While millions will start gung ho in January with lofty goals for massive weight loss, the reality is that most will fail. Here's why:
They bite off more than they can chew.
In all the excitement of becoming a better person and transforming their life in the New Year, they make the crucial mistake of committing too much. But reality soon sets in and they give up.
Want to be apart of the 8% who will achieve their resolutions?
Then set realistic goals.
•Instead of resolving to lose 50 pounds by June, commit to exercise 3-4 times each week.
•Instead of resolving to give up all carbs, commit to bring healthy snacks to work instead eating from the vending machine.
•Instead of resolving to drop 3 sizes in 3 months, commit to losing 1 pound each week until you reach your desired size.
•Instead of resolving to never eat out again, commit to eating healthy all week and reward yourself with one meal out on the weekends.
Remember that the whole point of making a New Year's Resolution is to become a healthier, happier and more successful person. Small changes done consistently will make a big difference.
