If your weight is not contributing to health issues, you may not need to lose weight - for many people, it is about stopping weight gain from happening as the years go on and negatively impacting your health longterm. The first step is to determine what factors are contributing to your weight and your health. As little as 5-10% weight loss can have a positive impact on health outcomes. It is important to remember that health and wellness outcomes will occur with any amount of weight loss. You are not a failure if you haven’t achieved your initial desired amount of weight. Your Best Weight is the weight that you achieve while consuming the least amount of calories from a healthy intake of food and by doing the most physical activity you can tolerate - while truly enjoying your life. Talk to your healthcare provider about how you can discover your best weight.
