Welcome to 2007

It's that magical time of year when we feel as if we get a whole new slate to scribble our sometimes hectic and messy lives all over. During the next few days several of use, myself included, will try and come up with some sort of list, mentally or actually written down, that gives a primitive outline of things we want to accomplish this year or things we want to see done (The vast majority of use will have losing weight as one of them).

If you have not made a list, or perhaps you are one of those who do not make a list of New Year Resolutions, then dare to live on the edge- do so! You may not lose the weight, slow life down a little, or pray everyday like you want to; however, failure is hardly the point. All of life is accomplished with minor changes in direction.

Set some goals. Come up with some things that you want to see happen this next year. Even if you accomplish only one, you are one step closer to the person you want to be. I have included an 'official' list of the top 10 New Year Resolutions for Americans.

Top-Ten New Year's Resolutions
Spend more time with family and friends
Find time for a workout
Lose Weight
Slow Down
Quit Drinking
Get out of Debt
Learn Something New
Volunteer Somewhere
Get Organized

If you need a little more convincing to join the 'resolution club' read this article by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson. He makes a very good case for resolutions. Happy New Year to all of you!

Happy New Year! I aim to fulfill everyone of those resolutions in 2007...the drinking might be a problem! LOL. I really like Diet Coke, Diet Dr. Pepper, tea, water.....

Love the post! I will have to say my resolution would be a tie. It's either losing more weight or just trying to find more time to relax (whatever that is!).
