Time to make those New Year's resolutions

It's the time of the year to make New Year's resolutions.

New research by WalletHub suggests that we make often make some Texas-sized commitments here in Houston -- but we're all that good about sticking to them.

Truth be told, Houston ranks just 35th among 108 U.S. cities in sticking to new year's resolutions.

We're particularly bad about losing weight and paying off debts, which are two most common promises Americans make.

Dr. John Huber, a Texas-based psychologist, says we can be smarter about our resolutions.

Huber says that first off, you'll do better with a buddy system – whether it’s for exercise, running, walking or dieting.

One bright spot in the survey: Houston ranked in the top 15 percent in the number of gyms per capita. That means there will be plenty of places – and fewer excuses – for workouts in the new year.

Houston’s lowest ranking in the survey was for failing to keep work and school resolutions.
