Don’t Be A New Year’s Resolution Failure Statistic!
Written by Wendy Corr on February 10, 2017
Teams in the Big Horn Radio Network’s “Losin’ It At Work” competition have lost over 900 pounds since the competition began – isn't that awesome???
There’s only a week left in the contest, which runs through the middle of February, at a time when many people have lost their momentum.
According to estimates, more than 40% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions… but according to information from US News and World Report, approximately 80% of those resolutions fail by the second week of February.
However, in a research study conducted at Brown Medical School and Dartmouth University, doctors found that people who had an exercise buddy who successfully lost weight were themselves more successful at losing.
What's the lesson here? GET A BUDDY, and KEEP GOING! You'll never reach your goals if you quit too soon!
