Where to start?

It's a new year and like most everyone, you probably want to shed some holiday pounds, if not more. This task can be extremely overwhelming, so it's important to know how to start and what to take on. Your method of weight loss, whatever it may be, should have these components:

1) Be realistic - If you say you'll exercise for one hour everyday and you are inactive right now, that is not likely. Make this something that you'll really be able to change. Baby steps!

2) Be specific - How do you see yourself at your goal? "I want to fit into my red dress on my birthday in April."

3) Be positive - Don't write your goals in the negative. "I don't want to have a badunkadunk butt anymore" is not a goal!

4) Be yourself - No one can do this for you! Write goals that you have control over for yourself, not goals others have for you or that you have for others.
