Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - If you made the New Year's resolution in the first place, fitness trainer, nutrition expert and nurse Robbie Raugh says you've already done the important part.

"You've got to make the decision to make a change," Raugh told WBEN. "I don't eat junk because I don't want to feel like junk... It's making a decision of why you want to make that change."

Now stick with it for a couple days, and it should only get easier.

"Resolution and self-control is like a muscle. If you say no today to whatever it is that you're craving, then the next time you say no you're a little bit stronger, and the next time you say no you're a little bit stronger."

And if you can last more than another 10 days you're already doing pretty good. January 12 is supposedly the day that on average most people give up on their resolutions.
