The holidays are here. Oh, the food, the egg nog, the parties. Oh, the tight-fitting clothes. Oh, the New Year’s Resolutions to lose those holiday pounds. Been there, done that.
For most of my life, I was a yo-yo dieter. Lose it, gain it, lose it, find it, find more of it. You know how that goes. (That’s me to the right a few years ago.) Like so many others, I struggled with weight my entire life, until a few years ago when I made a decision to change not just my diet, but my way of life. It’s worked. I’ve lost about 65 pounds and have been able to keep it off. You can, too. You just need to make the decision to do it.
Here’s what I suggest. Enjoy the holiday season. Then, make the decision to change things in 2008. Then, as the saying goes . . . just do it.
