Top 10 Resolutions NOT to Make


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- We all like to think of ourselves as individuals, but our new years resolutions tend to be pretty much the same -- lose weight, save money, quit smoking.

Keeping them almost never happens. This year, we thought we'd help you rise to the top, by crossing these resolutions off your list before the New Year begins.

Here are the Top Ten Resolutions NOT to Make, with help from "The Frisky".

#1 -- Find love. Love doesn't exactly follow a schedule. Instead, resolve to try new things, or even let your friend set you up with the guy she's been talking about.

#2 -- Lose five pounds. Instead of setting a number, vow to eat better or join a fitness class.

#3 -- Quit obsessing about, whatever it is you're obsessing about.  Be it an ex-girlfriend or an argument you had with your boss  -- saying you'll quit obsessing about it just makes you think about it more!

#4 -- Have a baby. That's not exactly something you can easily plan, and putting pressure on yourself may make it more difficult.

#5 -- Quit your job. Unless you have another one lined up, that is. In case you haven't heard, the economy isn't doing so well.

#6 -- Get married. Marriage is a life-long commitment, not something you want to push your significant other into so you can meet a deadline.

#7 -- Quit dating. It didn't work for Kim Kardasian, and it's not going to do any good for you either.

#8 -- Try to get along better with ____. This one is like losing weight. Unless you have a detailed plan to improve your rocky relationship, it's not going to happen.

#9 -- Stop watching trashy TV. Tara Thomas will tell you herself -- it's entertaining, and really, who does it hurt?

#10 -- Win the lottery. Yes, someone will always win, but you're better off putting your dollars in a savings account. Think about it this way -- save a dollar a week and by this time next year you'll have saved enough by a fabulous bottle of champagne to ring in 2012.
