I Think I Need Some Help Getting This Excess Weight Off

Carrying extra weight can impact every aspect of your daily life, from your physical and mental health to your self-confidence. Unfortunately, the ongoing frustration of trying to shed those pounds without seeing results often causes many people to stop trying.

But you don’t have to give up! There are ways you can reach your ideal weight and maintain your results.

Luciana Thompson, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, and our experienced providers at Compass Mental Health & Wellness in Houston see the challenges people face when trying to lose weight. That’s why we want to help. We know there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. We offer supervised weight loss management programs tailored to each person in our care.

Here’s how our weight loss management programs can help you reach a healthy weight and keep it there.

Why losing weight can be hard on your own

People often oversimplify weight loss by saying you just have to eat less and exercise more to lose unwanted pounds. This may work for some individuals, but the formula for successful, long-term results is often far more complicated for most people — especially if they have a lot of weight to lose.

In most cases, losing weight and keeping it off requires personalized support and long-term strategies. That’s because numerous factors play a role in weight gain and weight loss, such as:

When you work with our experts in a medical weight loss program, we can help identify how these factors impact your success. Then, we create a personalized approach to help you learn to address them. But it doesn’t stop there.

People in our program not only get the added advantage of our expertise, but they end up with a partner and cheerleader on every step of their weight loss journey.

What a weight loss management program involves

Our programs start with a consultation so we can get to know you and better understand the challenges you’ve faced in reaching or maintaining a healthy weight. During this one-on-one appointment, we perform physical and neurological exams, discuss your medical history, and talk about your overall goals for weight loss. 

What we learn during this time provides the framework for your customized treatment strategy. You can expect your program to help you reshape your lifestyle and learn healthy new habits designed specifically for your metabolism and unique needs, such as:

If you still struggle to lose weight, we could also recommend nutritional supplements and prescription medications. These medicines can help suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism, so you can start seeing results while learning the new habits you need to achieve long-term results.

Finally, we monitor and track your progress every step of the way, ensuring you get the support you need to reach your goals. And, since we tailor the entire program to your unique needs, we can also make adjustments as you go to ensure you get results.

Healthy weight loss isn’t easy, but you don’t have to do it alone. To get the help you need, call 281-957-3749 or book an appointment online with Compass Mental Health & Wellness today.
