Medical Weight Loss


Are you struggling to lose weight on your own? Have you tried different diets and exercise programs, but nothing seems to work? Do you have health problems related to your weight, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease? If so, you may benefit from medical weight loss, a comprehensive and personalized approach to weight management that involves the support and guidance of a healthcare professional.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is the process of losing weight with the help and guidance of a healthcare professional, typically a doctor. The doctor uses their knowledge and medical experience to help the individual attempting to lose weight to create a realistic plan that meets their unique circumstances.

Medical weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It takes into account your medical history, current health status, lifestyle habits, food preferences, and motivation level. It also involves regular monitoring and feedback from the doctor to ensure your safety and progress.

What is BMI?

BMI stands for body mass index, and it is a way to measure how much body fat you have based on your height and weight. 


BMI Categories:

  • Underweight: BMI less than 18.5
  • Normal weight: BMI between 18.5 and 24.9
  • Overweight: BMI between 25 and 29.9
  • Obesity: BMI of 30 or higher


While BMI is good to know and be mindful, BMI is not a perfect measure of body fatness or health. It does not take into account other factors, such as muscle mass, age, sex, ethnicity, and bone density. That’s why it is important to consult your healthcare provider to get a more comprehensive assessment of your health and well-being.

What can I expect during and after the program?

Medical weight loss is a collaborative process between you and your doctor. You will work together to design a plan that works for you and follow it with regular check-ups and adjustments.

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Athena at Get Up and Glo Medspa. She will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, measure your body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage, and order any necessary tests or screenings. She will also discuss your weight loss goals, expectations, challenges, and preferences with you.

Based on this information, she will create a customized medical weight loss program for you that may include any or all of the components mentioned above. She will explain the details of the program to you, including the duration, frequency, cost, benefits, risks, and expected results.

You will then start following the program with Athena’s support and guidance. You will meet with her regularly (usually every week or every other week) to monitor your progress, receive feedback, make adjustments if needed, address any concerns or questions, and celebrate your achievements.

You will also have access to other resources and services at Get Up and Glo Medspa that can enhance your medical weight loss experience, such as:

After you reach your goal weight or complete the program, Athena will help you transition to a maintenance phase where you will continue to follow a healthy lifestyle that supports your new weight. She will provide you with ongoing support and advice to help you prevent any weight regain or relapse.
