5 Reasons to Consider Professional Support for Weight Loss

If weight control were easy, the majority of adults in the United States wouldn’t likely be overweight or obese. That’s why professional support is essential for ongoing weight loss success. From easing the emotional challenges to helping you best reap the benefits of healthy weight loss, the reasons to consider such support is important.

Dr. Javier Sosa and our team at Woodlands Primary Healthcare are pleased to provide supervised weight loss programs, customized to meet individual needs. If you’re bothered by excess pounds, read on to learn about five professional support advantages of medical weight loss.

1. Feeling less alone

Given that weight loss needs are unique, it can be easy to feel isolated while attempting it on your own. Professional support turns that solitary into a team effort, lessening the emotional burden you might otherwise feel from having to figure out the how-tos and navigating the challenges that arise.

2. Gaining motivation

It isn’t always easy to stay motivated while losing weight, especially when changing your diet and exercise habits feel difficult. And given that weight loss takes time, staying motivated throughout the process matters for short-term and long-term success. Research shows that professional advice can help people feel more motivated. And if you feel your motivation slipping, you can reach out to our team for support.

3. Better odds of long-term success

Losing weight is one thing. Keeping the excess pounds off is another. Research shows that effective treatment of obesity requires ongoing clinical attention and appropriate counseling, including ways to create sustainable and healthy behavior changes. By working with our team, you know that the efforts you're making are more likely to pay off for good.

4. Improved overall health

As you begin weight loss with the support of our professional team, you’ll also invite myriad related health benefits, such as:

5. Access to medical weight loss treatments

Working toward your weight loss goals with our qualified medical professionals makes professional treatments available. In addition to nutritional counseling and exercise guidance, our team at Woodlands Primary Care offers prescription weight loss medications for people who qualify.
