To take over the world."Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

I'd recommend Dave Ramseys "Total Money Makeover" - he teaches you how to do a monthly budget, so you can see where the money goes and spend it more purposefully.
Once you get your finances in order, other forms of organization - including weight loss - are likely to follow. I'm not making this up. :)"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

Saving money is also an annual resolution. I'm not a big spend drift for the most part.
My tax check doesn't get spent, it goes straight into savings for myself and my daughter's college fund. (I get at least $14K a year back from the IRS since I have investment properties and a very intelligent tax accountant :)) I am debt free with the exception of mortgages. I pay off my credit card at the end of each month.
Next year, I do want to put down new wood floors on the second floor, so may have to dip into into. I have porcelain tile on the first floor. I'm tired of carpets....I like how they feel under my feet, but they are just not as sanitary as tile or wood.

Looking back I was right. Between Republican "pretend" conservatives and statist democrats I was right to be worried. I do feel sorry for those who havent figured it out though. Between liberal Repukes like the current GOP leadership and Democrats we are currently living the USS Titanic.
But not to worry, we have "bread and circuses". Im sure most Americans are content to sit back and enjoy "the cruise".
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

I definately have to get some of this weight off.
Much less eating junk, get that blood pressure of mine to go down and stay down.
Find a nice guy that can put up with me.
Try not to be so snarky on the forums.
Get more involved with the community for either charity or tutoring. I might be able to do that now that my schedule is better. Hope it stays that way.
Work on my debt.
