I work at a gym. I can guarantee you that 75% of the people who started this week will fail. Too much emotion and energy attached to an arbitrary day vs. a long term commitment to their health. If those people were serious about weight loss or better health they could have started it on July 1st just as easily, perhaps more so, than Jan. 1st.
