That's a good list. I'll be concentrating on #1. I know I'm not drinking enough water recently.

I jumped on the scale today with fear in my heart. I'm happy to report that I haven't gained a pound over the Christmas holiday. I realize this is not a maintenance thread though but I gotta celebrate just a bit.

Congrats to Darius for losing over the holiday

Yeah Lizzie, that is good news. You won't have any extra work then to begin the New Year!

Happy New Year Renee!!! Thanks. Are you staying up late? This is going to be the big New Year for us. This is the year that we will make it happen. Can you feel the change starting? It begins 1 January 2014. That's right. The year that slim and trim became the new shape for you and me.

Happy New Year Darius, Lizzie, Deelou! Let's keep those scale numbers moving downward. Darius has been keeping the momentum going, so let's jump in on his trail and follow suit. We can all do this together. It will be a Happy New Year for all of us.

It's Day 1 for me now. I weighed in this morning and saw that I have gone up 3 more pounds. So now I am starting off at 145 for the New Year. I am really going to try hard this time around. My goal is to lose the 25 pounds by 1 June. So that is 5 lbs a month. That should be doable.

I went for a 1 hour walk this morning with my dog. It was at a casual pace. Next was breakfast which is very important to the start of my day. Yes, I am thinking thin, thinking thin, .......thinking thin my friends.

Yes, I will be staying up...my husband and I will watch the ball drop in Times Square, NY at midnight. I'm not going to weigh in until Saturday, so I can stay on my usual weigh-in day. I know I have gained over the past few months... weigh-in is not going to be pretty But, it's a new year and we will drop the pounds and get healthier.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year Corinna, Renee, and Lizzie; I think that this will be a good year. If everything works out OK I will complete my diet goals this year and be into maintenance.

Thanks Deelou, You will be super jealous: I got an Ohio State snuggly for Christmas. I went to Cleveland State & Kent State - but I am a fan of the Bucks. Everyone loves a winner!

Happy New Year!

Hi Corinna! Hope you are well.

I've lost a few pounds over the last several months. Very slowly. Instead of concentrating on pounds during January, I'm going to concentrate on:

Exercising every day - cardio, stretching/yoga and weight bearing for 31 days

Keeping my calories to maximum of 1500 for 31 days

I am going to try to not weigh myself until January 31. Focus is on health and not poundage. I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi Kris!!! So glad to see you back here. I thought about sending you a private message, but didn't want to pester you. It has been some time. I'm glad to see that you are seriously making changes for better health and have lost a few pounds. Sounds like you have a good plan in place. I hope to see you on here more often so we can support you on that effort and hear about your success. Happy New Year!!

Hi Marian! You fit into our group perfectly...welcome. We look forward to sharing/supporting each other during the New Year to reach our diet goals. We usually weigh-in each Saturday, but we do try to correspond during the week to keep each other motivated and provide support when needed. Looking forward to sharing with you too. Happy New Year!

Welcome Marian!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! Good wishes to you all in 2014. I hope you meet all your goals.

Corinna - I wish I was starting at 145. Thanks for your encouragement.

Some of my goals - become a success story and kick menopause and thyroid issues in the butt, drink more water, mix in some IF, do pilates (mat) several times a week and daily stretching, walking more when my foot cooperates.

Have a great day!!
