  • I set goals instead of resolutions this year. Goals are positive and an achievement. I am working towards them. Resolutions sound like punishments! - 3/10/2009 9:09:59 AM

  • THE ADVICE WAS ON TARGET. I'VE BEEN CHANGING MY EATING HABITS (I DON'T CALL IT A DIET, BECAUSE THE CHANGE IS FOR A LIFETIME) FOR 2 MONTHS NOW AND i STARTED WRITING A JOURNAL OF WHAT I ATE AND EXERCISE BUT IT'S TURNED INTO A PERSONAL BLOG, I PLAN MY MEALS AND SO FAR I'M STAYING ON TRACK .

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ON YOUR LIFE CHANGING GOALS. - 1/30/2009 1:34:39 PM
  • I remember when I first hear the term "goal setting" I thought it was for those executive types. Over the years I put into practice many of these steps. With practice it does get easier. I "failed" so many times at "dieting" (hate the word). But learned much. I now set goals on auto pilot. Like if doc says I am OK then I will start my exercise program. Now I have to do it! lol - 1/29/2009 7:35:39 PM

  • Some of the best words ever: "DO leave room for failure. DONíT expect perfection.
    Persistence is key. Accept the fact that you might not make it on the first try. In a recent study, only 40% of people who successfully followed New Year's resolutions did it on the first try; 17% of resolution achievers took six or more tries before they got it right Ė but they did get it right." - 12/5/2008 7:15:53 PM
