Objection: I Can Lose the Weight by Myself
If you have tried dieting on your own in the past, you know how isolated that makes you feel. You are eating differently than the rest of your family, and when you get food cravings, you have to fight to stand strong. However, if you have someone else to support you while you lose weight, you have a greater chance of being successful and reaching your goals..
You can lose up to 10 percent of your body weight by working with a behavioral weight-loss* therapist, according to Women’s Health Magazine, and you’ll be more likely to keep the weight off long-term*. With some medically-based support, you’ll be breezing through nine holes at the Roy Kizer Golf Course before you know it.
Objection: I Just Need to Exercise More
Realistically speaking, exercise alone does not peel off the pounds. It takes both physical activity and healthy nutrition together to get truly fit. Doing one without the other is a recipe for discouragement. You can get on the right track with a proven nutrition and exercise plan designed specifically for you. Once you get with the program, you will find yourself consistently losing* unwanted pounds while gaining strength and endurance.
Objection: I’m Healthy for My Weight
You may feel pretty good despite those extra pounds you can’t seem to shed. However, excess weight raises your risk of developing heart disease or other serious health conditions, including:
- Respiratory disease
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Certain types of cancer
By achieving and keeping a healthy weight, you can lower your risk of serious illness. That gives you plenty of quality time to attend an open air concert at the amphitheater, take a dip at Barton Springs or stroll through Zilker Park.
