I like to read People Magazine and yesterday I picked up this week's issue. On the cover was this story. I found it a pretty interesting read and real. None of these women did anything that I couldn't do myself. And one of them even has a celebrity for a sister. Now we all know that celebrities have all those secrets that we don't and have access to doctors that work magic to make fat disappear, right?? Well, that's not what she did. She worked hard...and that's what we have to do, too. My sister in law has lost over 100 lbs in 2003 b/c she cut back on what she was eating. She also got a new job where is moving more, but primarily it was the cutback on her food intake that made the difference. My sister lost about 30 lbs last year...doing the same thing. They didn't take miracle drugs or have surgeries or do anything that I can't do myself! I am not going to make a New Year's Resolution to lose 30 lbs. Resolutions never come true!! I am just going to be realistic and take it day by day! Work hard and eat right and less and maybe I'll be able to achieve what these women did!
