Stack the deck. Did you know that there are ways that you can improve your chances of keeping a resolution? Weight Watchers says that members who attend regular weekly meetings are much more likely to lose weight than members who do not attend meeting. So if you want to lose weight with that program—attend the meetings. If you want to change habits, you may have to do some reading or learning. You may need to join a support group, make new friends, get a membership somewhere, or change your routine. Do everything you reasonably can to insure your success. For example, if you know that chocolate is a weakness and you want to lose weight, do not let chocolate into your house.
