Lose an additional 50 pounds (I've lost 24 since the end of August).

Finish my dissertation and graduate with a PhD and never do anything so idiotic again.

Usually its to lose weight - of course.

Or nothing bc resolutions usually get forgotten after a month bc if we really wanted to change we'd change now.

But this year I'm sick of the cycle. I'm sick of my body image issues and self hatred and the desire to lose weight, and the thought that clothes wont look good on me unless I'm tiny -

So -

My resolutions are to:

Give myself and my body as much credit as I give to other people

To be comfortable with my body

To stop cutting my hair in response to my insecurities and let it grow

To finally make an appointment with a PCP.

What kind of business? Maybe we can motivate each other? PM me!

More water/salad, give yoga (or the idea of yoga) a try and pay off my credit card (aka less shopping)...we'll see!

I was talking about this with someone recently that long lasting changes are usually as a result of some major event or catastrophe which is why resolutions never seem to work out. There is no real impetus behind them. Granted I just took Schumpeter's concept of creative destruction and applied it to real life, but it makes sense, at least to me.

Also, I saw this thing on FB that I think would be pretty awesome. Instead of resolutions, start with an empty jar and as you go through the year you write down good things that happen and drop them in the jar. That way at the end of 2013 (December 31st if you like) you can sit down and go through them. That way you focus on the positives and not the negatives.

That is a very nice idea.

Great idea kayb! I'm gonna do this.

I'm also starting my resolutions today by going out, which is something I never do. I want to be more social and open to new relationships. I've purged so much over the years that I've grown comfortable being a loner. I don't want to be a social butterfly or anything, just not a total hermit.lol So I'm going out tonight even though I really would just rather sit at home and eat ice cream.

Oh another resolution of mine. To join a choir, glee club, whatever. Right now, I'm just sitting on my talent (I'm sure the Creator is about ready to snatch it back from me...shame shame).

The other day I was singing in the store and a lady stopped me because she was wondering where it was coming from. She said I should audition for AI...I'm too old for that (and got other goals right now), but it made me feel good!

Yes, choir!

^^ I'm so jealous! I wish I could sing!

--------------------------------------------------

My goals are basically to be "better today than I was yesterday."

I want to try to be less harsh on myself (when I don't live up to my expectations) and be more understanding of those I encounter (especially those I love) and to eat more fruits and vegetables (gassiness be damned).

1. Work out at least 30 mins/day, 6 days a week

2. Revamp my eating habits. I want to focus more on vegetables and less on wheat products (which I love). I also want to cut out diary products for a little while to see what effect that has on my allergies.

3. Travel outside of the country.

4. Learn to play my guitar.

5. Write everyday.

6. Draw everyday.

7. Get a new job.

I will not buy new clothes, shoes, or jewelry this year. I will replace things but not buy something because it's cute or I just 'had to have it'. If I lose a necessity (gloves, sports bra) then I can replace those.

I'm already thinking about a luncheon I have to wear a hat to in May. Yikes...I hope I can borrow something cute.

I'm actually excited by challenging myself like this. I'll save some money but also become more creative with planning outfits from my existing wardrobe.

PS: In reading other reponses, I should give full disclosure to FB where I saw this - (don't want to be accused of plagarizing a resolution )

Congrats on the weight loss. I think that most people I know who got a doctorate gained weight so for you to have lost is a good thing. Way to go and get that dissertation done.

To keep exercising.

To lose the rest of the weight I have been struggling with, which will require me to eat even less I suspect.

To finish a novel

To concentrate on some non fiction writing. I would like to quit, or at least supplement, my day job. After 15 years, I still love the kids but I am burnt
out on the bureaucracy.

To be better about keeping in touch with people and promptly returning emails/calls.

To exercise regularly.

I also like the idea about the jar with notes about good things that happen. I might try to do that.

To finally convert to Orthodoxy - DH and I have been married seven years, and I've been meaning to convert since then.

To start doing yoga again and regain flexibility.

Chill out about my client who hates me and not let him get under my skin, no matter how much he complains.

Find a new face cleanser since PSF discontinued GCC.
