Oct. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- Having lost over 50% of her original body weight and, most importantly, kept the weight off for nearly a decade, Sally Symonds is an expert in what works for weight loss.

Sally’s inspiring new range of wellness coaching packages, which focus specifically on weight loss, will be launched at the Brisbane Fitness and Health Expo on October 15.

While most weight loss plans and programs follow the same basic guidelines (such as setting a goal weight, announcing your intentions to others, motivating yourself with extrinsic rewards and following a specific diet and exercise plan), Sally didn’t follow any of these rules when she lost weight.  Moreover, the effectiveness of many of these long-held rules are now being debunked by the latest psychological research.  Most people who have tried to use the reward system to assist them with their weight loss, for example, know that it doesn’t work.  Psychologists confirm this with studies revealing that extrinsic rewards now shown to diminish performance, crush creativity and problem-solving skills, encourage shortcuts, and foster short-term thinking.  Perhaps that helps explain why 96% of people who lose weight regain it all, and more, within two years.

Consistency is the key to weight loss success.  Most people know what to do to lose weight - eat better and exercise more - they just don’t know how to keep on doing it day in and day out. The key to consistency is motivation.  While everyone has different forces which drive them, there are actually two main motivators that are unique to almost every person and every situation:  autonomy and self-empowerment.  Sally’s wellness coaching packages harness these to help guide others to take control of their own weight loss journey themselves.  It’s moving beyond the concept of exercise and healthy eating compliance - or even adherence - and into the concepts of healthy living engagement, innovation and – most importantly – individualisation.  “I give people a crutch to help them learn to walk the healthy life path again.  But I don’t give them a wheelchair. I don’t leave people helpless when I’m not there any more.  It’s all about empowerment.”

Sally knows that effective strategies for weight loss are ones that need to work on a practical, physical and psychological level.  While healthy eating and exercise are the essential ingredients for weight loss, the missing ingredient is often what happens in our minds and there’s no one-size-fits-all quick fix for that.  “If we could all clearly see inside our own heads, then things would be a lot easier – but sometimes we can’t do this on our own.  Sometimes we need someone else to hold a mirror up to us. Sometimes we need someone else to help us get our head into gear so we can learn how to get our butt into gear.”

Sally’s wellness coaching packages all commence with an initial consultation, wellbeing assessment and include an extensive range of resources.  Participants chose from a variety of support options (face to face, online or phone) depending on what suits them best as an individual.  The “Your Pace or Mine” package also allows participants to design their own package according to their needs.

Sally’s wellness coaching packages can also include services such as supermarket solutions tours, exercise engagement sessions and daily motivational emails.

And Keep It Off and 50+ Recipes to Lose 50+kg . . . And Keep It Off across the weekend.
