Especially when it comes to goals involving your health & weight, these plans require a lifetime commitment and a conscious decision to make the required change(s). If you approach your resolution with a short-term effort as your plan, your success will be short-lived and you will find that resolution returning to greet you with every New Year.  Your heart's gotta be on board with the program because if it's not, it just won't succeed.  But don't be discouraged!  You just need to do some soul-searching to figure out what is really important to you, and listen to your gut [...]
