We’re one month into the New Year. Have you kept your resolution(s)? If not, you’re not alone. 36% of people give up on their resolutions by February, and only 8% go on to successfully fulfill their resolutions.
Let’s take a look at four of the most commonly made (and broken) resolutions of 2014.
- #4 – Enjoy Life to the Fullest
- #3 – Spend less, Save More
- #2 – Get Organized
- #1 – Lose Weight
Was your resolution to lose weight in 2014? The percentage of adults reporting a BMI greater than or equal to 30 (classifying them as obese) ranges from 22 to 37 percent for Indiana counties, while Indiana’s overall rate is 31%. The national benchmark is 25%. Find the percentage for your county in the map below.
