I am determined to quit white bread of all kinds, and M&Ms out of my life.  My plan is to replace the White bread with Grain bread and will only have one serving 3 days a week the other 4 days will be an extra banana. As far as the M&M (which are not even good) and other kinds of junk Chocosnacks they will be completely out of my life. 

 

What is your new year resolution ?


 

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

I'm sorry, I lied. I forgot about the total shoulder replacement I am having in the next few months. That shoulder isn't working too well. 

 

Okay then, my total shoulder replacement is my New Year's resolution.

I already said on another thread my resolution is to be less awesome but I seem to break my resolutions every year :laughbounce:

Oh and I gotta put my big girl panties on and schedule my hand surgery. Actually that's a resolution I think I can keep :)

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

Mine is to keep up on laundry.  It's only me, my wife, and a 3 year old and I have a whole room dedicated to dirty clothes that need to be laundered!  :)

Ouch !  That is some surgery. On the positive side, at least that procedure can be done now.

Wow!  I had shoulder surgery about six years ago, and during my post-surgical PT, I met a guy who had shoulder replacement surgery.  I thought it was absolutely amazing that they were able to do this kind of surgery, given the incredible complexity of the shoulder (versus, for instance, the more common joint replacements like knee or even hip).  He had a really good outcome, BTW.

The three Ws!

Sounds like a good plan Nancy.

 

When an illness is declared is always a consequence of a long process of neglecting our health maintenance, it takes years of intake of the wrong things, or years of ignoring the good ones to develop health problems. With that in mind, not because you feel ok today means you will feel the same down the road. I feel like a million bucks most days, but I know for sure that too much intake of high carbs and gluten will eventually get me sick beyond the point of repair, therefore my resolution to cut some breads and chocojunk for now. 

 

I will be a social bread eater  :roll:
