Struggling to Lose Weight?
Work with a physician to get a weight loss plan that supports you and gets results
You’ve decided you’re ready to lose weight and improve your health.
So you researched weight loss diets and combed the internet for all the tips and tricks to lose that weight.
Maybe you’ve even decided to exercise three days a week to burn some extra calories.
And you start out strong, feeling super motivated for those first few days. Even for the first week. And you’re thinking—I got this.
But all the aspects of your life that prevented you from losing weight in the first place start to get in the way again.
You’re busy and getting to the gym seems nearly impossible even three days a week.
And that busy schedule makes cooking a total drag. Seriously, who has time for this? It’s easier to eat out or buy prepackaged meals—even when you know they aren’t the best for you.
And while you’re thinking about food, what about all those favorite snacks you said you’d cut out of your diet? The temptation to indulge is always there now. Truly you want to eat all your favorite unhealthy foods more now than you did before.
Why? Because you’re hungry. Not just kind of hungry—you feel like you’re starving and it’s making you tired and irritable.
And now that certain foods are off the table you feel like it’s harder to unwind with friends and family at the weekend when everyone loves dining out as a way to connect. So you can add isolation to the list of growing frustration.
And the next thing you know, 2.5 weeks into your attempt at losing weight, you’ve given up on the whole plan because why bother? You feel more miserable now than before.
Any of this sound familiar?
If you’ve experienced even one of these frustrations on your weight loss journey, then you know how hard it is to lose weight on your own. You know how long it can take and how many ups and downs there can be along the way.
Because barriers to losing weight are tough.
Barriers like demotivation, embarrassment, or pain are deeply emotional and challenging for anyone to overcome.
It’s so easy to get frustrated and feel like it’s impossible. Especially when progress comes slower than you hoped.
And it’s easy to feel alone. To feel like no one can understand how it feels to go through this journey.
But the support you need is out there.
This is why working with a physician for weight loss is the best investment you make to get results.
Because with a physician you find more than injections, weight loss supplements, and meal plans.
What you get is a team dedicated to your success. Dedicated to helping you become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. With the support you need every step of the way.
So how does physician-led weight loss support you?
1. Weekly Check-ins
If you’ve tried losing weight on your own, you know how easy it is to get off track.
Whatever you’re facing, a physician gives you strategies to help and even creates a plan that gets around those difficulties.
So when you go to a weight loss center for a weight loss plan, you set yourself up for success by getting a support network.
You get weekly check-ins so you don’t feel isolated as you go through your weight loss journey.
These weekly check-ins help you stay accountable and give you the chance to check in with a physician for support and advice. And this support is hugely influential for successfully losing the weight you want.
Plus a physician will remind you to celebrate even the smallest loss. And cheer you on as you stay consistent with your plan.
