The New Year is almost here and some of us have been making those dreaded New Year’s resolutions. Does the mere sound of the words put you into a panic? Have you ever managed to actually keep a New Year’s resolution? If you have you are amongst the minority. Statistics have shown the success rate to hover somewhere around 5%, but hey don’t let that stop you because someone has to make up that 5%--right! One of the top resolutions made is to--you guessed it-- lose weight. Having recently had a baby I know a little bit about losing weight and the trick is to find what works best for you--diet, exercise, a combination of both. The library has a great selection of books on dieting (look in 613.25) and books on low calorie cooking (look in 641.563). If exercise is your goal, and you are not a gym person (which I am not), check out our selection of exercise DVDs. Yoga, pilates, and belly dancing are few of the offerings we have. Go ahead and try something new it will help to make the cold winter months go by quicker, and hopefully you will lose a couple pounds in the deal. Good luck!
