The Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness Experts

Our Lake Norman Weight Loss Mission

Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness was started by our current owner, Shannon Schlicher, when she decided to commit her career to helping others accomplish their weight loss and wellness goals. The weight loss programs that are personally designed by our weight loss experts for each patient are created after carefully analyzing each patient’s current health and the path to better overall wellness. 

Our medical team understands that the weight loss journey is more than just a smaller number on the scale. the weight loss journey means overcoming the mental, emotional and physical barriers everyone faces when we push ourselves out of our comfort zone. This is why Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness have a support staff of weight loss experts that are there to guide our patients through the tough times and have a great Facebook Support Group to provide motivation and positivity on the tough days.

Lake Norman Weight Loss & Wellness strives to provide all of the resources necessary for everyone to achieve the weight loss & wellness goals they set for themselves!

What Is Healthy Weight Loss?

It’s normal for anybody attempting to shed pounds to need to get more fit quick. Be that as it may, individuals who get more fit continuously and consistently (around 1 to 2 pounds for every week) are more effective at keeping weight off. Solid weight reduction isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about a progressing way of life that remembers long haul changes for day by day eating and exercise habits. Once you’ve accomplished a sound weight, depend on healthy eating and physical activity to help you keep the weight off over the long haul.

Getting in shape isn’t simple, and it takes responsibility. However, in case you’re prepared to get began, we have a bit by bit manual for help get you headed straight toward weight reduction and better wellbeing.

Even Modest Weight Loss Can Mean Big Benefits

Indeed, even a smaller weight reduction of 5 to 10 percent of your absolute body weight is probably going to deliver medical advantages, for example, enhancements in pulse, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars.

For instance, in the event that you weigh 200 pounds, a 5 percent weight reduction approaches 10 pounds, bringing your weight down to 190 pounds. While this weight may in any case be in the “overweight” or “hefty” range, this unobtrusive weight reduction can diminish your danger factors for persistent illnesses identified with being overweight.

Health Benefits Of Losing Weight

You don’t have to lose hundreds of pounds to enjoy the physical health benefits of weight loss. If you are currently overweight or obese, you may be able to lose just a small amount of weight to improve your overall health. In fact, some studies show that just a 5% to 10% decrease in your weight can change your health.1 Losing weight can mean:

  • Decreased risk of diabetes
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Decreased risk of certain cancers
  • Improved mobility
  • Decreased joint pain
  • Improved blood sugar levels
  • Decreased risk of stroke
  • Reduced back pain
  • Decreased risk or improvement in symptoms of osteoarthritis
  • Decreased risk or improvement in symptoms of sleep apnea

Your Lake Norman weight loss doctor can provide more personalized information about the health benefits you can expect to see when you lose weight. For example, you may be able to decrease or eliminate certain medications or reduce your risk of disease. Your Lake Norman weight loss doctor doctor may also be able to provide a recommendation or referral to a registered dietitian or physical therapist to help you build a healthy weight loss program.

Lifestyle Benefits To Losing Weight

People who have successfully lost weight report:

  • More active social life
  • Greater confidence
  • Better sleep
  • Improved energy
  • Improved sex life
  • Decreased stress
  • Improved body image
  • Improved vitality
  • Improved mood

Weight Loss and Your Relationships:

The medical and lifestyle benefits may be enough to motivate you to stick to a weight-loss program. But some people also try to lose weight to improve the quality of a relationship. For example, you might want to lose weight to save your marriage. 

This is an area where the benefits of losing weight get tricky. While some people have better relationships after weight loss, losing weight to make someone else happy is not always a smart idea. There may be other relationship problems that weight loss won’t solve. And when you diet or exercise to make someone else happy, you might lose weight in the beginning, but the weight often comes back.

Having social support can certainly have a positive impact on your weight loss journey, but to ensure long-term success, make sure that ultimately, you’re losing weight for yourself and your personal goals. Speak to our Lake Norman weight loss doctor for answers to these and many other questions!

Shannon and her team have been amazing to work with. I never feel like they are trying to “sell” me because their... programs speak for themselves. While losing my baby weight (40 lbs.) is a huge accomplishment, my biggest achievement was changing my eating lifestyle. I feel like I eat to live instead of the other way around and for that, I can’t thank the LKN team enough!read more
