10 Reasons You Absolutely Shouldn't Make Losing Weight a New Year's Resolution. For the Sake of Baby Seals, Don't.
1. Bikini season: The guy in the Southern Comfort commercials, which encourages us to do "Whatever's Comfortable," is making us reconsider "sexy." It's working. Let it happen.
2. Great bar food in Dallas: Scott Reitz knows a bar when he sees one. He also knows the fundamentals of good grub to go with a bar, as demonstrated in his list of Eight Bars Serving some of the Best Bar Food in Dallas. Thing is, losing weight truly involves social isolation. Why would you do that to yourself?
3. Your DNA just says "no": Last year about this time, The New York Times Magazine ran an article called The Fat Trap that asked the question, "Do You Have to be Superhuman to Lose Weight?" And after writer Tara Parker-Pope penned about 5,000 words the resounding answer was, "Yes, you do." So, just buy comfy pants.
4. Dallas' most notable new restaurants: Dallas got some dandies this year and it's downright rude of you not to visit them. It's like taking a new neighbor a batch of cookies. You need to support these families/restaurants in their new endeavors. Be a good neighbor.
