I know this is probably a stupid question since most of us are sick and can't do much but maybe there is something small you'd like to do or change.

I'd like to try to be more positive about getting better.

I'd still love to lose some weight. I think I may try to get on my treadmill even if I drag my feet and walk maybe five minutes. I'll probably be able to walk longer on my good days.

I would love to start taking stray cats in again and adopting them out to a good home. I know I can't do this right now but I'm hoping it will be in the near future.

And last but not least, I want to get better so that I can go back to school. I miss being in the medical field and I miss being able to help
others.

I know these are probably not real New Years resolutions and maybe closer to "goals", but this is a list of things I want to be able to do in 2010!!

I never make resolutions because if I do not meet them, I get very bummed out!

Happy 2010 to all our HW members.

Remember, be careful and do not drink and drive tonight! Any night for that matter.

Okay, normally I don't make any resolutions but this year I have (and I already started!).  I plan on losing more weight, yeah!  I did start a common sense Atkins diet and already lost over 10 pounds and plan on losing more!   I still have lyme fat (does that make sense?) plus going through menopause most certainly does not help.

There are pedal exercisers that you just put in front of your chair, that might be easier for those of us who have trouble walking on a treadmill.

Here's a description:
A Pedal exerciser is a perfect alternative to traditional stationary bikes because they are portable, easier-to-use, and offer more variety because you can place it on a table to use it with your hands.

A Pedal exerciser can be used for upper and lower body exercises to improve circulation, muscle strength, joint range of motion, and coordination. Pedal exercisers are convenient, affordable, time efficient, and a perfect home exercise accessory.

Use it to increase strength and improve coordination and circulation. Because they are compact and lightweight you can take it on trips, place it on a table for use with your hands, easily move it from room to room or outside, and it can be stored in many places.

Yeah, I don't bother with New Year's resolutions either...can't seem to keep them anyway. Good luck to those of you who are making resolutions. Congrats on the weight loss, Deejavu!

I don't usually make resolutions. Whenever things went wrong in my life when I was younger, my mother would always say, "Don't worry dear, it all builds character." And I would ask, "And what exactly am I going to do with all this character?" Well, I found out -- it 's for fighting Lyme disease. This year I am resolving to scrape what character I have left in the corners of my coffers of will and I am going to beat this disease. This year. I have a whole lot of fun, active, creative things I want to do yet and I am not going live with my couch as the center of my world. So there. smilewinkgrin
