CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Starting off the new year with a hopeful list of resolutions is just about as American as apple pie.
Almost everyone pledges to lose weight and maybe drink less. But will they stick with these promises to themselves?
22News found people are motivated to act on their list for a fresh start. One woman told 22News she plans to exercise more, and cut down on sweets.
"Well I haven't been too successful in the past," said Pat Breveleri of West Springfield. "But I'm really going to give it a shot this year."
Tom Thoma of West Springfield said, "In the past I haven't been too lucky but this year I'm going to try hard and it's going to be to lose weight."
