Snows storm in Iowa again? Of course! When it is cold and snowy outside, we find it hard to get ourselves outsides and enjoy activities like we do in the summer. Our Iowa Weight Loss Specialists experts want you to know that it is important to keep moving and get outside. Fresh air may be just what you need to help with those winter blues!
