Health, wellness and weight loss are struggles for all of us, no matter the year or the circumstances. But this year? This year we all hit a sudden wall. The gyms closed, for a while it was extremely hard to find certain foods in stock at the grocery store, we started staying home nearly all the time and the stress of pandemic as a whole seriously messed with us.

Mental blocks are just as big as physical ones when it comes to health, and sometimes they’re unavoidable. It’s completely okay if you fell off your track this year. It makes sense. But now that we’ve all sort of found our new normal, many of us feel like it’s time to hop back on. But…how?

Many of us have found ourselves caught in the same cycle this year. We gain weight, and then we worry about losing it, but the stress of that weight loss actually often ends up completely hindering or reversing our progress. We start stress-eating and we lose the motivation to even try because the results are just not there. That’s why it’s best to focus on the mind before expecting to make any positive, long-term changes in the body, and that’s why Noom focuses on both!
