A new leaf.

New Year's resolutions...I definitely have a love-hate relationship with that concept. I love to make them, and almost never keep them. I think it's because I feel like if I'm making a "resolution" it needs to be BIG. And then the first time I backslide, I don't just fall off the wagon, I jump off it with both feet and go screaming in the opposite direction.
However. I am starting 2009 weighing more than I EVER have. In my life. Including during all three pregnancies. So, something's gotta give. I am Biggest Loser material, and I'm setting a terrible example for my children.
I'd like to say I'm going to stop biting my nails and become more organized as well, but I don't think I can set myself up for that kind of failure, know what I mean? I'm going to TRY to do those things, but I AM going to lose this weight. I have to.

Gretchen - thanks for commenting on my SCL post today. I'm happy to clutter your life with one more thing! I know I've seen you around SCL and lurked around your blog a bit, but it's nice to make your acquaintance. God bless in your resolutions and happy blogging!

I'm with you on that. I weigh more than I ever have in my life, and have not had any children.
