Thomson Reuters and NPR conducted a poll to gauge attitudes and opinions on a wide range of health issues. A recent survey, which asked respondents their opinions and experiences with New Year’s resolutions focused on weight loss, found that 57 percent of Americans who have made a pledge to lose weight in the last five years were successful. Respondents who made a resolution to lose weight said most often that their goal was between 10 and 29 pounds (48 percent). The second most popular weight loss goal was 30-49 pounds (21 percent).
Americans are still making resolutions as they look forward to 2012. Fifty one percent of all respondents indicated that they will make a resolution to exercise more in the upcoming New Year and thirty five percent said they will make a pledge to lose weight.
