NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - With the holidays now in the rear-view mirror, many are wondering how to live up to their New Year's resolutions made as the calendar flipped over to 2018.

The prospect of following through with weight loss goals may seem daunting and unattainable at first. But, for those who are dedicated and ready to work hard, Kavita Kewalramani, MD, MPH of K Primary Care & Medical Nutrition Center says everything is possible.

Here are some tips from "Dr. K." to help one succeed:

Start off small:

To start off make small resolutions that you are more likely to keep. For example, if you want to be more active do not vow that you will wake up at 6 a.m. every morning to go for a morning jog. It is much more realistic to say that you will work out 2-3 times a week and then build it up to 5-6 times a week.

Change one behavior at a time:

Again, start small. For instance, if you like to eat a bedtime snack, try to avoid doing that by reading or meditating at night. Try not to overwhelm yourself by making too many changes all at once.

Talk about it:

Share your stories and frustrations as you experience them. Whether this means confiding in a close friend, writing in a journal, or joining weight loss programs which include group discussions, sharing your experiences and listening to others will help in your weight loss journey.

Be realistic:

Weight loss and lifestyle change will present many obstacles and challenges, so be prepared. There may be times where you will doubt yourself or your abilities. We encourage you have a positive attitude and fully commit to your success.

Ask for help:

Accepting help from those who care about you strengthens your resilience and ability to manage stress. If you feel overwhelmed, please do not hesitate to reach out to our professional medical staff or consider joining our programs.

K Primary Care & Medical Nutrition Center wants everyone to achieve their weight loss goals and notes, that with the right support and a committed attitude, nothing can stand in the way of success in achieving those goals.

For more information on how their programs can help, contact 908-206-4676. K Primary Care & Medical Nutrition Center is located at 571 Central Avenue in New Providence.
