Burden of Losing Weight?
More than 1/3 of our population is obese (defined as a body mass index over 30) and a full 2/3 are overweight! And with those alarming statistics come an enormous burden of chronic diseases and staggering healthcare costs.
So perhaps you are overweight or even obese. And you want to lose weight. Your doctor recommends that you eat a healthy diet and exercise. And a very few of you do…good for you! But most people aren’t successful. Let’s face it – it’s very difficult to lose weight!
The Solution: Coaching!
In comes the Wellness Coach! The coach sits down with you and spends time getting to know you, your health and your daily routine. What are your stressors? Do you feel like you are always on the go with no time for yourself? Have you lost the same 10 pounds over and over again? What have you tried? What worked? What didn’t? Do you sit down to meals or eat on the go? Do you drink plenty of water or live on coffee or sodas all day? Do you exercise? What are your goals? What are your obstacles?
You meet with your coach and build a relationship. You set your sights high but you start with realistic little goals that blossom into amazing bigger goals! As stated by one of our patients, “I feel that I can do it, before I felt like it was monumental… Small positive strides, now I feel I can do it.”
With a good coach, you can develop a “road-map” for well-being. You can develop a positive, can-do attitude. You get motivated. You are accountable. You work towards little goals then bigger. You can make lasting change! You can lose those pesky pounds for good!
