Let’s face it. The weight loss journey is anything but easy. For some people, shedding those pounds just seems so out of reach. For others, the lost weight returns and much quicker too, after a few months.
If you’ve committed to losing weight and are still not seeing the right results, you may be missing an important piece of the puzzle — a health coach, or more specifically, a weight loss coach.
What is a weight loss coach?
They’re exactly as they sound — a professional coach that helps you achieve your weight loss goals. Dr. Shri O. Noel, our resident weight loss coach at Step by Step Wellness & Weight Loss provides a variety of services, from motivation to dietary guidance and even emotional support.
If you’re looking to lose weight effectively and live a healthier lifestyle, she’s here to help you make realistic changes that lead to big long-term results.
With that in mind, here are four reasons why you may need to enlist a weight loss coach.
1. You can't do it alone
Getting started with weight loss is often easy. There is already an abundance of diets and fitness regimens all readily accessible. Plus, you’re super pumped about the prospect of achieving your ideal body weight, so motivation is no issue. However, a few weeks down the line, things start slipping, and before you know it, you’re back to your pre-weight-loss journey state.
A weight loss coach can help make sure that doesn't happen. They will help you maintain focus on your goals when it gets challenging to achieve them. Remember, there’s no reason to go through your weight loss journey alone. And hiring a professional who is committed to helping you attain the perfect body dimensions is simply the smart way to go about it.
2. You get a personalized weight loss plan
Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all process. That’s why it doesn't make much sense to compare your progress with that of anyone else. If you are to truly reach your weight loss goals, it must be through a process specifically tailored to your situation.
A weight loss coach can create a personalized plan that suits your individual needs and lifestyle. They can help you identify areas where you may be struggling, and provide solutions to overcome these challenges.
3. You get someone to hold you accountable
One of the biggest reasons we fail to achieve our fitness goals is that we have no one to keep us honest. It’s all too easy to make unhealthy choices and deviate from your weight loss plan when there is no one to hold you accountable.
A weight loss coach can ensure accountability to help you stick to your goals. They can help you stay on track, remind you of why you started, and provide guidance when you feel like giving up. They’re also there to provide motivation and encouragement when you need it most. Furthermore, they can help you celebrate your successes and stay positive even when the going gets tough.
4. You get professional advice
A weight loss coach can educate you on healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes that can help you achieve your goals. They can provide you with the knowledge and tools necessary to make sustainable changes and achieve long-term success.
At Step by Step Wellness, your weight loss coach is also there to provide emotional support during your weight loss journey. We’re here to listen and offer guidance, and can help you overcome obstacles that may be hindering your progress.
