New Years Resolutions are common. The most common is weight loss though some people choose to stop smoking, exercise more, be more positive, spend more time with family, get more involved in the community and more. Most people don't stick to their resolution, but why? What is holding you back from your intent now? To understand this,you need to ask yourself why do you want to lose weight or exercise more? Without asking the why, the how will never stick. Looking at the model of change, give yourself room. If you "fall off the wagon", get back on.
