Resolution Solution

It’s that time year of again. Time to join a gym and vow to lose the 20lbs you’ve been vowing to lose for the past two years.  Will this year be different?

According to Dr. Mike, it very likely will.

Want to take it in smaller bites?

Why not try a 30-Day Challenge? I can assure you that this is definitely doable.

So, you have a few days left before the year ticks to a close.  What do you say?  Will you resolve to make a change in 2013?  What will it be?
