New Year resolutions have a bad reputation – probably because many people have a few thoughts about what they might do and call them resolutions when they are not really resolved at all.
The good news is that research shows that when people make real resolutions, around 40% are still on track 6 months later. That’s probably a higher proportion than most people think.
So how do you give yourself the best chance of being in that 40% who are maintaining or getting closer to their goal?
Have You Made a Real Resolution?
Think about your resolution language.
Are you saying:
I want to lose weight
I should lose weight
I could lose weight
I can lose weight
I will lose weight
I am determined to lose weight
I am going to lose a stone in two months
I am going to drop 3 dress sizes by summer
The kinds of words you are using to make your resolution...
