Specific goals and time-limited programs can often be easier than maintaining the change you have achieved. Unfortunately this can lead to yo-yo weight loss/gain, frustration, or throwing in the towel. This session will investigate the many reasons an individual reaches for certain foods, over-eats, and struggles to make it to the gym — even when they know that it works.
Different therapeutic techniques can be employed to allow you to be your own therapist and keep yourself on track — at least two therapeutic theories will be discussed. Attendees will leave with the tools needed to put a success plan in place. Examples will come from participants, therapeutic clients, myself, and my brief appearance on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
