The majority of Britons, a recent survey has found, have one resolution in common - almost two thirds have put 'losing weight' top of the list.

49 percent vowed that they will exercise more, while 54 percent have admitted they will probably have broken their annual pledges by the end of January.

Next on the list of resolutions is 44 percent pledging to improve family finances, followed by eating more healthily, 35 percent, and looking for a new job, 16 percent.

A further 16 percent plan to take up a new hobby, 15 percent hope to spend more time with family and friends, and 14 percent want to stop smoking or at least cut down.

And 11 percent plan to reduce the amount of alcohol they drink.

Just under half of those who hope to make a financial New Year's resolution say they want to reduce their outgoings, with 30 percent wanting to slash their debt and 28 percent hoping to save money towards a deposit for a home.

"Unsurprisingly, health, fitness and money matters are at the top of the list," the Daily Star quoted John Miles, of gocompare.com, which carried out the poll, as saying.
