20 lbs? A tall order GB! Why don't you make instead 20 resolutions each one of them for losing 1 lb. This way you are certain not to break at least some of your resolutions.

Respect for others and generosity to everyone. Same things I say every year, and same things I carry out.

Those are easy, much easire than keeping to some diet or exercise plan. I don't believe in a diety so I don't do this for the promise of some reward later on...I do it because I reap the rewards now.

So, let me say this....Live Out Loud, and dance like you are the only one who hears the music. Don't wait for people to earn your respect, just give it. You can always take it back if they disappoint you. Give of your heart and spirit and you'll always have someone in your life to give back to you. Encourage people and you'll soar ahead.

I hope everyone has a healthy and happy new year. This is the stuff dreams are made of.

If you don't make them you can't break them! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!! I don't need to make a resolution to be kinder, more generous, happier, thinner, etc. It's either going to happen or not and no resolution is going to make me "be" more of anything.........otherwise I WOULD make about 50 resolutions boufa-style!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My goal is to organize my photograph's into albums, I started but keep getting frustrated thinking I have to put them into a certain time frame, etc, but ya know what, they are going into the albums in no particular order

Next thing would be to start planning my spring garden better because I always choose plants that simply wont work for my area, my bed is too small and I want so many plants, so I have to learn to plan that better.

Next is to organize my attic and chuck stuff!

GB, you have a great goal set for yourself. Not sure what your approach will be, but "diets" dont really work. Portion control, cut down on fried foods if you eat them, and exercise is about all I've found to work. Good luck to you!

I too am hesitant about making resolutions as I more than likely break them, I am setting a goal for myself to keep this year's resolution. Now that I am in a warmer state, my resolution is to walk at least once a day. I love to be oudoors and lately I have found myself making excuses not to be. Plus, it's healthy. Excercise of any kind is. Eventually, I think I will run but for now, it will be walking or rollerblading.

Best of luck to those of you have set resolutions and Happy New Year to everyone on DC!!

Amber, this is the first time I have ever needed to lose weight so it is very new to me. For the majority of my life I had been trying to gain weight as I was way too skinny.

My plan is to go on a diet (don't know what kind. I will let my wife pick as we are both doing it) and get into a normal exercise routine at the same time. I plan on trying to cut down on portions as well as finding healthier alternatives to some of the things I make. The diet is to lose the initial weight and the exercise and portion control as well as eating healthier is to keep it off and re-start healthier habits that I can share with my wife and daughter.
