It is a new year, and that means it's time for a new you! Most people make their midnight toast on New Year's Eve with a resolution in mind. For some people it's about better household budgeting, for others it's quitting smoking, and for even more, it's losing the weight they may have put on over the past year.  Everyone faces their own personal challenges, and January is the perfect time to begin making changes to overcome them. 

Some people's challenges are more daunting than others, and it can be disappointing when we abandon our resolutions after only a few weeks. No matter what you have resolved to do this year, it is always best to approach it with a well-structured and well-thought-out plan made up of a series of smaller achievable goals.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”- Lao Tzu

Any problem can look insurmountable as a whole, but when broken down into small and manageable steps, you are much more likely to be successful and feel a sense of encouragement and accomplishment as you progress. That is the approach we take in the HMR® Program.

If you have resolved to get healthier or lose some weight this year, contact the weight loss experts at the Atlanta Endocrine Associates. You can develop a personalized plan that fits into your busy life and still benefit from the accountability and structure needed to keep you on track.

Is Your Allergy Medication Making You Gain Weight?

When histamine receptors are blocked by an antihistamine medication, the brain doesn’t receive the “I’m full” signal like it normally would. The body also can’t burn calories effectively when the histamine receptor is blocked, lowering metabolism.
