With the New Year right around the corner resolutions will be on the minds of many.  Not surprisingly, weight loss is the most common resolution in America.

If you are resolving to lose weight in 2016, what are you really hoping for as a result of this goal?  Pretend for a second that next year at this time you were at your desired number on the scale – what else has changed? 

Happiness and confidence are the most common reasons that I hear from clients regarding their desire for thinness.  It never ceases to amaze me that as a culture we've equated thinness with these things. 

However, I challenge that the daily lifestyle behaviors it would take to achieve and maintain the weight loss most people are going for would actually make you very unhappy. 

Consider setting a different type of New Year's resolution this year, or -gasp- consider not setting one at all.
