Every year at about this time all you see, hear and read about are people making the big three New Year resolutions – more money, quit smoking, and lose weight. Now, we don’t know the success rate of the first two, but as Male Fat Loss & Fitness Experts who have helped dozens and dozens of folks lose weight and get in better shape, we can tell you (and statistics prove) that most people who resolve to lose weight in the new year are doomed. In fact, an article we just read on CNN.com said that most people who have a new year resolution to lose weight will fail.
In the same article, clinical psychologist Mark Crawford said that one reason people fail is because they sabotage themselves. We believe this to be true. We’ve seen it ourselves.
Your partner might start off in mid to late December telling himself that they will commit to losing weight starting in the new year. Over the weeks building up to the new year they formulate a plan of sorts… to eat less, make better choices, exercise more, and pick up better habits.
And that’s the EXACT roadmap to failure!
And that’s why we’re writing this – to warn you, and him, of this impending doom IF they’re ABOUT TO MAKE THIS “NEW YEAR RESOLUTION” MISTAKE. Here’s what we mean.
We’re going to be brutally honest with you, because we can’t see the “media” telling you or your partner this truth any time soon. The reason why your partner might fail at losing weight in the new year is because…
- His goals are probably unrealistic and so he’s already setting yourself up for failure.
- He’s unprepared. Sure he has a general idea that he wants to lose weight. But he most likely does not have a game plan.
- His goals are unclear.
- He lacks support. Because the going WILL GET TOUGH and his support system is what will see him though to his goal.
Imagine going to another country you’ve never been in before. Now imagine if we handed you a GPS but didn’t give you an address (a goal). You’d probably fail at getting to your destination, wouldn’t you? Now imagine if we said your destination was a house about 150 miles north. Well, you now have a general idea, but you’ll still never get to your destination and therefore fail.
Get the picture? Now imagine if we handed you a GPS AND gave you the address of the house you needed to end up at. Once you type your goal destination into the GPS, it will give you VERY specific turn by turn directions AND a very realistic timeline in which you’ll arrive.
Makes sense, right? Yet, nearly 96% of all people who set weight loss goals for the new year don’t know how much they want to lose. And if they can pin point a number they want to lose, they still don’t have a “turn by turn” game plan to get there.
Now the reason we’re on this soap box and having this rant is because we’re sick and tired of good people being misled and being told half truths. Frankly, we hate the idea of a “new year resolution”. That’s just way too much pressure on anyone. PLUS, the way we see it, your partner can do anything they want, anytime they want.
They don’t need to wait till the New Year. If they’re the type of person that we think they are, we’re willing to bet that they can do anything they put their mind to and you can do it whenever they want.
Now, if when they want it is now, then help them to start now. And if when they want is in the New Year, fine with us, help them to start then. But help them to do it because they made the decision to do it and not because the talking heads on TV and radio influenced them to do it. And now that they will have the support and knowledge to know how NOT TO FAIL, they can achieve whatever goal it is that they want to achieve. That’s where our New Year REVOLUTION Program comes in.
