After a slight drop to the number two position the previous year, weight loss and getting into shape is back to the top of the New Year’s Resolution leader board according to Squidoo and 43Things blog surveys.
• This may be a sign that people are feeling some sense of economic turnaround and are finally starting to recover from feeling uncertain about their future.
• When people are in contraction and survival mode, vanity and even health takes a back seat to keeping their head above water.
• Once we feel a sense of stability the mirror and scale once again becomes the tools for measuring whether we feel happy and accomplished or not.
Whether a spike in the $55 billion dollar weight loss industry is the result of an economic recovery or will fuel that recovery in 2011 may actually be a mute point.
According to #1 bestselling author of 7 Rules of Achievement and a leading authority on the science of achievement Tom Terwilliger, “Other than being an overlooked psycho-demographic tool for measuring the economic temperature the setting of weight loss goals as a New Year’s resolution will have little real impact on the our economy in 2011 considering that over 95% of resolution setters fail within 30 days of setting their goals.”
