Reasons People Struggle with Weight Loss Resolutions

Losing weight requires changing lifelong habits and behaviors – no easy feat! Here are some of the most common reasons people struggle with achieving their weight loss resolutions:

1. Lack of Planning and Preparation

Jumping into a weight loss plan without properly preparing tends to backfire quickly. Failing to plan for challenges ahead of time leads to reactive decisions when willpower is low, often derailing your progress.

2. Unrealistic Expectations

Expecting to swiftly and effortlessly shed pounds sets you up for disappointment. Steady, sustainable progress aligned with realistic expectations is key.

3. Difficulty Making Lifestyle Changes

Losing weight requires more than short-term dieting; it demands permanent lifestyle adjustments like eating better quality foods, moving your body more, and getting enough sleep. These types of habitual changes are tough to implement.

4. Issues with Motivation and Accountability

There are many obstacles, temptations, inconveniences, and hardships on the road to weight loss. Without robust motivation and accountability measures, going off track is easy.

How We Can Help You Succeed 

At Green Relief Health Med Spa & Medical Weight Loss, we offer cutting-edge prescription medications for weight management, including Semaglutide (Wegovy, Ozempic), Tirzepatide (Mounjaro), and more under the expert supervision of Dr. Lauren Nawrocki. 

These innovative treatments can help patients lose weight more easily and rapidly than diet and exercise alone would allow.

1. Personalized Prescription Plan

We thoroughly assess each patient and craft a personalized prescription plan that optimizes dosage, timing, and accompanying lifestyle changes for superior results and tolerability.

2. Gradual Medication Adjustments

We start at low doses and slowly taper up medications like Semaglutide and Tirzepatide to minimize gastrointestinal side effects while allowing the body to adjust and achieve maximum benefits.

3. Routine Medical Monitoring

We closely monitor every patient through routine follow-ups, lab testing, and open communication to ensure treatments remain safe, effective, and appropriately dosed.

4. Lifestyle Change Guidance

These medications enhance weight loss significantly, but lifestyle adjustments like healthy eating, routine activity, proper sleep, and hydration optimize overall health and help patients keep weight off long-term. We provide guidance to promote success.

5. On-Demand Support and Troubleshooting

We understand these treatments come with questions and some troubleshooting. Our team is always available to address any concerns and adjust treatment plans as needed so you can lose weight confidently.

6. Community Support and Motivation

Losing weight can feel lonely and discouraging at times. Extra support and camaraderie from others on the same path help normalize the struggles while also providing motivation to persist. Our patients become like family.

In addition to lifestyle adjustments, we also offer cutting-edge medical weight loss treatments, like Wegovy and Tirzepatide, under the expert supervision of Dr. Lauren Nawrocki to help patients lose weight more easily and rapidly than diet and exercise alone would allow.

Setting Yourself Up for Success

While support systems and medical treatments can be invaluable for weight loss, success ultimately comes down to each patient’s daily choices and habits. Here are some tips for setting yourself up for success:

Be Specific Yet Flexible with Your Goals

Establish specific, measurable goals rooted in your “why” for wanting to lose weight, but retain flexibility in responding to challenges that arise along the way. Rigid goals often break, whereas adaptable goals persist.

Focus on Sustainable Changes

Target consistent, maintainable adjustments to your nutrition, activity levels, and lifestyle instead of extreme, short-lived changes guaranteeing rebound weight gain. Steady progress sustains motivation.

Track Your Progress and Celebrate Small Wins

Monitor your progress through metrics like weekly weigh-ins, before/after photos, inches lost, or benchmarks achieved. Celebrate when you hit milestones – even small ones – to sustain motivation.

Don’t Beat Yourself Up Over Slip-Ups

Perfection is unattainable. When you slip up, as is inevitable at times, respond with self-compassion rather than self-criticism, regroup, and get quickly back on track. Shame and guilt erode motivation over time.

Weight Loss Tips and Strategies

Supplementing lifestyle adjustments with safe, effective medical treatments can accelerate your results, but certain daily nutrition and fitness strategies aligned with your goals remain essential:

Food and Diet Tips

  • Prioritize high protein, fiber-rich whole foods at meals and snacks to optimize satiation and hunger management
  • Be strategic when eating carbohydrates fitted to your personal carb tolerance
  • Ensure adequate intake of healthy fats for hormonal health and vitamin absorption
  • Stay well hydrated with non-caloric fluids

Ways to Increase Physical Activity

  • Aim for 150-300 minutes of moderate activity weekly (like walking)
  • Incorporate resistance training 2-3x weekly to boost metabolism and burn more calories
  • Identify 3-5 physical activities you enjoy and practice them routinely
  • Increase NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) with habits like standing vs sitting, taking the stairs, fidgeting, etc.

Managing Cravings and Temptation

  • Plan for periodic indulgences in moderation
  • Stock up on healthy convenience options
  • Practice mindful eating
  • Optimize hunger and satiety through meal timing and composition

Develop Self-Discipline and Willpower

  • Build daily habits and routines around your goals
  • Increase accountability through tools like food journals or fitness trackers
  • Manage stress
  • Prioritize high-quality sleep
  • Practice positive self-talk and gratitude when you feel motivation dip
