Everyone is welcome - you don't need to have been a part of the previous challenge to participate.

Post your 2013 New Year's resolution. If you don't make resolutions and want to make a goal, that's fine too. It doesn't have to be a specific weight or a specific size but it does have to be SPECIFIC (i.e. Don't write "I want to be healthier." If you want to improve your health, how are you going to measure that? Do you want a specific blood pressure range? Do you want to be able to run a mile nonstop? etc).

Next you're going to write what you're going to do from Labor Day to Columbus Day to make that happen! That's 6 weeks. What will you do for the next 6 weeks of 2013? How will you make your resolution happen?

Copy and paste this format. You'll be coming back each week to update your progress (find the entry and click edit). And this thread will be available for us to chat about the challenge, overcome struggles and celebrate successes.

This is a great idea, and though late to the game, I would like to join!

2013 Resolution: I am the Queen of Quitting, I never seem to make it more than 3 months on plan... my resolution for the rest of the year is to stay on plan for it.. that is 4 months, one month longer than I ever seem to be able to stay on plan. What is my plan? Calorie counting, a minimum of 30 minutes exercise every. single. day. and drinking 4 of my big bottles of water.

From Labor Day to Columbus Day, my resolution is: Simply to stay on plan (see above). I would love to see a number in the 250s before the end of this segment.
