For at least the last ten years I have had the same chronic New Year’s Resolution: lose weight. There always seemed to be that pesky five pounds and few inches to melt away. Miraculously, my whole life would fall together if only I could lose this weight. This year is different for me in a number of ways, and I hope it can be for you too. I’m not sure if it’s just me getting older, or that some of my long term goals have changed, but having the perfect beach bod just doesn’t seem that important any more. It is no longer important to lose weight for the sake of losing weight, it is important to feel my best.
