If you’re like us you start out the New Year with plenty of good intentions: Get organized, get fit, lose those few extra pounds. Well, here’s some inspiration to help out with that last one. In PEOPLE’s new issue, you’ll find amazing stories of people who lost half their size. Then, if you’re thinking about what you need to do before you slip on a new bikini (like this cute one from J. Crew), visit our dieting message boards. It’s a place where you can talk with others about your goals, biggest challenges, how badly you’re craving chocolate, the best song to work out to, and more. Check out our Half Their Size special.
