We do have a thread set up for 2012 goals, if you didn't see it!
I was raised in a Christian home with a grandfather that was a pastor and I can say I never read the bible all the way through...only passages. I have thought about reading the Bible through and through as well, but haven't. I even asked the pastor where to start, but that was several years ago. I will have to check out the website out of curiosity.
First I have to say that I do not make New Year Resolutions anymore, because they never last. However, I would like to continue my babysteps towards losing weight (it's working); do my exercises I have been given in Physical Therapy, and enjoy life. Also, one of my goals was to start the year out right by going to church this morning, and I did it. I also would like to read the entire Bible this year. I have never made it all the way through. I would like to read the whole Bible through at least once in my life. I have read the whole New Testament, and I have read many passages over and over again through my lifetime in Old and New Testaments. Ok now. I am not trying to be a Bible thumper -- this is a goal for my life and it would not hurt anyone to do it. Our pastor suggested using bibleplan.org to help, so I signed up for one of the plans today. It helps to have "accountability" in all areas of our lives. That's one of the reasons I like sparkpeople.com.
Your life, food, drink, clothing -- "Your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself." Matthew 6: 32b-34a

1. This year I would like to have my THR. I've been in so much pain as of late, I'm leary to tackle the 10 lbs in 10 day challenage. At the moment My right hip/thigh is exactly double the size of my left (I measured last night). With all of this swelling - my scale numbers are a bit untrustworthy. But I will definitely keep up with my healthy lifestyle habits, and will work in exercise as I can. 2. Take control of my finances and pay off some old debt. 3. Work on a positive outlook, somedays are harder than others, but looking for the good in every situation seems to help all aspects in my life.
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

We should consider every day lost in which we have not danced at least once.
Good goals Sophie. I want to lose the pounds I have gained over Christmas, that is my first goal. I just can't seem to get back on track. My hubby has had a few bad months and lots of doctor appts. We both need to get back on track..
So 5 lbs for January.

The New Year is almost here and I thought we needed to add some challenges to this forum. We haven't had any...hmmm? Of course, since many of you recently had your surgeries, we will need to take it easy!!
Our new challenges will be the "Minutes, Miles, and Step Challenge". Let's get back at it! Move it, Move it, Move it!! We also have the "How Do You "Measure Up" thread. This was posted so that you could take measurements of your body to see what you have lost. Remember you may not have lost in weight, but you may have lost in inches!! If you want to post you loss there, great!! The last challenge will be for losing 10 lbs in 10 weeks. That would take us to the week ending March 12th. 1 lbs a week is a reasonable weight loss goal.
What are your goals for 2011? Start out with small ones to meet your annual goal. It doesn't even have to be health/weight related.
