Do you have a bad habit you're trying to kick? It seems like every year in January, people try to devote their "New Year's resolutions" to fixing something about themselves that they could probably be doing better on.
Maybe you feel like you've been spending too much time at work and not enough with your loved ones? It's a pretty common worry, and fortunately the solution is pretty simple: start making more time for the people you care about! Similarly, another pretty common one is for people to be more assertive about what they want out of life.
However, by far the most common resolution among people is to try to improve their health, and especially their weight. I guarantee you that if you go to the gym in the weeks following January 1st, you'll find it beyond packed with tons of people who've decided they need to get in shape. Unfortunately, many of those people will stop after the first 10 days, but it's important to keep going if you really want to see results.
For Stanley Hollar from Indiana though, losing weight wasn't a matter of wanting to better himself for New Year's: it was after his doctors told him that if he didn't change his lifestyle, he'd be dead in three months...
