I started doing health related resolutions 2 years ago. In 2010, my goal was to exercise 4-5 times a week--accomplished and it's finally a habit!; 2011 goal was to continue to exercise, and to start journaling my intake. 

I have been successful on the exercising part. It's become such a habit, that it's hard to skip. 

However, I will say I was 80% successful with my journalling goal. I started out with a paper journal. About 6 months ago, I move to journalling on I was good with this, but i let others comments derail me. I stopped journalling there about 6 weeks ago. In the new year, I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want to start up again. I liked seeing what I was eating, but the community part of myfitnesspal can be overwhelming. So...I'm not sure. 

I am playing with the no dieting idea for a few weeks. I am thrilled at the idea of no dieting, but I'm scared of this, also. I do not want to gain, but I'm sick of the binge/restrict mentality. I'm much, much better than I used to be...but I just want to get to a place where I'm eating healthy most of the time. This year, I'm going to reach this goal.

I really think my biggest issue is sugar. So I think if I cut that out, I will be good to go. I have a huge sweet tooth, so it's going to be very hard to maintain this goal...but I think I'm ready. It's something I've thought about awhile.

I am in the process of making a list of acceptable sweet items that I will allow...but I'm going to cut out all pastries, sweet breads, cakes, cookies, etc.

N- Good luck with the no dieting goal. I also would love to just eat for health, wellness and fuel and for it to become second nature for me. I agree about the trigger foods. Once I take a bite, all bets are off for me :)
