This might sound a little crazy but I am so happy to see January! As someone who has achieved weight loss success and is working off those last 10 pounds for the third time, I need all of the support I can get. Let’s just say…December felt a little lonely.

Friends and family frequently reach out to me this time of year asking for practical tips and advice for living a healthier lifestyle.

As you know, January is the month of good intentions but so often our lofty goals and ambitions quickly become overwhelming and out-of-reach. Fast forward a couple of weeks and we’ve all but given up and quit. To help pay it forward and help all of you reach your goals, I will be sharing a few of my tried and true strategies for making long-term healthy lifestyle changes throughout the entire month.
