Why we make resolutions to lose weight in new year

Traditionally, one of the few times of the year we do a lot of baking is right before Christmas.

Traditionally, one of the few times of the year we do a lot of baking is right before Christmas.

When Christmas comes around, we pull out all the baking and start the feasting with family and friends and every night after we keep getting together and pull out the baking again and again until it’s New Year’s Eve and we realize that the feast started on Christmas Eve and didn’t end until after New Year’s.

No wonder most people have a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. It’s that Christmas weight we gained over the holidays. The time spent with family and memories made while eating, playing games and visiting was well worth it.

The weather is finally cooperating with outside fun and snowmobiles are getting out and around more.

Get a warm sweater on and get your family and friends registered for the Erskine “Skin Cash Spiel” on January 2 and 3. It will be a fun way to visit, eat, curl and get out of the house. To enter your team call Kelly at 742- 3824.

School gets jump started again on Jan. 4.

Erskine parent council is on Jan. 5 at 7 p.m. in the library.

Happy New Year. Stay safe and happy.
