How To Eat An Elephant

December 27th, 2011 by nealon

It’s getting close to that time of year when many of our thoughts will be pointed towards losing weight, getting in shape and living a healthier existence. Yes, we all know we should be doing it already but somewhere between January 1st and December 31st we get off track…and on track…and off track…and on track…you get the idea. In fact if you’ve ever struggled with your weight, you painfully get the idea.
So the question comes to me with overwhelming frequency, “How to I stop this brain damaging cycle?” It’s absolutely mind numbing, I know, to start and stop and start and stop over and over again.
