For those of you looking for a little encouragement to succeed in your New Year's resolution, how about this? It can be done!
Godby High School teacher Susan Womble vowed to lose 40 pounds in 2005, and that's exactly what she did. After seeking help from a local weight loss center, learning about nutrition and adding exercise, she's ready to give advice.
Womble says, Jjust keep at it. Find something healthy, stay away from fad diets, and make up your mind that you are going to stick to for six months to a year."
Womble went from a size 14 to a size six, sometimes a four. She says every now and then she gains a few pounds back, but immediately gets right back on track.
