Starting the first phase of your journey: awareness
Everyone’s motivation for starting their weight loss journey is different. So how do you know when it’s time? Here are 5 key signs you’re ready to start this waist loss journey today. At New Way Health Coach, we understand the importance of taking charge of your physical and emotional health–and weight gain can play a key part in both.
- Grogginess and Lack of Energy:
Always feeling perpetually tired and groggy can be a sign that your body is not functioning well. Excess weight can lead to fatigue and reduced energy levels, and at the same time, underlying conditions can cause fatigue and weight gain. When you start your 12 week weight loss program with New Way Health Coach, we’ll help you address any underlying health issues that might be draining your energy. We’ll also help you introduce nutritious and healing foods into your diet so you can restore your energy levels and start feeling invigorated and restored.
- Difficulty Living Your Best Life:
If excess weight is holding you back from fully enjoying life and pursuing your passions, it’s time to consider starting this weight loss journey. It’s not all about how you look, it’s far more important how you feel. If your weight is making daily tasks challenging and keeping you feeling down, then it might be time to shake things up so you can step out of the spiral and into your best life. You’d be amazed how much you can achieve when you implement our holistic approach.
- Risk Factors:
Genetic factors can play a role in weight gain and the development of certain health conditions. If you have a family history of heart disease, type 2 diabetes or related health issues, it’s essential to address these risk factors. The great news is that although genetic factors play a role; they’re not the entire picture. Daily choices and environment have a larger influence on epigenetics–how your body reads a DNA sequence.
- Mental Health Concerns:
Anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns can be intertwined with weight-related issues. Emotional eating, as discussed in our previous blog post, can be a coping mechanism for emotional distress. Did you know that your gut health and mental health are actually connected? The brain can link feelings of anxiety or stress to intestinal issues. Our mind-body-spirit approach helps you to look at the whole picture so you can get back to feeling great!
- Sleep Issues:
Struggling with sleep disturbances or insomnia can be linked to weight gain and vice versa. Poor sleep affects hormone regulation, appetite, and energy levels, making it difficult to maintain a healthy weight. Shedding extra pounds has been shown to reduce some of the most common causes of sleep disturbance like snoring and sleep apnea.
Recognizing these five signs can be the catalyst for a transformative weight loss journey. But have you also noticed that they’re all connected? Your body is an intricate and interwoven system. How you feel emotionally affects how your body feels and how your body feels affects how you feel emotionally. Which is why we believe that addressing the mind, body, and spirit is essential for lasting change and overall well-being. By embarking on our 12-week holistic weight loss program, you can unlock the path to a healthier life filled with vitality. If your weight is getting in the way of your health and happiness, then it’s time.
