36 Incentives to Lose Weight and Live Healthy in 2009

— December 23, 2008 — Lifestyle
Another year has almost passed. Next week, millions of people will make a New Year's resolution to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle in 2009.

Below, you’ll find everything from healthy lifestyle suggestions to fitness products, inspirational stories of weight loss and accounts of those struggling to get fit (so you know you aren’t alone). 

Remember, despite all of the fad diets out there, it’s best to lose weight at a slow and steady pace. Set small achievable goals such as 1/2 pound to 2 pounds a week. And, if you fall off of the weight loss wagon, don’t beat yourself up--tomorrow is a new day.

Here’s hoping that 2009 will be the year of healthier living for the majority of people who make such a resolution--myself included!
