17 Diet Fails That Prove Your New Year's Resolution Is Hopeless

Weight loss may be one of the most popular New Year's resolutions, but it's also one of the hardest to keep -- especially when you have fast food restaurants next door to Weight Watcher's clinics.

We combed the web for 17 signs that your goal to drop a few pounds in 2013 might be harder than you think. Let's just hope that a few misplaced signs and ironic gym locations don't completely derail your diet. Side note: you should probably stay away from strip malls.

  • 1 Anytime... Except Now
    Let's hope that McDonald's location isn't open 24-hours.
  • 2 Nutritional Snacks
    And this whole time we thought the produce aisle was our ticket to weight loss.
  • 3 Seriously?
    Then again, the smell alone would make us run faster.
  • 4 Cakelicious Curves
    Too close for comfort.
  • 5 Is This How They Keep People Coming Back?
    Next they'll start giving out free shots at AA meetings.
  • 6 Don't Look To Your Left
    How many people leave one business and head straight for the other?
  • 7 Which One Do You Think Is More Popular?
    Cake always wins.
  • 8 Don't Look Down Either
    Weight Watchers should probably just stay out of strip malls all together.
  • 9 Seems Legit
    "Empty Calories" are a good thing, right?

    The trick is that they have to walk home.
  • 11 Caesar's Invading Again
    Getting in shape is nice, but... FIVE DOLLAR PIZZA.

    One of these just has a tastier ring to it.
  • 13 Eat Your Vegetables
    And by that we mean trail mix, cookies and wine.
  • 14 Mix And Match?
    If you eat one followed by the other, they cancel each other out. That's how it works, right?
  • 15 Death By Chocolate?
    Listen Mr. Mischer, there's a resolution at stake here.
  • 16 Temptation From Below
    Do they have to make you walk past the ice cream shop to get to the gym?
