A Closer Look at Noom Weight Loss Program
Even if you have the meal plan clicking and the exercise routine down, your mind needs to break its previous habits for long-term weight loss. Noom uses behavior change psychology to alter your unhealthy habits for the long run!
One thing that doesn’t seem to change no matter how old I get or how many trips around the sun I have traveled, I always make some New Year’s Resolutions and set some goals for the year ahead. Always. And sure, the goals and resolutions have changed pretty drastically between by pre-kid and two-kid life, but some aspects certainly stay the same. One thing that is always a common recurrence each year is some sort of goal to better myself physically. I know that I am not alone in this.
This year, however, the goal is a little different. You see, last year I started focusing on losing a sizable (healthy) amount of weight. After half a year of sticking that plan and working one on one with a food coach, I am very excited to share that I am halfway to my goal, having lost (and kept off!) more than 30 pounds. The main focus has been my food, not as much emphasis on exercise. I have certainly changed a lot of my old mindset and have broken a lot of my emotional attachments to food, but I still have work to do.
One HUGE thing that I have learned about myself (which I think I already knew but didn’t want to admit): I need accountability. That seems to be the biggest key to my success. I need to be held accountable for my actions, decisions, and food choices… and I need someone to guide me and to get me back on track when I fall off the wagon.
The holiday months were certainly challenging, as they tend to be, and I found myself making better choices than I would have before, but there was still room for improvement.
As I kick off 2019 and look at my goals and resolutions for the year ahead, I am resolving to lose the second half of that weight and I know that I have some mental hurdles to tackle in order to get there. I just signed up for the Noom weight loss app!
A little bit about Noom:
:: Noom is an app-based weight loss program that offers habit change psychology and small goals that will help you healthy lifestyle. (Baby steps! Just my style!)
:: Noom uses cutting-edge technology to accurately monitor your progress and provide expert advice and analysis to keep you on track.
:: By making the experience relevant to who you are, your goals, and your interactions, they provide a personalized plan that makes a balanced, healthy life attainable and fun.
So, I’m all signed up and already completed the first few tasks on the app. I have looked around on the app and am loving all the recipes and other tools. Tomorrow is my actual first day using the program. I will be using the app in addition to the food coach I have been using since last spring and I am hoping that by about summer, I am at or very very close to my goal. I am so excited and motivated!
I’ll check in on this post from time to time and update how my experience is going with Noom. I encourage you to check it out and let me know if you decide to join me!
