With 2024 in full swing, you may be fully committed to your New Year’s resolutions, or, like a lot of us, you may have lost a little bit of motivation. If you can relate to the latter, then don’t worry; there are many people in the same boat.
That’s why, in today’s blog, we’re looking into how ASC can help you stay focused and get in shape ready this year. We’ll explore the many weight management and fat loss treatments we offer at our clinics, as well as our top tips and tricks for staying on track to achieve your goals.
If you need an extra push to reach your goal weight or get that dream definition, then we’re here for you.
Why is It Difficult to Stay Motivated?
Maintaining motivation for New Year’s resolutions, especially getting in shape, presents a challenge for many. Initial enthusiasm wanes as daily distractions and competing priorities arise. Also, setting unrealistic expectations often leads to disillusionment and a sense of failure. As your progress plateaus, the positive feedback loop weakens, diminishing your drive to continue. Instead, focus on attainable goals and regular adjustments based on visible results. Complementing this approach, implement an effective support network such as friends and family to enhance motivation and propel you towards your desired outcome.
Planning Ahead and Sticking To It
If you’ve not managed to stick to a routine yet, or you’re finding getting started on your weight loss or muscle definition journey difficult, you need to take a few steps back. Although it might seem counterproductive, if you’re not seeing results or you’re struggling to stay focused, stop what you’re doing and create a detailed plan.
We recommend noting down your current weight and measurements and which numbers you would like to see decreasing. The next step is to decide how you’re going to achieve this. Do you need to work on your diet? Is exercising your priority? What about a non-surgical fat removal treatment? Whatever you decide, it’s much better to begin planning now rather than just diving in with no plan, so you have a clear idea of what you want and how you’re going to get there.
It’s also important to note that it’s not all about decreasing (or increasing) numbers. Getting in shape is also about how you feel in yourself, your body confidence, and your health. So, also consider making a note of these types of goals, too, so you can keep track of your mood and overall health.
Diet and Exercise
These are the two words many of us dread to hear, but they’re unavoidable when it comes to getting in shape. Disciplined nutrition, balanced with proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, fuels your body and supports metabolic function. On the contrary, excess or nutrient-poor food leads to weight gain and sluggishness, so it’s crucial to establish your body goals and adjust your diet accordingly.
Alongside this, regular exercise maximises your calorie burn and strengthens the body. Cardiovascular activity promotes heart health, while strength training enhances muscle tone and boosts metabolism. A blend of both makes a robust fitness programme, so be sure to create a workout programme that works for you. Remember, consistent commitment to both pillars will empower you to achieve and even surpass your initial 2024 fitness aspirations.
But, as mentioned, whether you choose to hire a personal trainer and nutritionist or create a rough guide yourself, having a plan in place for what you eat and how you workout is guaranteed to help you get in shape.
Should You Consider Weight Management Treatments?
If you have specific problem areas that you’ve tried to tackle through diet and exercise in the past, you could consider medical weight management treatments. They are great for those wanting to target specific areas of their body quickly and without the downtime of weight loss surgery. For almost instant results, a professional and discreet experience, and an incredible range of award-winning medical professionals, choose Aesthetic Skin Clinic for your fat loss treatments and muscle defining procedures. Let’s take a look at what we can offer you.
Aqualyx Fat Removal
Previously, fat removal treatments were limited to surgical procedures, but with new and innovative technologies and methods, we can now offer a range of non-surgical treatments here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic. Aqualyx Fat Removal is available in our Jersey and Guernsey clinics and is an injection treatment designed to target unwanted fat in problem areas.
A fat-dissolving solution is injected via a cannula and spread out evenly, breaking down stubborn fat and allowing your body to flush it out naturally. Typically, you will require 3-5 sessions to achieve your goals, but we will create a bespoke plan for you during your consultation to help you better understand how your treatment will line up with your goals.
Our Fat Freezing treatments in Jersey and Guernsey work by cooling unwanted fat cells to trigger cell death. Those wanting to appear more contoured and muscle-defined favour this treatment as it works better for those who are not overweight and just wish to remove smaller areas of fat, such as on the tummy or inner thighs.
It’s important to note that our fat removal treatments are only as good as the maintenance, so you must continue to live a healthy lifestyle to keep up their results.
InShape is an innovative Electro Magnetic Stimulation (EMS) treatment designed for body sculpting. Working through electromagnetic field-induced muscular contractions, InShape is equivalent to performing intensive exercises like 20,000-30,000 squats or sit-ups. It’s a pain-free, non-invasive treatment that gives fast, measurable results – boosting muscle mass by 16% and reducing fat by 21%. Ideal for those aiming for defined muscles in 2024, InShape targets specific muscles, inducing microscopic tears that stimulate muscle growth. It also triggers fat burning for a leaner, more toned end result. All of this is achievable within a time-efficient 30-minute try-out session!
How Aesthetic Skin Clinic Can Help You Achieve Your Goals
Our non-surgical fat removal treatments are a fantastic choice for those wanting to say goodbye to their unwanted fat without any incisions or downtime. Perfect for targeting specific areas of stubborn fat that are difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone.
Aesthetic Skin Clinic’s team of experienced medical professionals will talk you through the process, from your discreet consultation all the way through to your aftercare, and will do everything they can do to make you feel comfortable and at ease about your treatment.
