If you made a New Year's resolution - say to drop a few pounds - give yourself at least three weeks.

Experts say after 21 days, your new ways will become second nature.

The funniest excuse I ever heard from someone trying to lose weight was, "They have metal fillings in their teeth and the refrigerator magnets keep pulling them into the kitchen.  That's why they can't lose weight."

Come to thing about it - I have metal fillings!
