I don't do resolutions any more. I always forget them by Feb. Several years ago I took to making a list of 10 things I learned in the last year. Some deep, some silly, all true. Then I Type it out and post it to my FB. I find it helps me to look back and see what I took from it all.

I sometimes do keep my resolutions. My resolution for 2013 is to write a will.

resolutions... to me, it's just an excuse to put something off until january first and then an easy ''off the hook'' to give it up. cuz EVERYONE gives up on new year's resolutions... there's not much accountability there. however.. my goal for the next year is definitely to keep up what i've been doing the past month-ish.

Keep working on my original Spark fast break goals.
This year the only thing that matters for me is to loose weight. I should finally get down to 245 lbs,at least. But of course, if i go even below that, i won't be unhappy. :) That's all. No big words. If i do this 1 single thing, it will be my year. I plan to adhere on veganism and exercising. Also, when on exam period, i'll try not to gain more weight, cause i know it is impossible for me to diet then. What i have found helpful to reinforce me, is the fact that i gained 25 pounds this summer ( which i considered to be lost forever). This was a wake-up call. Now whenver i feel down or failing, i think of this time and how i never want to go back there, and gain ever more pounds. Also being vegan is an ace up my sleeve, because if you watch your nuts,seeds and oils, all foods are naturally low fat, even if some of that have a little too many calories. So it's easier now.
Lose the last 17 lbs of my 74 by April 2013 and maintain the rest of the year.

Funny I just did a blog about this....no resolutions for me this year.....only actions.....meaning not promising to do something , I am just gong to do it......I signed up for another Ironman in August 2013 as well as a half marathon in May, and an around the Bay 3KM open water swim......
Yes, I have goals. No I do NOT have resolutions. The typical person will quit the resolution before the end of January 2013. Just look at the gym memberships right after the new year. Gyms are so crowded you can barely get a machine or even room to exercise. But wait-- the end of january things open up again. WW the same thing. Tons of new members but most will leave before the end of the first quarter. Resolutions is a negative word.
I started early this year because I am tired of being sooooooo very overweight. I can literally be painful, both physically and emotionally. I am more antisocial lately-like I don't want to be around hardly anyone. I know what other people think shouldn't matter, but it kind of does. I love me, and my kids love me, and their daddy loves me, as I am. At any rate... My goal is to make it to 200 lbs by next October, or at least pretty darn close...

my system is a bit different. I make my change efforts late October or early November, because it always involves making sure exercise is a habit. If I've slacked off in the summer, I make sure to get back to my routine so that I will find some way to work out in January when the gym is over crowded.
our exercise room is cleaned out and ready to use. There is a nice park close to the house. And if the Y offers a Boot Camp class in January, I'll sign up.

In 2013 my goal is to eat more of the right foods and hardly any of the wrong ones and allow activity to become a more integral part of my life.

That's a terrific goal. Letting go of insignificant details such as spelling. Not being petty opens life up. The possibilities if we could just be kind and appreciate one another for our individual flaws. Celebrate imperfections because they make us unique.
