  • I don't make resolutions. Too easy to break. That said, I am still working on a decision I made in 2005 to get healthy. So far I've lost 160+ pounds, diabetes, and high blood pressure. - 1/12/2014 9:24:58 AM
  • The only thing I decided for THIS year was that I was going to keep trying NO MATTER how many setbacks I encounter and that I will be kind to myself for any failures and will try harder to keep active. I have found it is pointless and frustrating to make resolutions only to break them down the road.

  • Another idea: Eat foods that you are not to fond of but can still eat.My husband met a lady who lost over 300lbs.She told him that eating the less desireable foods really helped her to lose the weight weather or not she can keep it off is another issue all together.I can think of many foods that I am not crazy about but can eat,how about you??

  • I feel that ALL 12 months would be nice to have in ONE download for printing... Please! - 2/26/2013 1:44:52 PM
  • I wanted to print out a few of these for the coming months, but I can't seem to get it. I know it says I need Adobe and I do have it, but it is not giving it to me. From the previous comments, I am not the only one. I'm wondering if it MAY be time for SP to UPDATE this since it is indeed from several years ago. :-( Also, bear in mind when designing the pages to watch exactly where the ads are going and make sure they DO NOT hinder any of the page links! - 1/27/2013 8:28:19 PM
  • I like the calender for January so much that I thought I would get ahead of the game and print out Feb and March. There seems to be a problem with the PDF as it won't print to fit the page. - 1/24/2013 9:08:31 AM
  • new years resolutions dont work because
    you are depriving yourself, they are negative
    make positive resolutions and they will stick
    like no more chocolate or no more bread ? i would sooner die
    instead- a piece of fruit with almond butter

  • It doesn't matter what year the calendar might be, what's important is what is written on it; ideas to help us reach our goals, encouragement.... wasn't designed to put appointments and birthdays on it. The days are all that matter 1 do what it says, day 2 follow that and so on. I like the calendar! Thanks Spark People. - 1/1/2012 11:03:20 PM
  • I like this calendar and shared the link on my blog. - 1/1/2012 7:26:58 PM
  • Love it! I shared it on FaceBook and Twitter. - 1/1/2012 4:21:30 PM
  • Is it just me or does anyone else think it might be nice if the dates were moved around to reflect the current year? To me this calendar is of no use whatsoever because you look at it where the day of the week is supposed to be and it's wonky. Imagine, it's 2007's calendar, after all. - 1/1/2012 1:09:14 PM
  • I printed this out and put it on my refrigerator! - 1/1/2012 8:41:30 AM
