Are you a parent that's struggling with trying to lose weight? Do you have a child who's overweight? Is more than one person in your family struggling with weight loss? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then weight loss coaching may be a wise choice for you and your family.
As reported by the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, between 16 and 33 percent of children and adolescents are obese, and unhealthy weight gain due to lack of exercise and poor diet causes more than 300,000 deaths per year. These are astounding and hard to swallow statistics. But thankfully, resources, such as coaches, are working in an attempt to reduce these numbers.
A weight loss coach works with individuals differently than most typical weight loss plans, which usually just focus on what to eat or not to eat and what to do to lose weight. The difference when working with a coach is the coach helps the individual identify what's holding him or her back from losing weight and helps the individual make a mindset shift, which is the first critical step in achieving anything we want in life, including weight loss.
By bringing a successful coach into your home to work with you and/or your family, you will be providing support for those in your family who are having a hard time achieving their weight loss goals. In addition, you will be teaching your children healthy habits to maintain happiness and health in their lives.
Another benefit of hiring a coach is that the coach can work with the family so they understand the needs of those who are trying to lose weight. This allows the family to work together and build a bond to help those in the family who need to lose the weight.
Another great thing about coaching and working to shift the mindset of how you approach losing weight is that it also means that in shifting your mindset about how you approach losing weight, you'll also be shifting your mindset on how you look at your life as a whole. In other words, the positive reinforcement that comes from working with a coach will dovetail into other aspects of you and/or your family's life. How great is that?!?
If you are an individual, a family member with a loved one with a weight problem, or a parent of a child you're concerned about in regards to weight, then working with a weight loss coach is an invaluable resource to help you or those you love get on the right path to a healthier lifestyle and happier life.
