How Emotional Support From a Professional Can Enhance Weight Control

There’s no doubt about it — losing weight isn’t easy. Millions of Americans struggle to shed unwanted pounds each year, but our national obesity rates are rising. 

Over 30% of adults in Virginia and over 42% of American adults are obese or overweight. The number is even higher for people of color, with nearly 50% at an unhealthy body mass index (BMI). 

If you’re been struggling to lose weight, there’s a better way. Our compassionate care providers at Balance Wellspace offer medical weight loss to our patients in Roanoke, Virginia. 

With our program, you lose weight quickly but safely following healthy eating guidelines, a manageable exercise regimen, and a supplement plan. 

More importantly, you receive expert weight loss counseling to ensure you stay on track and keep the pounds off so that once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Read on to learn how emotional support from a professional can enhance your weight loss efforts.

What’s involved in medical weight loss?

At Balance Wellspace, your medical weight loss program is holistically designed by our physician’s assistant, Oliva Ferguson, PA-C, to meet your personal food preferences, medical history, and current lifestyle. She custom-designs your program so you can safely and quickly reach your weight loss goals.

Your personalized weight loss plan helps instill healthy eating habits you can maintain over your lifetime. Our nutritional counseling ensures your food plan is balanced and designed to avoid the extremes that leave you hungry and back where you started as found in many fad diet programs.

We also evaluate your activity level and design an exercise regimen that works for you. Following the guidelines provided, you burn fat, improve your energy and stamina levels, and boost your overall fitness and mobility. 

Getting into the habit of exercising also helps you maintain your goal weight in the future.  

Other key aspects of the medical weight loss plan at Balance Wellspace include regular blood work to determine which nutritional supplements best help you and lipotropic injections, which contain high doses of fat-burning compounds to increase your metabolism and boost your energy. 

How does emotional support help me control my weight?

The emotional support we offer through our counseling is an integral part of your weight loss journey at Balance Wellspace. We work to help you shift your mindset about food and exercise and believe in your ability to succeed. 

In addition to recording your vital statistics to monitor your progress and make any necessary changes as you lose weight, we provide valuable education to help keep you on track both during the program and once you’ve completed it. 

Every step of the way, we encourage you through regular check-ins that keep you accountable and allow us to make any changes necessary to keep you on track. 

With Balance Wellspace in your corner, celebrating your milestones and giving you support, excess pounds become a thing of the past.

When should I consider medical weight loss?

Our medical weight loss program is a good fit for you if you’ve tried to lose weight on your own but haven’t had success or keep regaining the weight you lose. And if you have a medical condition that makes it especially hard to lose weight or exercise, our medical weight loss program can help.

For our patients with certain health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, or hypertension, medical weight loss can improve or even reverse your condition. Even modest amounts of weight loss can have a dramatic impact
