I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions as I rarely keep them but I know lots of people do and one of the top ones is to lose weight!
I'm with everyone on that one, I made that resolutions many times but normally by the end of the first week I was completely done! But back in September I was totally in the correct mind set (you have to have that in the right place) to really take the challenge and lose some weight!!

And *that* should get you all started!! Still undecided on what diet to choose? See my sidebar to to the left - there are links to some of the most popular ones! And Good Luck!
