Though they’re fun to make, New Year’s resolutions are notorious for being impossible to achieve, particularly the ones involving body contouring or weight loss goals. To set you up for resolution success, here’s a look at common resolution mistakes, along with expert solutions.
Resolution mistake #1: Being too vague
One reason so many people fail at their New Year’s resolutions is that their goals aren’t specific enough, according to research on the habits of successful people. Numerous studies indicate that specific, quantifiable goals are much more likely to be accomplished than vague aspirations. Take the common resolution of “slimming down,” for example. It doesn’t specify the amount of weight you’d like to lose or how to go about achieving it. So, you’re left with a general goal that can feel overwhelming. Many people get stuck not knowing where to start, which can feed into a vicious cycle of procrastination.
Solution: Instead of making a resolution to “exercise more in 2020,” for example, resolve yourself to walking three times a week or doing sit-ups every morning before you shower. Assigning yourself specific tasks helps to break down a big goal like “exercising more” into less intimidating, bite-sized pieces that are 1) easy to measure 2) help track your progress 3) keep you motivated.
Resolution mistake #2: Going it alone.
It’s 2020, not 1980! Do you know what that means? The world of aesthetic medicine has advanced beyond your wildest dreams. Asking for help isn’t weak, it’s just plain smart.

Resolution mistake #3: Underestimating the enemy.
Many of us lump all our body contouring issues into the same category, but fat bulges and excess weight are actually distinct issues. The fact is, most fat bulges can’t be corrected by the gym or drastic weight loss. And this is why we’ve expanded our menu with advanced body contouring solutions, to provide the extra help we all so desperately need!
