    ***Official New Year's resolutions thread***

    Research: Statistics on new year's resolutions




    Well, about 40 to 45% of American adults make one or more resolutions each year.
    Among the top new years resolutions are resolutions about weight loss, exercise, and stopping to smoke. Also popular are resolutions dealing with better money management / debt reduction.

    The following shows how many of these resolutions are maintained as time goes on:

    - past the first week: 75%
    - past 2 weeks: 71%
    - after one month: 64%
    - after 6 months: 46%


    Do you succeed in your resolutions?

    Yes. Self-discipline is the way to go.

    Mine is to cut out and keep out drinking pop. Havn't had a pop in over 2 years. Not even Diet.

    Mine is to get a job that actually requires my college education, and to lose about 15 more pounds (I've lost about 25 since I graduated 8 months ago).

    Both, I think are very attainable.

    Mine will be to eat less fast food. I am not going to try to cut out fast food completely, because that will never happen and will only last a couple of days. So, I am going to keep it simple and just stop eating so damn much of it.

    Wait, you can have a new year's resolution for something that you've already been doing?

    Well, I give up being nice next year. I know, it'll be hard, but I haven't been nice for a few years now, so I have a good head start.

    Re: ***Official New Year's resolutions thread***

    I just want to become a little more healthy. That means for me, ordering a chicken sandwich instead of the burger, taking one less trip to buffet, drinking diet pop instead of regular whenever possible, cutting out half of my pop in general and substituting water or Crystal Light or something not pop, working out 4-5 times a week instead of 3-4. That about covers it for me. Oh yeah, and I am going to have more sex. (Like I was the limiting factor)

    Re: ***Official New Year's resolutions thread***

    I quit smoking last week. Calling that a head start. Pretty sure it'll stick, I'm tired of being broke because of smokes.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Well, I'm up to 228 pounds. It's the highest I've been at. I don't like it.

    My resolution is to lose 20 pounds before June, and keep it off the rest of the year.

    Gotta get in shape for my spring break trip in March.

    That means - no pop, no fast food, and more exercise (gym, bedroom, etc...)

    If thats you in your avatar, I'm surprised you haven't been getting the chicken sandwich all along.

    Too soon?

    Re: ***Official New Year's resolutions thread***

    Can being a more positive person be a resolution? Because I might go with that, or being more outgoing.

    I've always kind of though resolutions were stupid though but I'll try it out this year.
