4 ways to keep your weight-loss resolution

  1. Consult with your healthcare provider. No matter what your goal, your provider can offer you the right resources.
  2. Find a certified athletic trainerfor safe weight loss. Trust your body to a qualified individual—someone who can help you get fit while preventing injury—especially if you’re new to exercise.
  3. Scrutinize your eating habits. Looking to eat healthier in the new year? Keep track of what you consume and why you do so at certain times (such as feeling stressed or bored). Ask your healthcare provider for a referral to a dietitian.
  4. Lean on others. Consider joining a support group, which could be a local or a web-based group. Don’t be afraid to seek help from family and friends. Having assistance improves your chances of success.
