Year after year, “lose weight” tops the list of most popular New Year’s resolutions. And it’s no wonder, considering three quarters of American adults is either overweight or clinically obese.

But according to U.S. News & World Report, nearly 80 percent of those who make this resolution to lose weight will end up abandoning their plan to slim down by February.

In fact, at medical weight loss clinics across the country, there is an increase in people signing up in February and March, not January. Often times, these people have tried to lose weight on their own or with a commercial weight loss program, but it wasn’t working.

More often than not, people bite off more than they can chew when it comes to weight loss. Without guidance, it is difficult to conquer such a task. Furthermore, people often fail to lose weight because they focus on their weight loss, instead of their holistic health.

It’s important to shift your focus from weight loss to wellness.

Losing weight is not impossible, but it is also not easy. Add to that factors such as a slow metabolism from past yo-yo dieting, menopause, medical conditions and medications that can cause weight gain, food addictions, and more, and it’s easy to see why so many people struggle to win their battle with the bulge.

Losing weight is not just about eating the right foods, counting calories, and exercising – although those all do play an important role – it’s also about understanding what is causing your weight issues and responding with a program tailored to meet those challenges. Weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all effort.

So, if you have tried to lose weight and it isn’t working, now is a great time to give medical weight loss a try rather than giving up.

Weight loss is a medical problem which means a detailed medical history report and body composition analysis are required to make sure that your vitals are where they should be so your program can fit you perfectly.

Time and time again, people have tried almost everything else, except the medical weight loss approach.

So please, for the sake of your health, don’t give up. It is possible to lose the weight you want to lose once and for all and to get from where you are to where you want to be.
