Lose Weight and Celebrate!
What are all these poster boards we see everywhere? Why are they all over your center walls? If you are asking this question then you have likely NOT been to one of our weight loss centers yet. Any Metabolic client can tell you, without pause, that these are Pounds Lost Boards; places of celebration, where most of us can show you just exactly where we signed our name on the 10, 20 or 30-pound board.
Weight loss takes work, it takes dedication, and it takes a bit of chutzpah. You've put on your brave pants, said no thank you to your coworkers birthday cake (why are there so many!), and prepared your breakfast every day for weeks...you deserve to celebrate, to own your success, to memorialize your awesomeness. It's this celebration, this spirit, this sense of united purpose that encompasses what we, at MRC, lovingly call "pounds lost boards".
Research tells us that when you are trying to accomplish something you need to set mini-goals, small attainable goals, like a road map dotted with stops along the way that let you know you are on your way to reaching the end goal. Saying "I need to lose 50 pounds" might sound daunting, even hopeless. But saying "I am going to sign my 10-pound board next week" sounds absolutely doable. It's smart to set small goals that you can reach, each small goal helps to build your confidence, it's one more rung on the ladder. We often start this weight loss journey with a bag full of self-doubt, telling ourselves things like; I will fail, I am not strong enough, It's too hard, but then something magical happens, we see a bit of success and the spark has been lit! With every board you sign, every pound you lose, every minute you exercise, you are proving those doubts in your mind wrong, and you are rewriting the script.
