If you are feeling stuck or struggling for traction on your weight loss goals, we hope you’ll consider these benefits of partnering with a weight loss/health coach. We offer one to you through our WHS Wellness Center; our way of providing “Care for the Total Woman.”
Everyone deserves to feel happy, love their physical selves and enjoy good health! This just might be the missing piece in your wellness puzzle.
We all begin with strong determination to shed unhealthy weight; staying the course and working over weeks and months towards your goal is the most challenging part. When you partner with a weight loss coach, you share weekly conversations focused on your goal achievement. Together you celebrate what’s gone well and strategize around what might be getting in the way of your progress. When you get off track, your coach helps you quickly get up, brush yourself off and keep moving forward.
With a coaching program, your coach acts as your personal guide to health improvements. Wherever you are in your journey, your coach meets you there and personally helps you get to a healthier place by providing resources that are based in experience in nutrition, physical activity and behavior change.
Patience and consistency
These are two keys skills your coach helps you build that are critical to weight loss and maintenance. With coaching, most clients shed 1-2 pounds per week–the healthiest and most sustainable rate of weight loss.
This is something that most coaching clients report as a hugely positive shift during and after a coaching program. Feeling that YOU are in control of your health is a gift. Coaching helps you build confidence to make changes in your daily health choices and lifestyle. You go from doubting to believing in your power to take charge of your weight and health.
Encouragement, support and empowerment
This is a defining difference between dieting and coaching; the later being based in positivity — not deprivation and shouldn’ts.
Your coach supports you in the plateaus and encourages you to keep your best self vision propelling you to meet your goals.
On a diet, someone else tells you what to eat or not to eat. With coaching, you learn to make better choices for yourself and your health. A mindset shift takes place that helps you turn “I can’t have that” into “I don’t want that because I want and deserve better for myself and my body.”
With all of these coaching benefits, the results you want are within reach! (Be sure to click on the link below to see client Chris and Erika’s short video below about their 100+ pound weight loss success!)
Don’t stay stuck in 2017 in meeting your health and weight loss goals. You deserve to feel good in your body, to be happy and feel in control of your health.
Invest in your health and your future life quality. There’s no greater gift you can give to yourself and your loved ones.
