Write a NEW YOU Resolution!

Do your resolution right this year, and write it down!
Published December 29, 2016

Every year, when "Auld Lang Syne" has finished playing and the New Year's Eve party hors d'oeuvres are all gone, we make New Year's resolutions. For many of us, one of these resolutions is to lose weight.

The difference between weight-loss success and forgotten by February? A plan. To help you put your resolution in writing, we made the fill-in-the-blank resolution form you see below. Print it out and grab a pencil.

Whatever you want to be NEW about your weight-loss journey this year, put it in this form. Maybe you're just starting and you have quite a bit of weight to lose, or you've been at it for a while but you want to learn to feel comfortable with food. Figuring out the whys and hows of your weight-loss journey can make all the difference in whether or not you actually do it.

So -- get started on the path top a new you!
