OK, maybe next year

How are those New Year’s resolutions coming along?

Special K, which marked January 2 National Weigh-in Day, surveyed women on weight management. An astounding two-thirds of women started or renewed a weight management plan on January 1. About half also do so for a special event, and that rises to 57 percent in the spring apparently to get “bathing-suit ready.”

Unfortunately, polls show that about 25 percent have abandoned their resolutions by now, and only 10 percent will be sticking with the resolutions a year from now. Gyms and many self-help entrepreneurs build their business models on recycled resolutions.
