Talking One year at it - results and resolutions

Happy anniversary to me! I started trying to lose weight exactly a year ago. Many ups and downs and I learned a lot along the way.
Do not despair if you do not lose for example.
Do not let a bad day become a bad week or escalate to a bad month. If you need a break, try to maintain. (I did these last two months and I survived the holidays without gaining)
Eat differently. Eat better.
Exercise. Move more in general.
Plan. I find that if I plan what I eat (and stick to it), I have the best results. Record things, what you eat, goals, recipes, ideas, affirmations and read them in times of weakness.
Do new things to excite you!

Things that happened in 2012
I lost 44 pounds.
I graduated C25K
I became wiser
I found 3FC an immense help
I quit smoking for about 5 months (started again)
I stopped feeling as tired as I did when I was heavier, out of shape
I cooked some amazing new things
I got rid of 'fat' clothes

Things that will happen in 2013
I will lose as much as I can - preferably reach goal
I will run 2 5Ks - Who knows maybe I will train for bigger distances
I will quit smoking again
I will feel even better
I will eat healthy, nutritious and tasty food
I will save more money
I will buy new fabulous clothes


Thanks to all the people here for the inspiration!
Success is dependent on effort. - Sophocles

That is wonderful, congratulations on all of the goals you achieved last year! As far as smoking goes, I have been there when I quit for a while and ended up picking it back up for a while. But you can quit for good and never look back. It's hard, but that will contribute to your overall health and feeling better about yourself and everything! I love your goals for 2013, I am wanting to run a 5K and a 10K this year!

Fantastic!! I love your attitude. Smoking is my downfall as well, one minute at a time, I try to do a 3 minute booty/hip/get up and move dance when I'm seriously craving a smoke, so it's a two-fer effect. I don't smoke and I cop an extra 3-5 minutes of movement.

Congrats Kitchenella!! Sticking with it is definitely the most important victory of all, and everything else will happen as a result. And congrats on C25k too! That and all of the rest of your list - so many things to be very, very proud of!
