Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?
One resolution stands out from the year 2003.Like millions of people bemoaning their post-holiday shmoo shapes , I made the cliche-ridden goal to get fit and lose weight. I actually carried it out, surprising everyone especially myself. Starting in January 2003 I joined Weight Watchers, exercised diligently and voila – I lost 60 pounds and felt much better. That took a lot of aerobics and carb-cutting which was hard for someone like me who loves bread and potatoes. I have kept most of the poundage at bay and still work out regularly. Most of my other resolutions are less life changing e.g. will resolve to recycle more or read more. This year’s resolution – to write every day.
