Since the inception of FIT Medical Weight Loss, our goal has always been to tackle weight loss from a healthy perspective. From our point of view this meant no shakes, no packaged meals and no fad diets. There is no one size fits all methodology but rather a personalized plan designed with you in mind. We listen to your goals, take a full health history and devise a plan to meet your unique lifestyle.
As the cooler weather makes way for a spot of sunshine, you can’t help but feel invigorated. The temperature change encourages you to get out and about, and exercising outdoors no longer becomes such a chore. Just like you do with your home or your wardrobe, use the extra motivation to spring clean your diet, focusing on healthy eating and breaking old habits. When you feel good, eat fresh and exercise more, weight loss occurs naturally.
Often when we think of exercise, strenuous yoga classes and marathon runs come to mind. It is no wonder then, that we are hesitant about tackling exercise as part of our diet and weight loss regimen. But adding exercise to our daily routine does not have to be that complicated or time-consuming. Regardless of our age or fitness level, there are plenty of simple exercises we can try to maximize our movement.
It's time you started celebrating your weight loss. Each pound lost through FIT Medical Weight Loss is a huge achievement on your part. And what better way to celebrate the achievement of your goals than with a delicious, yet seemingly decadent (and healthy) mocktail. A mocktail, due to the nature of its concoction, does not require alcohol. It is a drink which adds a bit of sparkle to your ordinary day, allowing you to stick to your diet.
When you are in the process of losing weight, it is so easy to have a love/hate relationship with your body. But loving yourself as you are during your weight loss program – at every size – is important. In fact, self-love is at the center of your decision to be the healthiest and fittest you possible. Don’t let those negative thoughts get you down. You are more than your weight or your dress size - much more. Remember that you are ALWAYS worth the effort.
