Lawton_From losing a few pounds...to letting go of the blackberry, we've heard all sorts of New Year's resolutions this year. Here in Texoma, that's no different. People say it's a way to look back on this past year and think of the things they'd like to change for the coming year. Most everyone 7NEWS talked to had a change they'd like to make for 2009. But the big question is....will they be able to stick with it?
The YMCA says they see evidence of that popular resolution with the start of each new year -- about 200 new singles or families are expected to join in early January. "New Year's we get an influx of our health seekers the health seekers that come in... The ‘resolutionists' as we call them, not the revolutionist but the ‘resolutionists'," said Viki Simmons of the YMCA.
But it may not be very easy for the ‘resolutionists' to keep the revolution going.
"For most people, they do not keep up with their resolutions so there are some tips with that. Some of those are like aim low. Don't set such an expectation that it's not something that you would be able to accomplish," said CCMH Nurse Practitioner Kim Holland.
Holland also suggests you tell others what your resolution is, that way they will hold you to it.
