“Extreme Weight Loss”: This New Video Blog from the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center Challenges Viewers to Dig Deep to Find Personal Transformation Motivation

Share Article

Dr. Holly declares right at the start of this new video blog that she “loves” this episode of "Extreme Weight Loss" because it gets to the heart of what really matters in a weight loss transformation. She says that anyone who isn’t able to peel back the layers and discover the real reason they want to lose weight will find it nearly impossible to be successful.

If weight loss seekers don’t dig deep to find that deep private ‘why’, the transformation process just won’t work. No one can do it for you. You have to discover what motivates you through your own personal process.

On the latest edition of “Extreme Weight Loss," John was forced to complete his weight loss transformation on his own after being asked to leave the show. Like many weight loss seekers, John started out on his journey without digging deep enough to discover his internal motivation.

In this latest edition of her weekly video blog, the TV show’s medical director Holly Wyatt, MD, says she often sees the same lack of motivation and personal commitment in her clients at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado.

Every episode of the hit ABC series “Extreme Weight Loss” Season 5 begins at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center where Wyatt is associate director. She is affectionately known as “Dr. Holly” to the show’s cast members and her patients.

Dr. Holly’s weekly video blogs offer fans her insight about that week’s show plus advice on how to begin, or continue, their own weight loss transformation journeys.

This week, Dr. Holly declares right at the start that she “loves” this episode because it gets to the heart of what really matters in a weight loss transformation. She says that anyone who isn’t able to peel back the layers and discover the real reason they want to lose weight will find it nearly impossible to be successful.

“I can have clients who have access to all the best resources at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and I can text them every day and work on their mindset,” said Wyatt, “but, if they don’t dig deep to find that internal private ‘why’, the transformation process just won’t work. No one can do it for you. You have to figure it out and find what motivates you through your own personal discovery process.”

Watch Dr. Holly as she encourages us to get personal and dig deep to find our own private reason for transforming.

Dr. Holly’s advice:

  •     Peel back the layers of your “onion” to discover your real reason for transforming.
  •     Be willing to dig deep and expect that the process may be emotional.
  •     The “why” you uncover will keep you motivated long term.
  •     Devote this week to self-discovery. Think about how you want to feel, live and be after your successful transformation.
  •     Once you’ve discovered that personal, internal motivation write it down and share it with me on my Facebook page. Our online community is ready to support you in your weight loss transformation journey.

Dr. Holly’s participation in the TV show inspired her to create the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center’s first destination weight loss program. The weeklong Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp is designed to provide participants with the tools they need to complete their own successful weight loss transformations— without the TV cameras. Limited space is available in upcoming boot camps and weight loss seekers are encouraged to learn more and register now.
