New Year's resolutions for 2014

Losing weight always seems to top the list for new year's resolutions but apparently it's not the top resolution for 2014.

In a new CNN International Poll, nearly 40% of respondents completely dismissed the possibility of going on a diet after the holidays. Only 23% said they're likely to go on a diet at the start of the New Year.

More than 1,000 adults nationwide were interviewed by phone from December 16th to the 19th for the poll.

But if you want to shed a few pounds, Elisabeth Foust from RUSH said "Pick one thing you want to do at a time. For example make a goal of working out 5 days a week and gradually build up to more days."
