What is the most popular New Years Resolution?
30 Dec 08
Hello there. You are most probably correct. Losing weight is something a lot of people resolve to do for a New Year. I think a lot of people make health-related resolutions such as going to the gym regularly, or to eat more healthily, to quit smoking etc etc. People usually go for something that will benefit their own personal health in the long-term. I think that's why many find it hard to stick with their resolutions though as they will usually produce long-term effects and the benefits are rarely seen straightaway, which makes many get bored.

Every year nearly 150,000 million people in the United States alone make New Years Resolutions. Of that 150,000 million about 95 percent have a resolution to lose weight in the new year. I found this statistic in the magazine "Woman's World". I find it amazing that so many people desire to lose weight or are overweight. I know it's on my list of goals for the coming year too.
