Weight loss often requires breaking old habits and forming new ones. Neither of those requirements are easy and together, can be an insurmountable challenge for many. A live in weight loss camp can help provide the tools to overcome these barriers and finally get off of the weight loss rollercoaster. Here are five benefits of joining a weight loss camp.
Break Away from Normal Routines
Often, people struggle with weight loss because of the difficulty of developing new patterns in their lives. These patterns may range from a morning coffee run topped off with a doughnut to sleeping in instead of waking up early for a walk before work. When people are in a new environment, they cannot rely on the same old habit triggers they have at home. New and improved routines are formed more easily.
Many people start diets or exercise routines over and over, without any regular check in on progress with a third party. For many, just knowing that they will have to revisit their goals on a regular basis can provide the boost they need to kick-start their weight loss journey.
Sharing the Experience with a Community
In addition to accountability, sharing the experience with others in a similar place helps provide emotional support and a sense of belonging. Campers can learn, grow and discuss new experiences together, without fear of judgment.
An Open Learning Environment
Trying new things for the first time with others who are also in a learning mindset removes a lot of the nervousness of trying something new for the first time, whether it’s a new exercise or cooking a new dish. After all, no one is born knowing how to cook kale!
Coaching on How to Apply Habits at Home
No matter how wonderful your camp experience is, the ultimate goal is to return home armed with the habits and knowledge that will make your weight loss an enduring success. The journey does not end when you leave the camp. Experienced coaches can help you formulate a plan for how you will continue your weight loss success when you return home to your former habits, relationships and comfort patterns.
Consider a live-in weight loss camp for a jumpstart to permanent weight loss. Sharing the experience outside your normal environment provides a unique opportunity to create meaningful and lasting change in your health and well-being.
