Weight loss or losing weight can become a major preoccupation for some in today’s seemingly paradoxical society of slim modeling and fast food. While unhealthy eating is easily accessible and affordable, appearing thin or physically fit is a top priority for some.
Benefits of a Healthy Weight
• reduced stress
• reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke
• protects against some cancers
• reduced risk of infertility
• reduced the risk of arthritis
Acquiring a healthy lifestyle is perhaps most important, and this indeed may involve weight loss. A therapist can help build boundaries surrounding food and eating habits, allowing clients to recognize triggers for emotional eating or other unhealthy patterns. Therapy can also provide self-motivation to get life back in control, furnishing stability in one’s diet.
