Steve, New Year's resolutions fail because people fail to make them quantifiable.
"Resume working out and start eating right" might work for you, but it has a better chance if you add more detail. Like, for example, "get to the gym 3x per week" and "vegetables at least twice a day and desserts no more than once a day".
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience. -Henry Miller
I lost 80 pounds last year, after the hellish break-up, but I've managed to put back on about 25 "happy pounds." I've got to get them off! I even added Brian to my gym membership in hopes that we'll start going together. He's also put on about 20-30 pounds since we've been together (he blames that fact that I cook - LoL). We've yet to go. Ugh.

"Happiness is inward and not outward; it does not depend on what we have, but on who we are!"
You know, wizer, if you shaved your back, you could drop 30 lbs right then and there...
Brick walls are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop people who don't want it badly enough.
