How to Know if Mounjaro is Right for You

Before starting any weight loss treatment, it’s crucial to assess if it aligns with your health goals and needs. As with any medication you’ll need to be assessed to make sure that this medication will work well for you. You can check your eligibility with Crest Pharmacy. Simply request a consultation call back online to get started.

Mounjaro, containing tirzepatide, operates by regulating blood sugar levels, reducing appetite, and curbing cravings. This mechanism, coupled with healthy lifestyle adjustments, can facilitate sustained weight loss. This means that for the best results, alongside taking weight loss medication, you get the best results by combining it with healthy exercise and diet.

While this can feel daunting, simple lifestyle changes can all add up and help you succeed when you’re taking Mounjaro.
If you’re not a fan of exercising in a gym, there are plenty of other ways to stay fit and healthy. There are countless at home work outs on YouTube to try and going for a walk is a free option that can burn a surprising number of calories. Before starting any dramatic exercise regimes always consult with your GP first.

If you’re confident you can make the change to healthier eating and adding in more movement to your lifestyle, Mounjaro could be the right weight loss medication for you.

How to Take Mounjaro

The injection itself is easy to do and during your consultation at Crest Pharmacy, our experts will guide you through the proper technique and offer support to make sure you’re comfortable with taking the medication.

What Results to Expect With Mounjaro

A common question we get asked by patients looking to start taking Mounjaro is: what results can I expect?

While the results can vary between person to person, some typical results have shown that within one year of starting treatment, 42.3% of those taking tirzepatide – the active ingredient in Mounjaro – had lost at least 15% of their weight*.

For example, if you’re starting to take Mounjaro at 110kg you could lose up to 16.5kg within one year of starting treatment.

However, as with all weight loss medications, the results you get are massively influenced by you as an individual and the lifestyle changes you make. That’s why we recommend attending support groups and fitness classes to help you achieve your goals and keep you on track.

How to Find Weight Loss Support Groups Near Me

Community can make all the difference when it comes to losing weight. Going it alone can feel isolating and make you more likely to feel frustrated and not make the healthy choices you need to succeed.

There are groups everywhere for those looking for support and to make friendships while they lose weight and discover exercise for the first time. There are a few places you can go to find local weight loss groups near you:

  • Local Gyms: There are often workout groups and fitness classes available at private and local council owned gyms. These are ideal for people just starting to get into exercise that want a bit more support. Plus, they’re great fun and you might find your new favourite exercise.
  • Your GP: In many cases there are local healthy eating and exercise groups available as a referral through your GP. Make an appointment to discuss your weight loss with your GP, there are often support groups provided by the local authority or the NHS directly.
  • Facebook: There may be local clubs and exercise groups in your local area that you can join and find on Facebook. Exercise caution with any health advice directly in these groups as advice provided here might not be right for you.
  • MeetUp: Similarly to Facebook this is an online service where you can find different exercise groups local to you.
