Why do resolutions rarely stick?

    It has to be a realistic goal. If you wear a size 22 and have never in your adult life worn a 2, you'll likely never reach a 2- aiming for a 12 would be more realistic.

    I think because change takes time and so often we want instant gratification.

    I have always heard that people start too high with their resolutions making them unrealistic. I try not to make any resolutions and just make it a habit to do something daily to get me where i ultimately want to be.

    Too unrealstic. Being too vague. Not setting guidelines. Quitting when you slip just a bit instead of forgiving yourself and resarting.

    We set them so high and expect so much. I lowered mine to just sticking to working out. I didn't set how much or how often. I just did mine to work out in general. I've been keeping it so far!
