About a third of Americans make resolutions each year though less than half of them stick to them for at least six months. If you make one, at least make it a good one!
Many people make resolutions to lose weight but quickly abandon that goal because it is too vague and hard to stick to. Also, it is too easy to get frustrtated when the pounds don't come off and resort to unhealthy ways of ditching the pounds. If you make a resolution to eat healthier, hopefully for the rest of your life, the pounds will naturally melt off. It might not be as fast as you want them to, but they are more likely to stay off for a longer period of time than with any fad diet or weight loss pill.
