WHETHER it's to keep up with the kids or to feel better on holiday, most people will decide they want to lose weight at some point.
But with the darker winter evenings drawing in, it can be more tempting to cosy up in front of the TV with a hot chocolate or a slice of cake.
While the motivation to fling off the duvet and go bust a gut in the gym may be running thin, it's not the only way to achieve your weight loss goals this winter.
And with the threat of a second coronavirus wave seemingly around the corner, there's never been a more important time to lose weight.
Here, Julia Westgarth, the head of programme at WW (formerly Weight Watchers) has shared six ways you can keep healthy this winter....
For many people, having strong community support is essential to help them work towards and maintain healthier habits.
This could be family or friends but could also be a case of finding like-minded people digitally.
There are so many social experiences and events online for WW members alone including the in-app community, Connect - and social media can be a great way to keep in touch and share your journey with others too.
Research shows us that tracking our weight, what we eat, and how we move are some of the most effective ways of maintaining health long-term.
And its also a great way to mindfully check-in with yourself to see how things are going.
Think about tracking as a tool to increase your awareness and learn - rather than to score how youre doing and this will feel much more motivating and help you to continue.
When people track flexibly (versus focusing on every little step or bite of food), they track more consistently, so find methods that work for you, like taking fun pictures of your food or daily voice notes.
Focusing solely on the negative wont help right now.
For example, try to stop telling yourself that youll never make progress when you cant go to the gym.
This will make you more frustrated and doesnt change the outcome.
Instead try to accept it and find alternatives such as an online class that youd never try in person.
Reframing your thoughts can also help.
Instead of thinking Im forced to stay inside, think Im doing this so I can stay healthy this will help you regain control and stay positive.
Theres an obvious and immediate need to find new and different ways to keep our health on track, but use this as an opportunity to introduce habits thatll fit seamlessly into your life in the long-term.
This could be taking an online yoga class before work or making sure you eat a healthy breakfast.
Establishing new habits can take time, so by taking action now you could achieve your healthy goals quicker than if you wait until new years resolutions.
Your way is the right way, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to being healthy in all aspects of your life.
Be active and proactive in ways that feel good and get you thinking positively, and dont be afraid to experiment.
Have you always planned to work out in the evening but find the sofa calling after a day at work? Perhaps give early mornings or lunchtimes a go.
Find yourself going hungry between meals? Perhaps try eating little and often instead.
Find it hard to switch off? Perhaps try turning off devices for a few minutes every day.
Its easy to say that wont work for me, but you wont know until you try.

Although its important to remember that not all health management services are created equal, the fact there are so many goes to show that youre not alone in needing help.
There are so many factors at play that impact your ability to lead a healthy, well-balanced life.
If you dont know where to start or what works for you, look for a service like WW that provides a range of support from fitness content, tracking, recipe inspiration, a 24/7 community and rewards to keep you motivated.
