    If you have made resolutions in the past did you keep to them as it is said the majority give up on them by the end of January

    Mine is to stick with it - now in healthy weight range, although could afford to lose a few more pounds, and to keep my hbac1 at 33 .this was my pre Christmas result and best pressie ever especially as no medication for past two months. Happy new year everyone this site has been so helpful to me in achieving good health thank you all. Can’t believe when diagnosed had hbac1 at 97!

    I haven’t made any resolutions for years. But I have good reason to make my resolutions above this year, to stay healthy!

    I'm looking to lose a stone and drink a lot less alcohol. I've actually started on this already, but the new year is a good marker to count from.

    Good luck everyone!

    Not so much a resolution but a medical need. I WILL get my levels sorted, I WILL stick to LCHF and I WILL lose the last 4 stone. I WILL come onto this site every day to stay motivated.

    Happy new year to you all.

    I normally take time out over the holiday period to re-evaluate the "dynamics" regarding those I work with..
    Then respectfully cut them loose in the new year...

    I'd like to...

    * Discover self-control. I'm sure it must be there somewhere.
    * Reach 12 stone.
    * Experience love.

    There's actually a lot more but, you know, one at a time...

    Last year I resolved not to make any new years resolutions and I stuck to it. I intend to do the same this year.
