In 2010 I made a short list of goals that I wanted to achieve during the year. I've come to realize that I am terrible at completing goals. Even my own. I end up focusing on one, the one that is most plausible and forget about the rest.

A few examples:

"Read. A lot!"

I read a total of ten books this year. Eight of those were rereads. I tried to read three books that I gave up on halfway through due to complete boredom. 

"Make more videos than I did in 2009"

I made four. That's pathetic. I get a green screen for Christmas and I make only four videos?!

You get the point. I did work really hard one of those goals though.

"Continue to lose weight."

I lost 33 pounds this year. (44 pounds total since I started losing weight in December 2009.) I call that an incredible achievement! My original goal was 170 pounds. I'm less than that now. (My new goal is 155. I think that's where I'll feel happiest.)

So this year, I am not setting goals. This year I am simply going to name the things I hope happen this year. Things that I am looking forward to, things that I would love to happen, but won't beat myself up if I don't accomplish.

Things that I'm excited for:

Reaching my goal weight! 
(This is my only goal. I WILL do it. Less than 15 pounds to go!)

Reading new books and old favorites!

Working hard!

Possibly moving to Las Vegas!

New and old relationships!

Family events!

Blog changes!

A brand new year!

It's going to be wonderful! I am determined to make it so!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Good luck with your weight loss goal. You look wonderful! Also, have fun achieving your ambitions. I spoke with Aly yesterday and she mentioned (after I asked how you were doing) that you were probably moving to Las Vegas. How exciting! Happy New Year!

That's awesome. Let's do the book thing together this year! We can read and then share the titles with one another :) I want to read as much as possible this year!

I'm always impressed when people have the determination to meet their goals - you are a role model!
