Weight Management: A Journey Towards A Healthier You


Weight management offers numerous health benefits, including reduced blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol levels, and relief from knee and low back pain. However, for many, this task can seem difficult, despite the well-established advantages it brings. At Nyaho Medical Centre, we believe in guiding you through this journey to achieve a healthier and happier life.

Understanding Your Motivation

When you have decided on the weight management journey, you need to first examine the reason behind this decision. Is it for health reasons? Or are you trying to reach an impossible ideal?  Whatever the reason, you need to accept yourself and the limitations of your unique set of genetics (the DNAFit test can be used to assess this). Some body proportions are unlikely to change much, regardless of how much effort you put into it without tweaking specific elements in the weight management program. At the end of the day, you need to accept and believe that while you are not where you want to be, you are still worthy and a valuable person even as you are.

Setting SMART Goals

To make progress, set Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound (SMART) goals. Break down your objectives into smaller, manageable ones. Instead of a lofty goal like “gain 10kg in a year,” opt for “gain 1 kg a month” or vice versa. This makes it visible to reach and achievable. Celebrate each small win, as it will also motivate you on your journey.

Tools to Aid Your Progress

Monitoring your progress is crucial for successful weight management. Consider using a measuring scale or tape measure to track changes in weight or specific body parts. Keeping a journal can also be beneficial, as it allows you to write down your anxieties and fears, as they occur to you. But don’t let them hold you back.

Seek Expert Advice

Don’t hesitate to consult with experts in the field, dieticians, personal trainers, weight coaches, doctors, nurses or even a friend who has done what you want to do. Ask them how you can go about it and ways to avoid common pitfalls. Also, utilize online resources and support groups for additional guidance.


Take Action

Once you’ve laid the groundwork, it’s time to begin the weight management process actively. All too often, people talk about losing or gaining weight without taking any action. Don’t let time pass you by without making a positive change.

Avoid fads and plans that promise quick results. Several studies confirm that changes that occur over a long period are more likely to remain as opposed to sudden changes. Sudden changes may get you the affirmation you want, but the results are mostly temporary and sometimes even harmful to your health.

Exercise also plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Besides shaping your physique, regular exercise also positively impacts your mood and overall well-being. Consider involving friends in your fitness routine to stay motivated and committed to your goals.

Weight management ultimately must be done with a positive mindset. It must be done with the singular goal of developing a better you. Gradually, with consistent effort, dedication, and the right support, you can achieve your desired outcome.

At Nyaho Medical Centre, we’re here to support you throughout your weight management journey. Remember that it’s not just about reaching a specific weight; it’s about embracing a healthier and more fulfilling life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals and lead a happier, healthier future
