If you're already about to give up on your New Years resolution to lose weight and get in shape; a local health expert can help. Jenny Anderson, Director of Fitness Operations for the Athletic Club of Bend says it happens every year; the Club is packed in January and then people start to fizzle out of their resolutions around mid-February. She says it's important to set "smart" goals for weight loss: “If you can sit down with your weight loss goal, which isn't very specific, and make is a smart goal, like for example: instead of just saying I want to loss weight, you could say I want to lose 20 pounds by April 15th. I will perform a half an hour of cardio and a half an hour of strength training per day four times a week. And I will only eat starchy carbohydrates three times a week." She says having an accountability partner is also very key to successful weight loss and overall fitness goals. Anderson was a guest on KBND's “Your Town” Monday morning.
