"Let's face it, ladies, as black women we have issues when it comes to food and exercise... If you're like me, you sometimes reminisce about the good ole days... when you could eat whatever you wanted [and] you didn't have to exercise.

It's that time again when many of us resolve to change our eating habits to lose those unwanted pounds and keep the pounds off – until next year when we resolve to do it again. Our resolve to lose weight, and keep it off, annually hangs in the balance up against our difficulty resisting food temptations.
Plain and simple, resolutions are difficult to keep. We don't always follow through.
