I enjoy New Year's resolutions. Making positive changes and goals help us become better people. Of course we don't always meet those goals, but a large percentage of goals do get met.
Why wait until the end of each year to make a resolution? Treat the end of each month as an opportunity to set new goals for the coming month. These short term goals from month to month are easier to keep. Each of these smaller goals can add up quickly.
Losing weight over an entire year is hard. Losing weight each month is still hard, but easier to keep on track. Use each month end to evaluate your healthy eating habits. Each month beginning make the resolution to do better than last month.
It is also proven that goals (resolutions) that are written down and viewed often will produce better results.

Good luck in 2008.
