Thread: So who here has stuck by your New Years Resolutions ?

    So who here has stuck by your New Years Resolutions ?

    I remember a thread that was started about this topic.Thought it would be interesting to see who has stuck by it & see who will check themselves IF not.

    I for 1 need to check myself.
    I stated I wanted to get back in the gym & also stop smoking....Neither has happened.I have slowed down quit a bit on the cigs,BUT still no gym
    People sleep peaceably in their beds @ night ONLY because rough men stand ready to do VIOLENCE
    on their behalf.....

    I did stick to my new year resolution - that is not to make any. Haha. Sorry, couldn't help it.

    On a more serious note, I have to admit I did go off tangent over the last two weeks with my resolution. This is a good "wake-up" call to stay back in track. Thanks for the reminder!

    Sort of. I didn't make any resolutions, per se, that were to begin precisely on New Year's Day, but I did make a committment to lose weight and stop smoking in a measured, sensible way. So far, I've cut my smoking in half (half-pack a day down to 1/4 pack a day), and dropped 6 pounds and 1". However, my long-time travelling companions Anxiety and Depression have dogged every step of the way, making it a real struggle.
    But I haven't bought any new watches after the three I bought after saying I wasn't going to buy any more!

    Well, three of you already used my answer (resolved not to make any and stuck with it!). But actually, resolved to buy my home. Sort of cheating, because I already had a signed deal, was just waiting to close and did. But sometimes things happen, so in fact we did get it done. Other things I want to accomplish this year (wt. loss is a BIG one) but not ties to New Years resolution at all.

    ETA: Umm... Shouldn't this thread be in the Lounge?
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    I made 2:
    1) to read a book written before 2000 for every one I read written after it I've done very well at this
    2) to write another novel - failing miserably at this so far
