Slow Start in 2014

The typical New Year's Resolution of many is to go to the gym and eat healthy for a fresh start.  However, many gyms in Texoma didn’t see their usual “new year” spike in membership, but lines at fast food restaurants were out of the door.

On the first day of 2014, Willie's Place in Wichita Falls, opened due to public requests, meaning those gym resolutions Texomans had, may have been ignored.

“This is going to be the first New Year’s that we’ve been open because we're normally closed. We’ve had a lot of people requesting to be open today, so we decided to come in and see how it worked out. I assume we are going to have a lot of people today. I also posted our New Year’s resolution for Willie’s Place on our Facebook page," said Owner of Willie's Place, William Harmon.

There are some Texomans, however who did decide to stay away from fast food in the new year.

“I try to stay away from fast food as much as possible. I go to the gym every day. I think people should at least try to work out and push themselves 2 to 3 days a week and then they can get better every day," said Texoma resident, B.J. Sullivan.

It seems the key to keep your New Year's resolution about choosing the gym over fast food is confidence.

A lot of people don’t have any confidence and they give up too easy. You have to have a goal and you have to be motivated.  People should set a pace stay with it," said Texoma resident, Ramiro Franco.

One Texoman in particular said she is definitely sticking to her weight resolution in 2014.

“I want to lose at least 50 pounds. It’s very hard when you take that first bite of good tasting food and maybe you’ve been cooking and you take a bite and then you’re off your diet all of the sudden. I know I can do it. In 1981 or 1982 I lost 21 pounds in 21 days, said Texoma resident, Ruby Ditto.

If you have trouble coming up with a New Year's resolution, some doctors suggest to stop multi-tasking, try something new and to step away from smart phones, tablets and television.
