This is the time of year when you’ll start to see articles about avoiding weight loss over the holidays. With Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years fast approaching, it’s an easy time of year to pack on the pounds if you’re not attentive to healthy eating and limiting the treats.
How Would It Feel To Lose 30 Pounds by Christmas?
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you’re going to be constantly reminded of its approach. How would it feel to use that as motivation to give yourself an amazing gift for the end of the year, and lose 30 pounds by Christmas?
Imagine starting the new year 30 pounds (or more!) lighter. Think of the energy you’ll have, the aches that will leave you, and the reaction of your friends and family as they see you’ve taken action to get healthier!
For example, did you know that losing 30 pounds by Christmas will take about 120 pounds of pressure off of your knees?
Common Benefits of Weight Loss Include:
- feeling more energetic
- increasing your likelihood of promotion at work
- improving blood sugar control / prediabetes
- significantly reduced chance of getting Type 2 diabetes
- reduced joint pain and inflammation
- saving money on your food bill (especially that fast food and junk food!)
- improved sex drive (extra weight actually reduces testosterone in men)
- improved sexual satisfaction
- a healthier family (as you improve your diet, your family tends to improve too)
- increase “good” cholesterol and reduce “bad” cholesterol
- lower high blood pressure
- improve sleep / feel more rested / reduce snoring
- reduce chances of heart disease and stroke
“How Much Weight Can I Lose by Christmas?”
I hear this question frequently around the holidays. Everyone wants to look good, and they wonder how much weight they can lose before a specific event or party. Perhaps a Christmas Eve party with friends, Christmas with relatives, a Holiday office party or a big New Years eve bash.
Of course, it can be dangerous to go on a crash diet to try to lose as much as you can before a specific date. Crash diets can lead to a lot of health complications, and will make it so much harder to continue losing weight after and maintain weight loss. However, medical weight loss isn’t a “crash diet”, and at dietMD Hawaii, our patients frequently lose up to 30 pounds within the first month. This means if you get started soon, losing 30 pounds by Christmas can be an achievable goal, and still be a healthy amount of weight loss for you.
We don’t do fad diets here, or sell you packaged foods you’ll become dependent on. We teach you how to lose weight in a healthy manner, without discomfort, while eating real food. We help you reprogram your metabolism to drop pounds and keep them off, and learn about lifestyle changes that will work for you long term to reach a healthy weight and stay there.
What an amazing gift that would be for yourself this holiday season!
Do You Want To Lose Weight Badly Enough To Make A Decision Now?
The decision to lose weight is very personal, and you have to be committed. It’s important to remember that it is the holiday season. Temptations are everywhere, and you’ll have to commit yourself to reduce your chances of binge eating or “cheating”. We’ve got lots of support for you, though, and tips on how to get through this with ease.
If necessary, we can include prescription appetite suppression in your medical weight loss program. Check out our many testimonials – our medical weight loss patients frequently mention that they didn’t experience hunger and that their weight loss with dietMD Hawaii was easier than expected – even though many of them had tried MANY other ways to lose weight.
To make things easier, start working on your weight loss as early as possible. Instead of waiting until a couple of weeks before Christmas, get started right away. If you’re in Hawaii, give us a call at (808) 551-4348 or fill out the online form to schedule your no-obligation appointment with me and we’ll make a plan together for you to greet the new year at least 30 pounds slimmer!
