Hopefully you are not one of those idiots who brewskied, cocktailed, or winoed his (or herself) up on New Years Eve and made a resolution to loose weight and get in shape. Unfortunately there are a number of drunks who resolved to do just that, and then they sober up the next day or they may stick it out for a week or two before flushing that resolution down the toilet. The best time to begin a new health regime is any time but New Years. If for some reason you did resolve to become a more healthy human and you have done the preliminaries such as weighing yourself and measuring yourself and discovering your fattage, while not quite tonnage is pretty damn large,the next thing you want to do is make an appointment to see your family doctor. If, for some stupid reason you are middle aged and do not have a regular physician, get one. Don't be an asshole. In this day and age you need to be proactive with your health, not reactive,only shit heads are reactive. They are also one of the reasons health care costs in this country are so prohibitive. Any way, go see your doctor and let him know you are planning on beginning a change and get his advice. If you are a lardo he may tell you to take it slow since he does not want you keeling over with an arrhythmia. Most likely he will smile sagely, all the while thinking this is going to turn out to be a waste of your time since you are never going to change. Your challenge is to not only get in shape but to prove him wrong. Batter up!
