Introduction New Year's resolutions. For some people, they act as a road map to help navigate the year ahead. For others, they're nothing more than a nuisance and reminder of past -- and present -- missteps. Yet as the holiday hoopla winds down, before you start mulling the resolution issue, ask yourself this question: What can I do to make my life healthier in the coming year? Let's face it: Being healthy has a trickle-down effect on your life. If you're in good shape, you can do more and feel it less. Your state of mind also reaps a benefit or two -- when everything is working smoothly, there's less for you to worry about, and that improves your overall quality of life. We suggest that you start thinking seriously about taking on the number-one resolution of the majority of people in this country: losing weight. Our guess is that if you've picked up this cookbook, you're probably already on the weight-loss path; we're here to provide you with a little fuel so you can stay the course.Weight Watchers Simply Deliciouswas created with you in mind.Based onWeight WatchersWinning Pointsprogram, we focused on recreating familiar recipes with deliciously different tastes and flavors.
