Starting the new year off right

It's important to create solid, measurable goals.  Something vague like "I want to lose weight" just won't really work.  "I want to lose 30 pounds, weigh 135, and have a 24 inch waistline" is solid and measurable.

It's so easy to become addicted to weight loss.  My goal is to achieve a healthy weight (for my height and frame, that's between 120 and 140).  I've set my goal at 135 so that I have "space" for backsliding and weight gain.  I understand that I'll work at maintaining a healthy weight for quite some time to come.

I intend to do this through both good nutrition and fitness. 

What are your goals for the new year?
