Lifestyle Change is Key for Some Resolutions to Last

Posted:

CAMDEN, Del. - With the New Year come new resolutions. Everyone has them but many of them don't last long.

Vincent Barranco of Felton spent his New Year's morning working out at the gym. He said it was two years ago that he made the resolution to start working out.

"It's a way of life now. You have to make it a way of life," said Barranco. " It just can't be something you do."

The key to his success has been determination and a combination of working out and eating right.

"Everything from eating to working out, it has to be all together," said Barranco.

The problem with many people is they take their resolutions to the extreme. Everything is good for the first few weeks. But then somewhere along the lines the determination starts to wear off.

The best way to help make resolutions like trying to lose weight or maintaining a healthier lifestyle is to do so in moderation.

"I think eating is probably about 80-85% of it and exercise is 15% of it," said Daniel Wandless. "Eating is definitely a huge factor."

Wandless owns a couple of Anytime Fitness gyms in Kent County. He agrees that the combination of exercise and dieting is the only way to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

"Try to eat smaller meals more often during the day. I know a lot of times people's schedules it's hard at work to be able to eat a regular meal," said Wandless.

Two years later, Barranco is still going strong. He doesn't plan on stopping his new lifestyle anytime soon.

"Once you make it a way of life it becomes a habit and you start missing the sodas and sweets," said Barranco. "You do start eating healthy and you start enjoying the good food."
