LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Forbes just reported that nearly 80% of people abandon their New Year’s Resolutions by February each year. A lot of people tend to choose working out or eating healthier as their resolutions.

Beth Fern, physical therapist at FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Center, says small sustainable changes will help you in the long run.

“Those small changes can start with something like walking over your lunch break or cutting out pop and any other sugary beverages and drinking water instead,” Fern said.

Fern also suggests you find some type of accountability, whether that be a friend, spouse or just writing your goals in a journal.

“Food journals make a lot of people more successful because you are reporting to someone at the end of the day and it keeps your mind on your goals,” Fern said.

Fern also tells people not to focus on the weight on the scale and don’t weigh yourself daily.

“Our weight can fluctuate 3 pounds easily with water weight, so once we see those fluctuations go up we can get discouraged,” Fern said.
