Keeping weight off after losing it can be as hard as losing it in the first place. In fact, for many people, it’s harder, and people who go on a successful diet often end up weighing more than they did before they started their diet. Don’t let that happen to you. Here are some tips for keeping your weight off once you lose it.
It doesn’t have to be every day. It doesn’t have to be every week. But it does have to be according to some schedule that will tell you if you’ve changed something in your routine or if your body has changed something and you need to change your regimen in order to keep weight off.
Keep Getting Support
Getting support for your weight loss efforts is one of the most successful strategies for losing weight, and it can be one of the best ways to keep weight off, too. You don’t have to meet with a formal weight loss group or see a doctor regularly, but keep meeting with a running group or gym class. Maybe even just stay in touch with someone from your group, someone authorized to call you out if it looks like you might be putting weight on and who can inspire you as opposed to making you feel bad about it.
Dieting is the reason why many people who lose weight gain it back again. Dieting is a short-term weight loss solution, and it leads to short-term weight loss. If you really want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to make changes in your lifestyle that you see as long-term. You have to change yourself to a new way of living that results in a slimmer, healthier, and happier you.
To make those changes, you may initially begin with strategies designed to lose weight, but transition into a more maintenance-oriented program.
