Editor's note: Congrats to @kdkdkd, Kristin Kaufmann, and Nancy Sloan for winning this contest!

I love New Year's resolutions. The idea that you get to reinvent yourself is such a wonderful concept.

What are your resolutions for 2011? Are you going for big changes or setting smaller, more realistic goals? Will you be tackling a health problem or try to be mindful of your finances?

Share your ideas and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

My #1 resolution is to organize my house!

My resolution is to get more exercise.

My resolutions, or goals if you will, are to keep losing weight (that's been a bit tougher over the holidays, and I've still got a good 40 pounds to go) and to blog every day and work hard to build my followers. I know that's not a lot, but if I can accomplish those two things, I'll be happy.

My plan is to get myself out of debt by working two jobs until I can't do it anymore. I am 65 years old so I hope to do this until I am 70. My other goal is to finally accept the fact that I will never be thin again and just deal with t he body I have now. Those days are so long gone, and to beat myself up on a daily basis over my weight is a waste of my time left on earth. I just need to let go of all those images I had of myself as a young woman and accept myself as I am now.
