We are nearly four weeks into 2013 and this is about the point that New Year resolutions begin to fail and soon most of them will be given up altogether.
Planning to lose weight is one of the most common New Year resolutions and if carried out will likely help people to live longer, with a better quality of life.
But like all New Year resolutions it is not as easy as it looks – I am still struggling with my easy one of going to the cinema more – still haven’t been managed it despite Life of Pi being on around the corner.
