If you’re reading this, you deserve a big congratulations. You made it through 2020, a year that was…challenging, to say the least. And if you’re anything like us, you probably deserve some dedicated self-care too. Maybe your yoga routine fell by the wayside when you became your kids’ substitute teacher. Maybe comfort food was on the menu after a day of endless video calls in your makeshift closet turned office. Or maybe you had to give up your daily runs with your best friend, the one person who really challenges you to be your best. And there’s no shame in any of that; after all, living a balanced, healthy life can be hard enough in a normal year…one without a global pandemic.
Noom is a weight loss program that combines the power of technology with the empathy of real human coaches to help you achieve your long-term wellness goals. When you log in to Noom, your own personal specialist guides you along your journey to a new you. That means that you’re not alone in facing down your wellness resolutions in 2021.
As our lives begin to return to normal, there’s no guarantee that our old healthy habits will make a comeback or that we’ll be able to forge the new habits we resolved to achieve last year, before we’d ever heard the phrase “quarantine 15.”
Just think back to last year. According to a You.gov poll, the most popular resolutions for 2020 included exercising more (50%), eating more healthily (43%) and losing weight (37%). And last year, like every other year, diet books flew off the shelves around New Year’s…only to collect dust within a few months. That doesn’t mean the books were bad. Restrictive diets just aren’t a long-term solution for achieving a healthy, sustainable body weight. As we learned in 2020, going carb-free doesn’t help you deal with negative thinking or stress eating — the things that can hold you back in the long run.
For real, lasting change, you need to learn how to identify the habits that are holding you back — and how to change them. With Noom, you’ll answer a series of questions about your health, behavior and lifestyle that will help you set achievable, lasting goals, whether that’s losing weight or getting fit. Then you’ll receive coaching from professionals trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Already exercising? Noom can fit in with your routine and syncs with all major fitness trackers. Coaches will help you with weekly, individual goal-setting tailored to your journey and lifestyle. Not sure where you want to end up? Noom’s coaches will be happy to give you some ideas — and the inspo you need to get there.
So this new year, forget the fad diet and go for Noom’s two-week trial instead. If you find you like it (and you will), pricing starts at just $59 per month or $99 for two months. No need to wait for the new year to make some new resolutions. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of self-care, support and success. Give yourself Noom.
