Yesterday, on my way home from work, I heard on the radio that weight loss is the #1 New Year’s resolution that most people make but that only 8% of people actually achieve their weight loss resolutions. I would also be curious how many people sustain that weight loss beyond that given year. My guess from what I know and from my past experience is that not very many sustain it.
In all honesty, I was a bit disappointed in my 2016. I thought that I would be so much closer to my goal weight of 178lbs. At the very least, I thought for sure that I would hit my 100lb weight loss mark of 202lbs and be in what is known as “ONEderland” (being in the 100’s). Reality began to sit in for me in December that this wasn’t going to happen.
So, as we head into 2017, I decided to set up some very specific goals for me this year.
