Happy New Year Blog...

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I have decided that I am not making resolutions this year I have been on Spark People for almost 4 years and haven't had much success (my own fault & weakness of course)but at the same time I am not giving up I need to get real this year and come to terms that the weight has to come off for health reasons..... I have a couple things lined up in my plans to get healthy and am just hoping to stay focused & get results.... I had thoughts of closing my account and just tracking on paper but then there are the friends that I have made on here(All of you) that make me want to stay here and be as much support as I can...So whatever your New Years Resolutions are I hope that we will all have the strength to achieve them...Big Hugs & Love to all of you emoticon emoticon

    Nope. No resolutions here either. I just want to be happy and healthy and finish up some projects, but those have been my goals since forever. Have a great year! Stay fabulous.

Thank goodness we don't have to hunt you down.
I know you will make the necessary changes to be healthy! You lost someone very dear to you and he was way too young. He'd want you to learn from him and go on to have a healthy happy long life!!

Do It For YOU!! emoticon
In your very own way! emoticon

    I'm so happy that you've decided not to close your account. I look forward to hearing about your adventures and your journey.

I've set goals for myself - both short-term and long-term. They make a lot more sense to me than (I will ... or I won't ... ). It gives me responsibility for my actions and decisions, but also allows me the flexibility to enjoy and unanticipated event without feeling guilty or beating myself up.

    Brenda, I have not made any New Year resolutions, but I DO make DAILY ones! Every day I look at my goal board and think of all the things I want to be able to do and I resolve to do my best each morning to take care of ME and take the steps to make it happen.

I know we BOTH will make huge strides this year. Come on. Let's DO IT! We have places to go and things to do! emoticon - Connie

    I am so glad you are not "closing out!" Another of my lines, "DO NOT CLOSE THAT DOOR (meaning a relationship) TOO TIGHTLY, LEAVE IT AJAR, SO YOU CAN ALWAYS WALK THROUGH IT AGAIN!"

Now, I know I am talking relationships, but think of SP as a relationship! A relationship with YOU! Ways that you can still manage to follow up with, getting inspiration, motivation, and some times okay make that LOTS of times, "hearing from SPFriends with just the thing we needed that day, moment." So many times I have read an "Article, BLOG, or Thread" and said WOW, that is just what I needed. So now you see what I am getting at.

I will love you, no matter HOW, WHAT, or WHERE you are....this is a fact! I also know, another fact, of several people that feel the same way I do! So do not make resolutions, I don't like making them either. I love TADZIO's (yup, I know you too LOL) comment...

"I think instead of "big" promises or resolutions I'm better off looking at it as "continuing" on a healthy trek!"

Love ya, and great BIG Hugs!

    if I have any resolutions they really are continued items for the last several years.

I've been on Sparkpeople (active) since the fall of 2007.

I think instead of "big" promises or resolutions I'm better off looking at it as "continuing" on a healthy trek!
