A New Way to Think about Rate of Weight Loss
CARE Weight Loss & Lifestyle Program allows you to decide what rate of weight loss is best for you within the recommended guideline of a maximum rate of loss of two pounds per week. In fact, we encourage you to consider making your most modest goals to-date which might even be 1/4-1/2 pound per week.
We know what you are already thinking and would love to present you with an alternative perspective. Rather than being overwhelmed by thinking how long it might take you to reach your goal weight at this pace, we would like you to consider the benefits that a modest rate of weight loss could offer.
Benefits of Slower Rates of Weight Loss
1. Peace of mind knowing that realistic continued forward progress is better than the hamster wheel of rapid weight loss followed by regaining the loss. Today, so many people start their 1,000 step journey to a healthy lifestyle sprinting only to become exhausted a short way in, revert back to bad patterns and the starting line only to become frustrated enough over time to start the sprint again (never to reach the destination). Try a new way. Try taking just one step at a time. Enjoy the peace of mind that can result from pacing yourself.
2. Enjoy making changes within your real life rather than in lieu of it. A strength of CARE is that it teaches you how to make incremental changes within your current life rather than handing you a list of expectations to fit in on top of an already full life. When you try to make all the changes defined in a book all at once, it’s like pushing your whole life behind a dam, altering how you naturally do everything to ensure you eat ALL the right food AND exercise way more than you normally do – everyday just like you are suppose to. Until the dam cracks (usually within 4-6 weeks) and your real life comes flooding back in. CARE teaches you how to make small changes within the current of life, helping you navigate those waters naturally in the direction you want.
3. Feel empowered knowing you set your own goals. Every member of CARE has different priorities (and they should). For some, first improving their diet quality is more important than rate of weight loss. For others, gaining a sense of control over their kitchens and meal planning warrants their first energy. This is another strength of CARE Weight Loss & Lifestyle Program. CARE gives you guidance on how to decipher this for yourself. Each step of CARE outlines the goals for that particular step, but you decide how much of it you can tackle given your current schedule and demands. Remember, the goal now is just one step forward everyday to finally reach the destination, no more sprinting.
Your Journey, Your Way
Individual results and rate of weight loss vary in CARE because each individual’s success is only measured against their personal goals. CARE first helps you decide and set up those goals and then becomes your mentor in helping you overcome hurdles to achieving them. But an essential part to this success is your participation and commitment. You are ultimately accountable for implementing the tools you learn and this accountability is ultimately what determines the results you achieve.
