Getting in Shape for 2017

It’s that time again…time to start all the weight-loss resolutions for the new year, coupled with the seemingly endless promises – either silent or otherwise – to join a gym, drop the donuts, get up close and personal with a trainer and slip into more curve-accenting clothes.
