Looking good and losing weight are two of those topics that are always on people’s minds.

Thus, weight maintenance is a fundamental element of the Dot Com lifestyle. In fact, it’s one of the key reasons why taking action to live the Dot Com lifestyle is so important. You can’t dream your life away any more than you can wish your weight away.
