East Texans Re-Resolve to Lose Weight

   Beating the bulge after you indulged this holiday is possible in 2003, according to fitness trainers. After a three month hiatus from working out and eating right, Tommy Hiltzman has returned to Woodcreek with a vengeance.

   "I feel sick if I don't come and I am sick of feeling miserable," says Tommy.

   The holidays may have set him back. "Probably 20 pounds so you know," smiles Tommy. "I ate more sweets than I have ever eaten in my life this year." But 2003 is a new year, for a new, healthier Tommy. And he's not alone. "I'm trying to get back to the way I used to be years ago when I used to run all the time," says Ron Landers. "I won't be running marathons, but I would like to say that I am fit."

   Easier said than done. Thousands of East Texans are now faced with the tough task of keeping motivated to lift weights and raise their heart rates year round.

   "They can start their life again and their recommitment including to themselves," says Diane Gordon, a fitness trainer. "You don't want to start out with too much it is the best way to fail."

   If you want to stay on the fitness track, trainers say its important to pick something you like whether that be riding a bike or a stair climber. So, start out with three workouts a week, 30 minutes cardiovascular and 30 with weights. Don't set your goals of losing weight too high, don't miss an appointment with yourself and work out with a partner.

   "It's not just the physical kind of thing," says Diane. "It is that psychological support and let's face it it's just a lot more fun being with your friends."

   Just remember working out by itself won't make you trim for 2003, but coupling it with eating light and right will.
