How many times did you make diet plans and failed to complete them? Time to make it work by losing weight as a couple

The Boomtown Rats were right. Nobody likes Mondays. Who wants to get up knowing that there will be no chocolate chip cookies in the menu today? Diets start on Mondays, but often end by mid-day. Who set up such rules? Forget about the calendar and “must do” norms. If your diet is going to make you miserable, it won’t work. Do it right and you will really lose. After all, it’s not worth struggling to lose a few pounds only to gain them back before the month is over! This will make you even more frustrated.
