Our Weigh Beyond Program
Extra weight on the body increases the risk for health conditions like Type 2 Diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, and some types of cancer. Healthcare providers determine if you are overweight by calculating your Body Mass Index (BMI). A normal BMI ranges between 18.5-24.9. BMI = (your weight in pounds x 703) ÷ (your height in inches x your height in inches) For example, if you weigh 150 pounds and are 5 ft. 6 in. (63 in.) tall: BMI = (150 x 703) ÷ (66 x 66) or 105,450 ÷ 4356 = 24.2 24.2 would be considered a normal healthy weight.
We’ll Help You Lose Weight Through
Before choosing a specific diet plan or even an exercise routine, we should take a look into how well your body is currently functioning. Is your Thyroid functioning properly? Are you intolerant of certain foods? Could you be diabetic or pre-diabetic? Are your medications causing weight gain? Could your body be struggling with leptin resistance? Our Primary Care team can help you answer these questions.
Your brain loves patterns and systems, and it is set up to operate within its current framework. It can be changed, but it must be taught to deconstruct parts of the current system in order to embrace a new one. When we stick a diet or exercise plan that is dramatically different from our current eating and movement patterns, our brain often rejects the changes. However, with preparation and planning for the change, the brain is more likely to accept these changes. Our counseling team can guide you through this
Body Image Renewal
What if you never lost another pound, but you lost the guilt and shame that has been “weighing you down?” While getting to a healthy weight is important, accepting and enjoying who you are is even more important for long-term health. Research shows that happier people are healthier than people who are unhappy. By renewing the way you see yourself as a person, your life and its purpose, and your body and its appearance, you can enjoy a happier life. Our counseling team can help you rebuild.
Everyone wants to change, but change demands desire and discipline before it becomes delightful. There is always the agony of choice before the promise of change. -Larry Lea
