Resolution #1: Surround myself with positive people. In the last couple of months, I have began staying away from negative situations or negative people. It makes a huge difference. It's one less thing to worry about. It's not just the attitudes of people but also the habits. Being around people who are too obsessed with dieting to the point to where they have disordered eating is not healthy to be around. It's okay to be supportive of people from a distance. You can still be there for them or have days where you see them but it just can't be all the time. There were a couple of times when people made comments that made me feel horrible. I refuse to feel down about myself because I am trying to get healthy in a sensible way. I do understand that the people I am talking about are sick and in need of support & help but they have to want it. I have learned that I can't make them change. Only they can decide if they want to get better. Some negativity is difficult to escape like if you live with the person who is a pessimist. My suggestion is to redirect their frustration. If someone is complaining what they hate about their house, ask them all of the things they do like. It doesn't always work but it's worth a try! :) emoticon

Resolution #2: Quit Over-analyzing. I do it all the time. It's irritating but it's not something that you can "just quit." It's something I have to work at but I know that it will have a very positive impact on my health. I have a head start on this because I found an article and I think I may have found the reason why I over think things. emoticon

Resolution #3: Walk for 60 minutes 4 x per week. I LOVE walking. I have a dog. She LOVES walking. No excuses! Walking is simple & it makes your body feel good. It is enjoyable so why not? emoticon

Resolution #4 If it doesn't grow out of the ground or from a plant or a vine, or come from an animal, it's probably a good idea not to eat it. Also try to stay away from things that make you feel ill when possible. (dairy & wheat.) emoticon

Resolution #5: Cut down screen time. I would just like to spend more time outside as
well as more time improving my health. emoticon emoticon

    I think these are wonderful goals/resolutions. These are all healthy things to work on and you know the reasons why you want them. Next is making sure you have the plans in place to keep with it. Ask yourself things like how often will you check in with yourself to see if you're keeping to them and what will do you if you find yourself off track. It will help you stick with it when 'life' happens.

I think getting away from negativity is an excellent goal. It's something I need to work on too. When I drop into a depression it's so difficult for me to deal with it. I can't fix it easily and I can't expect to change it without really working on it, so I'm working on it slowly and I know I've come quite a ways from where I was a few years ago. I'm also deciding what to do about the negative people I'm finding around me. As much as I want to help them, some people really just do not want help and prefer to cocoon into their disordered thinking. So I'm working on being okay with walking away so they don't pull me back into the abyss.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. You deserve great things!
