About Weight Loss Support

Weight loss involves attaining and maintaining a healthy weight for your height and build. Approximately 65% of Americans are overweight and 33% are considered obese. Looking at these statistics, it is clear that losing weight can be a very difficult challenge for many people. There are many factors that contribute to a person being overweight such as poor health habits, lifestyle, stress, emotional eating, food addiction, and physiological conditions.

Maintaining a healthy body weight is important for both physical and emotional well-being. Not only is excessive weight and obesity associated with a number of physiological problems including, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and osteoarthritis; but being overweight is also associated with emotional difficulties such as depression, low self-esteem, and social withdrawal.

Therapy is an important supplement to weight loss, and is ideally accompanied by nutritional counseling, physician monitoring, and the support of friends and family. Including individual and/or group therapy that is geared toward weight loss and weight management can be a highly effective tool for success.
