Did Anyone Make Any New Year's Resolutions Back in January?

I was just wondering how you were doing, if you did. It seems like every year, lots of people will make New Year’s resolutions, but sometimes by the end of January, or even before that, those resolutions have been forgotten. I was just wondering if anyone was still sticking to their resolutions? I didn’t make any myself, but someone mentioned theirs to me today and said she was still “watching her weight.” The problem was her weight hasn’t changed, but she’s still watching it. LOL I had a good laugh with her.

I learned that perhaps the easiest way to lose weight is to not think about how many pounds you need to lose. What you should concentrate on is losing just 10% of your weight at a time. For instance, Let's say a person weighs 200 pounds and wants to weigh 130. Instead of thinking about the 70 pounds you need to lose, concentrate on just 10 %, which is 20 pounds Once you accomplish that goal, celebrate and then move on to the next goal. If you lost 20 pounds successfully, you now weigh 180 pounds. So the next goal is to lose 10% of that weight, which would only be 18 pounds. Now, you would weigh 162 pounds and 10% of that is only about 16 pounds. Once you lose the 16 pounds, you would only weigh 146. Fourteen more pounds and you have almost reached your goal of 130 pounds. So, this method allows you to see QUICK results and its very encouraging. Each time you lose weight, you have LESS weight to lose on the next round.
