Happy New Year!

Now is the time to plan out your New Years Resolutions... and then Stick To Them! You are worth it, so don't give up on yourself!
About 3 years ago I made a resolution to become a Healthy Weight for my body type, and I worked at it. I lost almost 100lbs (97lbs to be exact) over the next 2 years, and the last year I have been working at maintaining the healthy weight. I am worth it, so I am not going to give up on myself and let myself gain back any of the weight.
What I want you all to do is to make a resolution, and then stick to it! If you want to be the best that you can be, take it one step at a time and narrow your goals down into manageable steps.
For Example, For loosing weight I broke it up into many different steps that took years,
  • Find out what is my Ideal/Healthy body weight
  • Count Calories and Log Food
  • Lose 20lbs
  • Cut Out Soda
  • Get some Exercise Every Day
  • Work on Self Esteem
  • Cut Out Fast Food
  • Lose 20 more lbs
  • Eat More Nutritious Foods
  • Lose 20 more lbs
  • Be Adventurous and Try New Foods
  • Research More about healthy weight loss and keeping weight off
  • Lose 20 more lbs
  • Eat Less Candy/Sugar
  • etc.
These steps sometimes came easy, and other times I had to work really hard at them. But I didn't ever give up (even when I had slip-ups) because I knew I was worth it. I wanted to be healthier and happier, so I did what I could in order to make it a reality.
What I'm trying to say is, Set a Goal, then work on it until it becomes reality.

My Resolution this year is to let things go. I want to be able to stop holding onto things that hurt me and not let things ruin my mood as often.
