No, I stop doing that a couple of year ago. I make small goals and challenges during the year.

I make resolutions ....BUT....they have to be fun ones. For example I had always wanted to learn to play the piano so I resolved to take piano lessons. I did and had fun. I don't play well but so what?

I wanted to learn to swing dance, so I took lessons. I'm not that good at it but it's fun.

I've also taken a painting class, a wood carving class and a candy making class.

I think making a resolution to do something fun makes my life more fun. And I never succeeded at the Lose weight, quit smoking type of resolutions.

I don't make New Year's resolutions. I just try and live a good and healthy life all year long.

I am not really one to make New Year's resolutions, but I would like to stay on track w/ my weight loss and health goals and would also like to work to become more financially sound.

I no longer make NY resolutions, I make promises and goals to myself, it seems to work better for me.

My New Years resolution is to make No more Resolutions! A Resolution for 12 entire months! makes me feel sad and guilty if I fail a few or several months into the new year. Several short term plans during the year work better for me.

I don't do new Year's resolutions but I do set goals for the year. The trouble is I tend to review them at the end of January and then not until December 31st. I know I have achieved some of my goals for 2013 though. They can be about all sorts of thing - getting things done in the house, books to read, places to go, weight to lose - all sorts.

I make New Year's resolutions but hardly ever keep them. Right now, I have a lot of stressful things going on in my life, so I'm not going to be too concerned about resolutions this coming year. I will, however, be happy that the high-calorie-food season is over, so I'll use January as a jumping off point to being healthier.

No, I have a vision board and my goals, dreams, etc are always on there!

I do make New Year's Resolutions, and I'm pretty good at sticking to them.

I suppose that's why I continue to make them - there's lots of areas for improvement with me.

I don't make resolutions, BUT do work very hard to make sure I'm in a strong exercise routine starting late Oct or early Nov. That makes me more determined to get in my workout when the resolution crowd takes over the gym for a few weeks. I'll find an alternative so I can keep working out.

Lol, although I do realize that it is not yet even Christmas, I have a habit of contemplating and formulating my New Year's Resolution in late December and it's the time again.

I love New Year's Resolution making and often make a whole list but refine it down by the end of the year to one or maybe two or a few items.

I also realize some folks DON'T make resolutions and think that is interesting to hear about, too.

My resolution is a work in progress, still, but was wondering if anyone had anything to share about their resolution making or lack thereof or a fully formed or tentative resolution?

I am thinking along the lines of maintaining weight, being more productive and continuing strides I've made this year in health and various other areas of life ... or something lol.
