Weight Loss Q & A

Your Body By Design

What is medical weight loss?

Being overweight or obese is a struggle that many people deal with, finding it difficult — even impossible — to shed those extra pounds.

One of the most important things to remember is that there's no temporary fix for weight loss. The best way to achieve a healthy lifestyle and attain your weight loss goals is to implement a lifelong strategy that maintains proper eating and exercising habits, and keeps excess weight off.

Medical supervision during weight loss provides you with a plan that is customized to your specific needs. Choosing to work with a medical professional offers a safe way to lose excess weight, keep that weight off, and achieve a healthier lifestyle.

With a medically supervised weight loss program, the practitioners at Your Body by Design Medispa and their partner, Rosebud Weight Loss can determine the proper intensity to start your exercise and diet programs and provide accountability throughout the process.

Why is weight loss important?

Whether you’re slightly overweight or notably obese, healthy weight loss can drastically improve your overall health and lifestyle. Losing just 5-10% of your total body weight can produce significant health benefits, such as improving your blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and blood cholesterol.

Maintaining healthy weight loss can provide other important benefits as well. The National Weight Control Registry found that individuals who maintain healthy weight loss notice improvements in their self-confidence, physical mobility, energy levels, and general mood.

What are the risks associated with being overweight?

Being overweight or obese doesn’t just affect your confidence and appearance, it can cause serious complications in many areas of your overall health. A few of the health risks associated with being overweight or obese include:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Breathing problems
  • Gallstones

When it comes to weight loss, it’s important to understand that seemingly small changes can have a positive impact on your overall health.

If weight loss is an issue for you, consider a professional medical weight loss program.
