With the New Year will come the traditional resolutions from many of you, and one of those that is a favorite one to make is to lose weight. Unfortunately, Jan. 1 isn’t a magic day that just changes our habits, thoughts and values. It has to be you, on any day of the year, that makes a conscious decision to get healthier and stick to it.
As many of you recall, I stopped making New Year’s resolutions years ago because, 1) I had a propensity for breaking most of them within hours after entering the newly arrived annum, and 2) by the end of the first week of the fresh year I realized I really didn’t give a rip about whether or not any of them came to fruition, so the list was tossed into the trash can and forgotten. This ideology seemed to be a valid stress reducer.
