The holidays are gone, but winter is still here. Instead of focusing on a case of the holiday blues, focus on what January brings: a new year, a new start, and a new beginning. No matter if you followed your diet plan through the holidays or threw it out with the summer barbecue leftovers, there are easy ways to begin the new year with a weight loss goal in mind. Start your year off with a goal in mind, and take that first step in shedding the holiday weight.
