No more resolutions!

I've never been a big fan of making New Year's resolutions. It's like making a promise you never intend to keep. Each year I would tell myself, I'll lose 5 or 10 pounds or I'll pay off that credit card. Those were always my two resolutions: lose a little weight and pay off a little debt. This year is no different. I still want to lose another 15-20 lbs and it never hurts to pay off a little more debt, especially when you're staring down the barrel of a recently finished Master's degree. 

As of last week, I had lost a total of just over 20 lbs in 14 weeks. While the holiday season was very good to me, I knowingly made bad food and drink choices that pretty much negated my fantastic loss last week. Of the 3 lbs I lost last week, I gained back 2.8 lbs this week. I knew it was coming, so it was no shock. All I can do is recommit myself and buckle down to get to my goal weight by April. 

So no resolutions this year...... I don't want to make resolutions when I know that I should be striving for excellence in all areas of my life. As far as I'm concerned, I've made a lifestyle change, not a resolution. 

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and I wish you all a healthy, happy New Year!!

Well, you still ending up with a -.2 loss, right? I like your comment that you've "made a lifestyle change, not a resolution." That's how we should all think!

Happy New Year!
