I know I'm about a month late but first let me say "Happy New Year!" to you all. I know that a lot of people make NYR's each year and a bunch probably made the #1 on most lists .......To Lose Weight. I dont really believe in making resolutions especially those pertaining to things of habit. When it comes to resolutions requiring willpower, we often tend to neglect all the pretty promises we've made as soon as the novelty of the new year wears off. With that said, Welcome back to Fat Ladies in 07. This is the year for change. This is our year. There's no sayin that we cant do it because we can. Screw the naysayers. Every little bit works and every bit helps. This is also a year for being completely honest w/ ourselves. People often make the mistake of thinking that losing weight or any dramatic alteration of the physical appearance is a cure all for whatever ails them. It's time to take a good look inside and be sure that you want it for the right reasons. We have to be able to acknowledge that all of us were not destined to be a size 2 or even a 6. So be sure to set realistic goals for yourselves so that you CAN achieve them. Dont let other people try to make you conform to the ideals or goals that they've set for you. Dont let people try to pressure you into diets or exercise regimens that are not for YOU. Most importantly, however you choose to lose the weight, tone up, etc should be entirely up to YOU. Whether you are running 7 miles a day or Walking Away the Pounds for 30 mins, it should make you happy. Like our motto says" You've got to want it for yourself." If you don't love what you're doing or it feels like a chore, you're not going to stick with it. So 2007 is the Year of the Niche. Find your diet/exercise niche and the weight problem really wont be a problem after all. Happy Shedding!
