I decided to make a list of 10 things I want to change about myself, and here it is:
1) No more lying to people.
2) No more fast food.
3) No more energy drinks.
4) Mile run every morning.
5) Become vegetarian.
6) Be more calm.
7) Get a 4.0.
8) Start listening better.
9) No more talking badly about people.
10) Be confident, not cocky.

It's not going to happen in a day, and I know that. My expectations are high, but I don't want a temporary change, I want a lifestyle change.

honestly i'm pretty happy with myself other than a few things. ten things really will be a stretch.

lose weight - at 6'1"-ish i really should be 180-190 not 250. i do want to be around as my nearly three year old boy and unborn child grow up.
procrastinate less - i'm far from a type a personality and i don't want to be one, but there are times i just have to get off my butt.
get organized - goes hand-in-hand with the one before this. i've tried PDAs, notebooks, etc - not much works for me yet.
get more serious about art again - i majored in art in college and have been artistic my whole life (photography, design, sculpture, writing, drawing); ended up as a computer operator and server support... feh.

that's pretty much it at this point. of course there are things on my want to do/see list, like watch citizen kane, but i don't put that in the same catagory.

Brendan, Def #2 for me- No More Fast Food. Cholesterol issues are very prominent in my family and I deal with it daily. I eat fast food or junk food and I feel clogged up so to speak.

1. Exercise more often
2. Stop procrastinating (see how this fits into the first one? )

Other than that, I'm pretty happy with myself.

Don't have 10 things, but here's my list:

1. Lose weight. I've gained so much weight in the past few years due to an unhealthy diet. Need to be back where I was a few years back.
2. Go to the gym & start running
3. Quit smoking

That's pretty much it for now. I'm happy with everything else.

Definitely. Quitting smoking is the hardest habit I've ever tried to break. It's so gross and bad for you, but you keep on wanting one. **** nicotine. :x

Good stuff. Good luck with it. I need to do the same. My target weight w/ muscle mass is going to be around 185. I'm 205 now.

Let's see...

1. procrastinate less: I sometimes leave things to the very end to do.
2.help around the house more: ex. wash dishes, do laundry, vaccum,etc..
3.Get over my fear of driving: I don't like driving too far out. I only drive in my city and the city next door. It drives my b/f nuts!!

Oh ok here are a few things I'd likeHave a to change about myself:

1. Procrastinate less.

2. Stop my compolsive hording. Only with cds mind you. But now I have so many singles and albums I have to to a giant leap over the mountain of music to get to my bed so I can get some sleep.

3. Remove my bags. Yeah I can blame my imac for this one haha. More likely my lack of will power to turn it off and get some good sleep. More sleep. Less mac. I know it'll be hard but I think my body needs it.

4. Have a stable weight. Well now I am 178 cm tall (or 5"9 I think) and I weigh around 55 KG or (122 of your US pounds i think.) A little skinny? I dunno. I just want something healthy.

5. Finish the book I am writing and try to get it published

6. Beat my fear of crowds

Umm that's about it for now.

Good luck with that. I decided to be a vegetarian before I turned 24. I quit for a month after a whole year of not eating meat (I was always so tempted.) Since I quit for that month back in January, I haven't had the desire for one bite. It's a great way to live but don't think you'll lose a lot of weight doing it. In the beginning you will lose a significant amount if you are "bigger person" but a some of it will be gained back over time.

A few things I would like to change:
1. Have a little more patience with my kitten. (He really needs to calm down though)
2. Stop snacking from the vending machine at work. ($.75 for a Snickers is over the top!)
3. Keep my studio a little cleaner.
4. Quit spending all my money on my iBook projects. (I buy broken iBooks on eBay, fix them and resell them. my gf would probably like to take her out sometime soon)
5. Save some money for a new HDTV and to have some body work done to my car. (It has 2 little rust spots and it's about 4 shades or Milano Red)
6. Eat a little better
7. Exercise (i don't right now *boo*)

I only been smoking for 4 years, the most I went without a smoke was 1 week, but then I went back.

At least am not chain smoking any more, which I guess is 1 step in the right direction
