Now Serving Platterfuls of Second Chances: February Resolutions!

Not to bring up a sore spot, but as your resident Life, Happiness and Weight Loss Coach, I’ve been wondering how y’all are doing with your January resolutions? Are they working for you?
Often, we start the year off with the best of intentions, but the days melt into weeks and before we know it, we find ourselves in the middle of February not having fully followed through on our promises to ourselves. We’re left feeling disappointed, filled with remorse – feeling defeated, once again. Ugh. Such a pity party!
According to University of Scranton Professor of Psychology, John Norcross, about 75% of people who make resolutions are successful for a couple of weeks, and then be February 1, the number drops to 50% and so on.
AND THAT’S OKAY because truly this is a better time, a calmer time, a more balanced time, to step back, assess your situation, and set realistic goals. I consider January resolutions a warm up to the real thing. (Hey, did you see me post anything about January resolutions??? NO! I did not!!! Because I was busy warming up.)
NOW … having warmed up. Are you ready to move from a place of defeat and depression into victory and happiness?
Happiness is the key to everything, and I will tell you why. If you are NOT feeling happy with your life as a whole, it is very difficult to garner enough enthusiasm, drive and energy to make meaningful changes. You are on a downward spiral.
On the other hand, when you are feeling happy, you are more than likely filled with enthusiasm, possibility (I adore possibility) and energy, able to take on challenges of any magnitude, including happily saying “NO.” to the Devil’s Food!
We are entering a transitional time (not quite winter; not yet spring), which means that this is the perfect time to set reinvention and transformation into motion. This is the perfect time to set realistic goals that manifest feelings of happiness, which in turn will send us on an upward spiral.
The best place to start is by taking The Happiness Challenge. It’s free and easy and it will help you to take a good and honest look at your life.
So … let’s pause here. Take The Happiness Challenge. Let me know what your insights are. Maybe you’d like to start your “Upward Spiral Journey” by losing weight, maybe by improving relationships with loved ones, or maybe by having more fun! Yes, you can start moving forward simply by having fun!
Take the Happiness Challenge. Weigh-In On Your Next Steps!!
Spread the word … NOT the icing!

    Thanks yet again, OLWL, for reminding me not to have a pity party because of last month’s resolutions, and for the encouragement and kick-in-the-pants to re-start.

    I’m not sure,Janice for a weight loss plan right now,you re right im not soo feeling very happy,not because i am fat,im just feeling less enthusiastic maybe,and feeling very lazy always,maybe because that’s how it feels growing older,growing 40 years old,lol.yes,i think that is the reason,and i wish my enthusiasm will come back again,so i’ll be more positive,for now,i just wanna work and go home sleep,day by day,God will save me and im waiting to be back to my usual energy,sigh.thanks Janice.

    I realize this will probably just go to your blog, BUT…. sending out the Feb. edition of your blog on June 29 is a bit “strange” don’t you think??? I sure thought so… Can’t they keep us up to date…???
