So how do you enter?

1. Like the Lose Weight by Eating Facebook page.

2. Go to the New Year’s Resolution Event page. and RSVP to attend.

3. Share your New Year’s Resolution. You want it to be measurable, ongoing and reasonable (see more about this below) on the Event page.

4. Invite 2 or more friends to the event.

Tips on a good New Year’s Resolution:

  • Measurable, you will want to be able to measure it throughout the new year.
  • Ongoing, you want something that does not have an expiration date, the traditions resolution ” losing 10 lbs” is not ongoing.
  • Reasonable, don’t set out to do something that is so outrageous it is impossible to achieve it. Going to the gym 7 days a week for instance, if you are already not going this is not a good resolution.

Here are two examples, my 2011 and 2012 personal resolutions:

2011- Feed myself and my family more whole grains.

  • I could measure it, how often did I go for whole grains vs white.
  • It was ongoing, and we are still at it
  • It was reasonable, it was a small change that I knew I could master and did.

2012- Shop at the Farmer’s Markets at least once a month.

  • It’s measurable, once a month.
  • It’s ongoing, no expiration date. Going to Farmer’s markets 12 times a year would have an expiration… get it?
  • It was certainly reasonable and in fact I often went more than once a month!

Both of these resolutions have changed my life for the better, they are now just part of my life and helped me make a small easy step to a healthier lifestyle.

How will the winner be chosen? My intern will pick 15, remove the names from the resolutions and send them to me numbered. I will whittle it down from there the first, second and third prizes. A few people got “Extra Credit” points and they will not be one of the 15, but added into the pile after the 15 have been chosen.

I lost 150 lbs in just one year! Find out how I did it and how others are losing up to 12 lbs a week, click the picture to find out how to Lose Weight By Eating!
