On January 1st, the number one New Year’s resolution for yet another year is to lose weight and get fit. In fact, about a third of New Year's resolvers make weight loss their primary goal, and about 15% aim to begin an exercise program, suggests a small study of John C. Norcross, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Scranton, Pennsylvania.
The unfortunate truth is that this same resolution is often repeated year after year and statistically, most of the people who make it have abandoned it before the arrival of February. In my analysis, there is one main reason why this happens. This article is about how to tackle this resolution in a way that will lead to long-term adherence and success.
