Don’t Start “Ditching”!
Wow! How fast do these first few weeks of January seem to fly by? We are just a few weeks past the New Year’s Eve Ball dropping, but for many, those New Year intentions or (“resolutions’) have sputtered.
The ball drops. Craziness coming off the holidays ensue. Time flies. Then, BOOM! The month is over! So, here’s a couple questions:
How is 2020 started off for you?
Did YOU make a New Year Resolution?
If so, have you kept it?
We did a little checking into New Year “resolutions” and came across a study done 5-6 years ago at the University of Scranton. The findings were published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, and they really grabbed my attention. First, I was interested in the top resolutions we make. Check out the top 5.
|Rank||Top New Year's Resolutions
|3||Spend Less, Save More|
|4||Enjoy Life to the Fullest|
|5||Staying Fit and Healthy
The research findings show that of the resolutions made, 38% are weight related resolutions. That means that of all the folks who make a resolution (and we all know there are hundreds of thousands who do) almost 4 of 10 want to LOSE WEIGHT!
Here’s the sad truth though: the study showed that only 8% of people are successful in achieving their resolution. Ouch! That is a horribly low and very frustrating success rate!
Did you know there is a day called the “National Ditch Your Resolutions Day”? Sure, it’s a “fake holiday” but it’s on the event calendar, supposedly based on the premise that JANUARY 17 is the most common day for people to give up on their resolutions.
How sad is this? 17 days in is less than 5% of the way through the year!
The REASONS people ditch their resolutions are clear:
- They don’t know exactly what to do – they lack a plan that will actually work. It’s more than just “low calorie” or low carb. It’s about metabolism … and genetics. Seriously!
- They lack accountability. We all do better when we have someone making a difficult journey with us. Call it whatever you want: a coach, a partner or a cheerleader. That component is a huge part of this program’s success.
- Lack of results from the start. We live in a quick-fix society. If a person has gone 2 weeks and seen minimal (or no) results, they often “toss in the towel”. Our program is specifically designed to off-set that reason for ditching your resolution. In fact, statistically speaking, those who begin our program average losing over 20 pounds in the first 41 Day phase!
We set out for a solution to this sad DITCHING truth. Through researching various programs and working with highly knowledgeable and experienced colleagues, we settled on THE program that can (and has) enabled our clients to lose weight quickly and safely. Then, using DNA testing it provides a science-based solution to finish the losing process and KEEP the weight off.
If you have ditched a New Year Resolution to lose some weight, we should probably talk. Or, if you know someone else (a spouse, friend, family member, co-worker, etc.) who has ditched their resolution, please let them know about what we’re doing! It could change their life!
