90.8% of Americans who make resolutions fail.
Wait, what? That is a huge rate of failure. I've had some great resolutions and some bad ones over the 30-something years of my life. I've found that when I resolve to learn something vs. a resolution I have a higher success rate. However, this year the odds are against me as I make yet another weight-loss resolution. Game changer, this year, I am giving myself permission to fail.
Seventeen days into this year and the scale has increased by 1 pound. That makes me 3 whole pounds heavier than my Fitbit currently thinks I weigh. Somewhere between Halloween and Thanksgiving, I found those extra 2 pounds and now they have morphed into 3 pounds. It is often said that people gain 5-7 pounds during the holidays. Well after some digging apparently that number is exaggerated, really we only gain a little less than a pound during the holidays. So, in a brief moment I felt better about being under the average, but now I am an overachiever. Go figure.
