Resolutions for 2014
They are always so hard to keep---easy to make, but always so hard to keep!! So, I am going to list just a few, hoping I can KEEP these!!
Actually lose from 6-8 lbs. I will work at this one by continuing my tracking of food everyday. It helps me become aware of just how much, or how little I am putting in my mouth. I will only weigh myself once a week, because if I do and gain, then I get disappointed and tend to get depressed, eat more, and tell myself, why not, as it does not help anyway.

To cut down again my smoking. I have successfully in 2013 cut that down to 5 a day. I would like to cut that down again to 2 or 3. I believe that is possible, as I do not enjoy smoking like I used to. In fact, it has gotten to the point where I can smell smoke on someone else, or if I even pass someone who is smoking. For me, that is a good sign, for that is how I was able to quit last time, many years ago.

These are the most important. Along with spending as much time with my Mom. Hopefully I will be able to stick to these resolutions. I will let you know next year!!

    emoticon goals! Just emoticon and I have no doubt you'll be able to loose weight. I've cut down on my smoking as well. Since I cleaned the house, there is emoticon in the house. When it's cold, I go out to our building in the back that has a gas heater. So far I'm down to about 5 a day, and when I'm in the house I chew Nicorette.
    I know how important it is to you to spend time with your mom, and I'm sure your visits please her a lot.

    All great goals. Tracking is what I joined SP for and it has been the most valuable of ALL the tools for me. My goal is 4 cigs a day...I've done really well except for 3 of 24 days and then it was only 5. Sounds like you have a great little group of goals and you will succeed!!

    You are wise to choose two things that are most important and focus on them. That makes so much sense. I am glad we are here to help each other along the way. emoticon emoticon

    A short list of goals is definitely the way to be able to achieve them. You sound so much like me about the weighing and then eating. Stay focused emoticon and I think your statement on the smoking is definitely a good thing. emoticon emoticon

    I too think it is fantastic having a short list of goals. It's easier to see achievment that way.

    Great job attempting to quit smoking. Wish my hubby would but as Golda Meir would say at my age should I worry..

    Those are good resolutions because you have some very manageable ones. Smoking is hard to stop so I commend you. emoticon I only weigh myself once a week and that's it. That's enough. Keep up the great work, Barb!! emoticon

    You should be so proud of yourself logging your food! Logging my food is the key for me!

    I agree that a short list of goals is easier to achieve than a long list that you can barely keep track of. Congrats on being so smart.
