I've never made any and do not ever intend to do so. Just like if I ever decided to quit smoking....I'd never say a word about it.

My New Years Resolution: to stay home on new years day, eat good food and be a couch potato. Yay - one goal met this year already! Starting off the year with success - woohoo!

Sometimes just having a secret can spur you to try new things. It is a personal thing that only you need to know about. That way if you don't suceeed the first time you don't have do gooders telling you how you should have tackled it better. Tell no-one and just do it in your own time when you are ready!!!
