Weight Loss Resolutions Fail, Local Gym Suggests Alternative

Every year people make weight loss resolutions, unfortunately they fail. Body Tech suggests making a different resolution.

Dallas, TX, December 31, 2006 -- Dallas, TX is ranked as the #4 fattest city according to Men.s Fitness magazine. That explains why every year people make weight loss resolutions, unfortunately they fail. .People set themselves up for failure right from the beginning by making New Years Resolutions to lose weight,. says Body Tech.s owner Jeanette Rasmussen. Weight loss resolutions are short lived. Most people usually quit by the end of January. Why not make a resolution that is more achievable? Let.s face it, if twenty people had resolutions to lose weight, statistics show most would fail. If those same twenty people had resolutions to be more physically active and conscientious of their food intake, more would succeed. Success promotes happiness and happiness promotes more success. By setting an achievable New Years resolution a person is more likely to continue along the same path. In this case, lose weight, the original conceived resolution.

Body Tech suggests changing the traditional .lose weight. resolution to .Make a Lifestyle Change. resolution. Here are a few things that you can do to make a lifestyle change that can be measured throughout the year, not just in the first few weeks of January. Chances are if you stick to these 5 simple tips you will be healthier in the coming year.

  1. Drink more water. Drinking more water can help you feel fuller so that you have the tendency to eat less. Not to mention that water is good for you too.
  2. Be aware of what you eat. The more aware you are of what you are eating the more likely you are to make a change.
  3. Be more physically active. Something as little as walking around the block once a day can do a lot for you.
  4. Go to the gym. Going somewhere to workout as opposed to working out at home increases your chances of actually working out. If you work out at home you tend to want to quit sooner than later.
  5. Work out with a friend. Working out with someone, like a personal trainer, keeps you accountable and helps keep you motivated.
