  January 1 - 7 is Diet Resolution Week - Las Vegans are making their New Year's resolutions, and one of the most popular resolutions is to lose weight, However over 90% of those resolutions will be broken before March.  





Losing weight can be a daunting and difficult task. Setting weight loss goals is probably one of the more difficult things to do when you embark on an exercise and/or diet program. How much do you need to lose? That question is hard to answer and often based on your particular goals. If you're losing weight for your health, your goal might be more modest, say 5-10% of your current weight. But what if you have something more specific in mind like a certain clothing-size you want to fit into? How do you set a reasonable goal for yourself? The key to setting weight loss goals is to follow the standard of goal setting. It needs to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and tangible.  Please visit our Health and Wellness section for ideas.
