View Full Version : Any new year's resolutions yet??

December 27th, 2006, 09:27 AM

I took your question from last evening's post, as I think it makes a great new thread.

I want to include in my fitness goals, a decent weight loss goal. At first, I thought a goal of feeling better and increased stamina was sufficient, but now, why not? Of course, AF, helps a bunch, but I find it too easy to substitute other sugars for being "good."

So here it is, my goal for 2007, is to reach and maintain a weight of ___lbs ( I know what it is, but all of you can fill-in your own.

Great job on 60AF! I'm coming up on 30, and I think my 1stAF goal will be to reach 60 days.

Hey Capto..thanks for the (almost) 60 day congrats!

I have almost always followed thru on my new year's resolutions so I am going to have to put some thought into it and think about what I can really do.
I think it will be health related (mental and physical!) but I want to think about it first.
I like yours though - 60 days AF would be a great one! It has certainly changed my life for the better.

Ok...I'll check back later..

So far the only one I can think of that I'm certain I will be able to accomplish, is that I'll finish off that fresh loganberry pie that's still in the fridge!:H Hopefully, I'll be able to at least save a few bites for my Honey!

OK, back to the stair master, to work off the last piece I had...:alf: :banana: :danthin:

Hi. Well I would like to begin an exercise routine of some sort. Pilates is what I plan to start with and get down to a weight of 140...currently well over 170. Then to be AF for a month (I am just starting out). I plan to travel (going to Hilton Head to a Disney Resort in Feb) and be able to get in the pool for swim lessons for my baby and son with autism. Right now..FORGET ABOUT IT

Sorry about the headache...


Lush ya have to keep in mind, I lived in a tree for 18 years w/no running water... So this computer stuff is pretty amazingly entertaining! Trust me it could be worse!

Hi Everybody! I hope it is ok if I post my "fitness goals" here, as I seek moderation and not AF as my ultimate goal. I have been planning ahead for my 2007 goals and for Christmas I received all the new Perricone books. So I will be reading on nutrition, health care, and exercise over the holiday. Alcohol-wise, I am hopeful, that I will again be able to continue to decrease to always stay within a balance between AMA and the French Scientific Foundation on wine alcohol consumption.

I'm really excited about my new program. I also had my husband dig out and put new batteries in my electronic weight watchers calculator, as it really helps to calcluate nuitrition, calories, fat, and water intake.

I have been looking forward to this program for some time. I've been following Dr. Perricone for a long time, but some of the new ingredients, I don't even recognize!!! Hope this workds out.

Love New Years Resolution stuff!!!

Take care to all,

Ok I think I'm ready for my resolutions now. And Jude....I love your emoticons...I kind of look like the smiley face when I dance ...which is why I don't.

ok back to resolutionss:
1. Get to 25% body fat - currently at 31%
2. lose down to 130 (8lbs) and stay there
3. start dating ( hardest and scariest of all) - don't even want to put this one down but here it is anyway..yikes
4. pay off my credit card and make an actual budget (try living within my means!)

Don't know if I can do these but I'll give it my best shot.

Good luck to everyone...btw sj- did you manage to finish that pie?
not powerless- best of luck with your pilates
capto - you are doing great- 60af...can't wait to celebrate with you when you get there!
MM- I'm excited for you that you got those books - please keep us posted on that I'm very interested.
Lush...ahem..didn't see a resolution in there.. :)

Hope you are all well-

Anyone else?

Darn it I was hoping you would not notice. Okay here goes:

Starting at 3-4 days AF a week, working up from there
Taking the supps religiously which I have not been doing
Start doing Pilates 2-3 times a week
Continue with weight training
Take my dog out for a brisk walk when it is not raining. Currently we run him in our backyard which expends no energy on my part.

There, now I said it and I will do it......

December 29th, 2006, 07:31 PM
Bravo Lush!!! Good ones. Doggie will be happy he made the list too :)

now how do we keep ourselves accountable for these?
should we report out once a week/month?

Not sure how I'm going to report out on the dating thing.

Hello all
I'm new here!!!Great to hear all your new year resolutions. My first is to lose weight (think most people have that one!). My second is for me to go back to work after being a housemother for 1 1/2 years - that should be challenging. My third and actually most important is to moderate my drinking or even better to stop. Don't know which one yet!!
Can I also say everybody on this site seems to have such a good sense of humour. I have never laughed so much in a long time.

Well Lisa, I'm proud to say I haven't finished that pie yet! But if Hubby doesn't help out soon it's gonna have to be tossed out... that would be such a waist!(pun intended). But they are home grown berries even! And my Sis in Law makes the best pie in the world!

:welcome: Seto. Good luck with going back to work. What are you looking at doing? You can have one of my jobs!:goodjob:

Let's see, resolutions... well of course I could always loose a few pounds. I seem to have this little gut that I've never had before. I think it's the over 45 thing, & gravity wearing on me!
At work last night I was told not to be so defensive... so maybe I should work on that. (But it wasn't MY fault!! LOL)

I need to get more of a structured routine to my exercise program. Instead of just popping on & off of the equipment thru out the day. I guess the word would be more self discipline... wish me luck with that!

Listen to CD's more often

And a lot more water, and less wine & Tilt. Although I have been suprising myself thru the holidays. (probably just jinxed myself by writing that):confused:

Two main resolutions here:

Others include:

Listen more, talk less
Do well in my studies and practise what I am learning (naturopathy) in my own life
Learn to love myself
Laugh more
Be at peace
Be positive
Love my husband and show him that in actions and words


December 30th, 2006, 09:09 PM
I think we have some really top rate resolutions here!

I think you are right Paula - now we have some help with keeping them too

Louie - I need to steal one of yours - "be positive". That helps with all the others.

I'm going to the gym in the morning. Goal is 25 min on eliptical and crunches until I can't stand it.
And I'm signing up with an online dating service tonight - a reputable one ( if there is such a thing)
Please wish me luck with that one. I have not been out on a first date in almost 10 years!!

Can't believe I'm even doing this!! yikes.
Now I have to go buy "date clothes" I didn't even know that was a thing. A friend of my said that and then I mentioned it to someone I work with (she is 23 ) and she got all excited and said "ohhhh...yea date clothes...please let me go with you!! I love date clothes"
All new to me....
Have a lovely evening all of you much:h

December 30th, 2006, 09:23 PM
Hey Lisa,

Good luck with the date clothes!!!!
