Roasted turkey background, wording says "Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics: Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup"

Thanksgiving carries different symbols for many Americans -- family, history, and gratitude among them.

One of the most time-honored -- and loveliest -- traditions of Thanksgiving also includes cooking and gathering around the table for an overflowing feast.

Because of this, some Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics patients sometimes approach the Thanksgiving holiday with a mix of emotions -- excitement, anxiety and even fear of the unknown.

We're here to help.

We've rounded up our favorite healthy and delicious Thanksgiving recipes for you below.  They'll help you celebrate Thanksgiving Day while still feeling in control and completely nourished.

The Power of 'I deserve'

One of the biggest changes our patients notice during their journey with Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics is a mindset shift. Even while patients’ bodies are changing, often their biggest change is internal – in patients’ perception of themselves.

Resting Heart Rate

We've talked about goal-setting and how important it is to choose the right goals for your health and/or weight loss journey. We wanted to share an example that hits home for many patients, improving your resting heart rate.

Are you setting the RIGHT goals?

Choosing the right goal is not only helpful in terms of knowing what direction you’re headed and how to get there. Your goal is also a critical component of whether you’ll stick with a new habit or lose motivation altogether.
