Setting Realistic Goals
The key to a successful weight loss journey is setting realistic and achievable goals. Instead of aiming for drastic changes, focus on small, sustainable steps. On average, MA Clinical Services patients are losing an average of 2-3lbs per week on semaglutide therapy, when paired with dietary changes and exercise. Losing too much weight too quickly can be dangerous, which is another reason that slow, steady, realistic goals are best. Whether it’s losing a certain number of pounds per month or incorporating healthier eating habits, setting specific and attainable goals will keep you motivated throughout the year.
Think about who your weight loss will positively impact, besides yourself. Will you be able to more easily play with your kids or grandkids? Will you be able to get into a new hobby with your spouse? Setting both intrinsic and extrinsic goals can be a huge motivator for individuals.
Creating a Personalized Plan
No two weight loss journeys are the same. Tailor your plan to your unique needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Consider consulting with a professional at MA Clinical Services to create a personalized plan that includes nutrition guidance, exercise routines, behavioral strategies, and semaglutide treatment for long-term success.
At MA Clinical Services, we tailor each dose of semaglutide to each individual patient and their side effects, weight loss goals, and lifestyle. We can change a dose of medication by as little at 0.05mg on a week-by-week basis, which creates the ultimate personalization for each individual patient.
Incorporating Healthy Habits
Weight loss is not just about shedding pounds; it’s about adopting a healthier lifestyle. Explore ways to incorporate healthy habits into your daily routine, such as meal prepping, staying hydrated, and getting enough sleep. Small changes can lead to significant results over time.
