Gaining Weight and Inches Over Time More Common than you think

For many the process of gaining weight and inches is a slow steady process that occurs over many years. Many woman wake up 10-20 years after high school wondering what happened because they are now 20-40 pounds heavier and their waist size has increase several sizes as well. What generally happens is women gain 1- 2 pounds every year not thinking it was a big deal. After several years they are overweight and out of shape and a little panicked about how to release the weight they have been carrying around. They are disappointed that their curves have changed.

The first step in the process of releasing the weight is realizing their has been an unconscious attitude about eating appropriately and exercising for several years has caused the weigh problem. Once you understand that the extra piece of candy every day at the office, or 2 servings of ice cream with your kids after dinner 3 times per week over 20 years packs on the pounds you can begin to change behavior.

The next step is to find the right program to help you reach your goals. Studies have shown people doing self directed program seldom yield results and if they do not last more than a few months. Weight release is more sustainable and maintainable over time if it includes an accountability factor. My program is so successful with patients because in addition to accountability it also includes education about the daily behaviors that prevent regaining the weight. My patients appreciate that I help create skills on how, when, what and how much they eat to help them integrate this into daily lives. The key my patient success is that we discover how to make it work in their lives.

Be Well,
