We are almost halfway through 2024, which makes now the perfect time to check in on how well Hoosiers are doing with their New Year's resolutions.

Over the last two years, I've decided to steer clear of making any New Year's resolutions. Why? Because I know for a fact that I won't stick with it. In 2021, I committed to losing 100 pounds but was only able to drop about half that. Perhaps it's never too late to kick-start an old goal. Either way, I'm not alone, because most Hoosiers in 2024 have already said goodbye to their new-year goals as well.

According to Wetten, 54% of Americans have admitted to calling it quits after less than six months of taking up their New Year's resolutions. Wetten broke the data down by state and found that Tennessee has the highest rate of quiters, with 90% of people in the Volunteer State admitting to throwing in the towel early. To my surprise, Arkansas boasts the lowest rate of quiters, with just 13% of those folks owning up to tossing out their 2024 goals early.

Some of the most popular new year's resolutions seem to be losing weight, saving more money, paying off debt, and even traveling more. When it comes to how Hoosiers have treated those goals so far in 2024, the results are not great. According to data compiled by Wetten, 64% of people in Indiana are no longer working towards their goal. The main reasons cited for this include lack of motivation, work stress, being tired, financial constraints, and even temptation, such as reaching for a bag of potato chips while trying to cut carbs.

While you may have already quit for the year, it's never too late to start again. As I mentioned before, I'm also guilty, so let's support each other. Sure, it may be hard, but there will always be a reason not to do something. Whether you only met your goal halfway or never even started it in the first place, this is your sign to give it another go.

SEE: Newburgh Man's Voice-to-Text Fail Leads to Hilarious Comments on Facebook

A gentleman who goes by Bob Lob Law on Facebook recently posted what was meant to be a nice public service to the other members of the private group, Life in the Burgh...Newburgh, to let them know traffic was backed up on a road in town due to a car that had found its way into a ditch. Thanks to a voice-to-text fail, he may have inadvertently changed the name of the road forever.
