While rumor has it that the average person gains close to ten pounds over the holiday season, the truth is far closer to about a pound. Nevertheless, January brings about an opportunity to shed any unwanted weight from the holidays or before and the New Year brings a new resolve to do just that. However, what starts out as good intentions can sometime fizzle out all too soon. So, this month, we're asking you to share your weight loss secrets, inspirations and motivations. Each month, we ask a different question here. Your answers and feedback will appear below in the comments section. We encourage you to check out everyone else's answers and make comments and suggestions. This is a great way to get to know people who love reading this electronic magazine. Who knows, your next Internet friend may be a few clicks away!
