I am undecided if i want to post my new year's resolutions/goals on here. My goal is if I post it would motivate me and make me more accountable..but if i post and dont succeed, then i look like a lazy goofball on here. I am just tired of feeling like a failure and having the world see it all.....

    The thing about Goals is that they are your own. I am only setting one goal for the New Year myself. I have too many unknowns facing me this new year. WE are just glad you are here to help support us and encourage us as I hope we are do you. emoticon

    I don't make New Year's resolutions, GF. Sometimes when you are struggling it's best to just take is a day at a time and set small goals and go from there. I'm in that place now.

    Such is the conundrum of setting goals. I used to avoid them at all costs because internally I think I wanted to fail. Don't know why, but we do that to ourselves sometimes. It gets better. Once you make the goals public you're more likely to want to meet them. Good luck!!! emoticon

    Are you unhealthier? Have you unlearned things? I think that you're progressing, learning and ya know? I'm not happy with my FAT AMOUNT right now, too. It happens. We do it to ourselves. You know what works? Undoing it. Takes time, what a drag but it feels so much better to be accomplished (not others goals, not even your goals but being able to walk up stairs without stopping, being able to balance on one leg...THOSE things make our lives so much better).

    Post it or don't. Just know what you want to do by what date. I missed my body fat goal cos I ate my way through the last almost 3 months (when I've concurrently been pretty much physically 'grounded'). I know exactly WHY. I'm hoping to go gradually better to build momentum. You will, too!

    Do it.! It's my experience that either way, you'll get lots of support, but when others know what you are up to, they can nudge you along and I'm sure you'll do better for having made your goals public. One step at a time, you can get there. It's ok to take the scenic route, just keep going.

    emoticon emoticon Treat your resolutions/goals as REMINDERS ... and, remember - as time goes on and life throws you curves (which it ALWAYS does) ... it's OK to edit/readjust/reevaluate those resolutions/goals. emoticon emoticon

    Just pick one thing and work towards mastery. You will likely make mistakes....we all do! Just get up, dust yourself off, and try to figure out what you learned. No one will think you're a lazy goofball! We will just think you're human!

    You're not a failure. You're also not the only one who feels that way. Be proud of yourself for not giving up. As long as you keep trying...and trying...and will make progress. Hang in there!

    Be nice to yourself and state one thing you want to do and be specific about it.

    Never ever beat yourself up! This is a tough journey we are all on. No one here would ever think you are lazy if all your goals are not met! You are trying and working on yourself and that is what counts! We are here to support each other, never to bring someone down! emoticon
