There’s a prevailing sense among people trying to effect change in their lives and enjoy the health and wellness benefits of weight loss that the problem is simply one that can be solved if they have enough will power — that the only thing standing between a healthier lifestyle and shedding unwanted pounds is themselves. Arguably there are many weight loss success stories that revolve around someone screwing up their courage and changing their lives for the better — but there are far more that end with failure, and a belief that it was “their own fault”.
Reality is a little different. Over many years helping people lose weight, we’ve found that only part of the equation is a person’s will power. Obviously there are usually years of bad habits to break in order to change one’s life enough to drop those unwanted pounds; but thinking of the weight loss process as being “all in the mind” doesn’t do justice to the physiological issues within the brain and body that contribute to the problem.
Medical weight loss programs like ours focus not just on what you think you can accomplish, but also ways to help your body make it easier for you to do so. A strong sense of commitment to a weight management program is great, but if your body is fighting against you at every turn, you’re going to have a harder time making a go of it. Our programs are designed to use prescription medications and state-of-the-art diagnostics to help your body work along with you toward your weight loss goals. Our staff will be with you every step of the way, helping fine tune your response system to help it support you, rather than get in your way.
