One aspect of the weight loss journey that cannot be overlooked is support. Support can look different for everyone depending on past experiences, motivation style, as well as lifestyle! Regardless of these differences, sharing a weight loss journey with others has been proven to yield better results and help individuals build relationships, share successful strategies, and work together through the inevitable roadblocks along the way.
Many of these support groups may be community, hospital, or university based and hold weekly meetings to allow members to discuss and support each other. One downfall of this model is finding a support group in your community that lines up with your schedule and needs! Thats why, at Noom, we believe the Group function of the app solves this problem and gives you access to support wherever you are. Let’s dive into the benefits of Noom’s virtual weight loss communities!
The Group Experience
Upon joining Noom, you will have two weeks to focus on getting to know your Goal Specialist, learn the app, and start setting goals! We believe it is important to give you this period of time so you can become comfortable with the app and are able to start developing confidence in your goals.
Once you meet your group, you will have 24/7 access to the members of your group and group coach. Your group coach (different than your goal specialist) will help facilitate community, support, and group challenges. This is a space for YOU and you are able to share as much or as little as you want. The Noom app allows you to easily share meals and exercise from your logs with the group and thread pictures of curriculum based activities.
The Easiest Way to Find a Weight Loss Program Near You
Why do we believe this group format is superior to geographically based groups? Because it allows you to connect with others on this journey, whenever and wherever you are! This group leads to real connections and friendships with others who are experiencing the same ups and downs of this journey! It also gives you a second layer of support from a coach who has YOU in mind!
