The Weight Loss Science of Hope Triumphs of Health: The Victories that Thrill and Inspire Me - Part 2
When people lose weight and improve their health, a whole host of wonderful things happen.
Research shows that losing just 5-10% of initial body weight can greatly improve metabolic, physical, and mental health. For someone who weighs 200 pounds, a 10-20 pound loss moves them to higher ground.
Better health begins as the first pound is shed and amplifies with each subsequent pound.
Many strive to lose more, thinking it’s only worth it if they lose it all in one big, inspiring push. Then they wind up feeling overwhelmed…and that they’ve failed by not reaching their big goals.
Yet, losing just a few pounds positively improves your current and future health.
The 6 pounds you lose on your way to your big goal of 60 has a greater impact than you imagine.
As a medical weight loss specialist, it is a joy to see how much better people feel—and are—when they lose weight. Whether you have 5-10 pounds to lose or more, health always improves with weight loss. And the risk of developing new conditions declines.
And if the weight loss is maintained, the benefits continue—indefinitely.
