So, I made a new year’s resolution to lose weight. How do I go about it? In my youth, I could easily lose weight by simply going to the gym regularly. Run, do a little strength training, and generally increase my physical activities. This time, however, I knew I need to do a little bit more than that. After all, my metabolism is slowing down. Believe me, losing weight is difficult. You need to plan, execute, track your progress and make sure you remain committed for sustained improvements.
