If your New Year’s resolution was to lose some weight this year, you are not alone.

It is one of the most common resolutions that people make, and unfortunately - break.

About  30% of all resolutions are broken before February, so right about now, you might be starting to fall off the weight loss wagon.

To accomplish a goal, you need a plan that is smart, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Rewarding and Time bound.

Instead of saying I want to lose 20 pounds, aim to lose a pound a week for 20 weeks.  And, be specific on how you will do it – for instance, I will work out every other day, keep a food log and skip deserts. Goals are just dreams with a plan.  Make your plan smart.
