Recommit to Your New Year's Resolutions
The act of making New Year’s resolutions has existed for over 4,000 years, but so has the act of breaking them before springtime. For many, the reason for this failure is not a lack of willpower but a lack of proper preparation and resources. This section provides general advice about choosing and accomplishing resolutions, and helps to keep you motivated along the way.
- Believe it or not, January might not actually be the best time to start fulfilling your New Year’s resolution. WebMD has an article encouraging you to wait until spring.
- It's helpful to have good role models to follow when you're trying to achieve a goal. Bill and Jim Germanakos are twin brothers who starred in the third season of the reality television show The Biggest Loser. They each lost approximately half their weight, a total of 350 pounds, over the eight months of the contest. To learn how they did it, visit their Web site, Weightlosstwins.com.
