After weeks of holiday eating and drinking, the New Year gives everyone a good excuse to announce their weight loss goals masqueraded as "resolutions." Year after year hopefuls declare some outrageous plan to lose a thigh, and usually give it up in about a fortnight.

All you have to do is download and use them. Here we've highlighted just a few of the best ones.
