Make Your Future Healthier
(Page 2 of 2)
While you might be able to lose weight simply by cutting back on calories, you won’t be able to keep the weight off. Before starting a fitness program, you need to know your starting place. Talk to your doctor to find out your body mass index (BMI), weight and blood pressure, and to get recommendations on what kinds of activities are safe for you to begin.
It can also be quite helpful to have an exercise buddy, or even a group. Not only will it help you be more accountable to sticking to your plan, a buddy or buddies can also make exercising much more fun.
Making the Commitment
Taking care of your body isn’t about fitting into a smaller size of jeans or dress. It’s about making a long-term commitment to your health.
Some people have found that a helpful way to get started on the right track is to go to a health and fitness resort. Expert teams can not only help people begin the weight loss process, but can also give the education and support needed to maintain their efforts once they leave.
“Understanding what is going on inside you, and being properly educated on how to take care of yourself, gives you the advantages you need to succeed,” says Dr. Sorenson.
He says that when choosing a health and fitness resort, make sure it matches your personal goals.
“Do you want a militaristic approach, or a more supportive and nurturing environment? We believe it’s important to treat our guests with respect and to nurture them so they are equipped to take what they have learned home with them and apply it to the rest of their lives.”
Your health is too important to ignore. Take steps today to help ensure you’ll have a healthier and happier future. You can learn more about the programs at NIHF at www.NIHF.com.
