I do in life is because of the level of ease. Being a parent will not be easy for sure, but I've wanted to be a dad for a very long time. It would be incredibly easy (and fun, in its own sense) to just get married, not have the time demands or expenses tied to a child and just live our own lives, but I know it would ultimately feel empty. I'm taking classes now to go toward a second master's degree (this one in nutrition) and I'm definitely not looking forward to the extra time demands of anatomy and physiology on top of another class, and work, and planning the wedding, but I live life to accomplish/do/have what I want and generally speaking, the things that are worth doing, are often far from the easiest route.

    Haha, funny you should say that, but Justin and I had already discussed this. I would invite you if you would actually make the trip down.
