Why 92% Of New Year's Resolutions Fail and How to Change Your Bad Habits for Good

You’ve decided it’s time to make a change. 

And start the new year with a clean slate. 

You are ready to start that new diet or fitness plan, or you are determined to break a bad habit.

But by February all of your good intentions may be  gone out the window and you’re right back where you started. 

Sound familiar?

Why is it so hard to keep our resolutions? . 

While sticking to your resolutions can be difficult, understanding the science behind why we struggle to change our habits can help you beat the odds and make lasting changes.

Let’s take a look at some of the main reasons why New Year’s resolutions fail, and how you can use that knowledge to create successful goals for 2023. 

Poor Planning

One reason why many New Year’s resolutions fail is because people set goals and expectations for themselves but don’t have a daily plan to help them achieve their goal.

To increase your chances of success, break down your big goals into smaller steps that are realistic and achievable on a daily basis. 

For example, if your goal is to lose 20 pounds this year, try setting a goal of getting daily activity and reducing your caloric intake by 500 calories each day. 

Smaller daily goals will be required to work toward every day for you to reach your ultimate goal.

Our comprehensive weekly transformation plans make it easy to stay on track and reach your daily goals so you can finally achieve your ultimate goal. 

You get free recipes, grocery lists for all the essentials, as well as workouts tailored to your needs. 

Bad Habits

Habits are behaviors that we do without thinking—they’re automatic responses that have become part of who we are. 

According to neuroscience research, habits form when a behavior is repeated over and over again until it becomes second nature.

Habits can be both positive and negative; for example, if you’ve formed the habit of exercising regularly, you may find yourself naturally wanting to go for a run or hit the gym without having to think about it too much. 

On the flip side, if you’ve developed an unhealthy eating habit, you may find yourself automatically reaching for junk food instead of healthier options without having to think about it first. 

Breaking Bad Habits 

So how do we break bad habits?  Here are some tried-and-true strategies that can help break old habits and create new ones in their place: 

1. Track your progress—keeping track of your progress can help you stay motivated and on track with your goals. 

Try keeping a journal where you record your successes (and failures) every day as well as any insights or reflections that come up during the process. 

The key to breaking bad eating habits is tracking your food intake. Download an app such as Lose It and begin logging what you eat throughout the day - this will help identify any unhealthy trends, like snacking too often after lunch or late at night.

2. Reward yourself—make sure to give yourself small rewards along the way as tangible reminders that you’re making progress towards achieving your goal(s).

Treat yourself to some much-deserved self-care with a relaxing bubble bath, the soothing flicker of scented candles, motivational podcasts that will leave you feeling inspired and energized - or simply indulging in an extra hour's sleep.

3. Looking for the right support can make all the difference when it comes to achieving your weight loss goals. 

By talking through any struggles you face, not only will stress and anxiety be relieved; but with a supportive group of like minded individuals behind you, success becomes even more attainable. 

Our 30 Day Transformation program has seen its female members experience an 87% higher chance at succeeding and losing weight than those who are not part of our community -  due largely to empowering upliftment from fellow female participants!

It Starts With Self-Awareness

In order for any kind of lasting change to occur, we need to first become self-aware. 

This means being honest with ourselves about our current habits and behavior patterns and understanding how they’re impacting our lives.

If you want to make a lasting change in your life this year—and want to lose weight for good while feeling healthier—you need to be honest with yourself about your current habits and how they’re affecting you. 

Once you become aware of your current habits and behavior patterns, you can start working on breaking them. 

This requires actively challenging yourself on a daily basis—such as making an effort not to indulge in unhealthy snacks or avoiding the temptation to emotionally eat when you feel stressed out. 

It takes time and dedication but eventually these small changes will start adding up until they become part of your regular routine and behavior pattern without having to think about it too much. 

You can do it with the right plan

No matter what your weight loss goal is, we all know that it's not easy to make lasting changes. 

Now that you understand the science behind why it is so hard to keep our New Year's resolutions, you need to have a daily plan of smaller goals to reach your ultimate weight loss goal. 

You need to unlearn your bad habits by tracking your habits, noticing patterns, making tweaks, and rewarding yourself so you rewire your brain to replace bad habits with good ones. 

Group support is critical for breaking your bad habits and patterns.
