3 Tips for Making Weight Loss Last
By Genevieve Cunningham
It feels so good to lose weight. If you’ve been on a weight loss journey, you already know how great it feels to step on the scale and see a significant change in that number. But while losing weight initially is incredibly difficult, the real challenge comes in keeping it off for good. If you’re interested in making your weight loss story a successful one, take a look at these tips for keeping the weight off of your body and the motivation up and running.
Have Go-To Breakfast Choices
If you really want to lose weight, you’ll want to start the day off right. The best way to do this is by having breakfast options already set aside and ready to go. Perhaps you have three healthy go-to breakfast choices … oatmeal, protein smoothie, egg whites and toast. When the morning rolls around, you can take your pick quickly without giving it too much thought. This helps get you moving in the right direction from the very beginning of the day.
Only Drink Water
Drinking water is, by far, one of the best choices you can make to both lose weight as well as improve your general health. If you’ve recently lost weight and you want to keep it off longer, you simply must choose to drink more water. Whenever you find yourself reaching for a loaded coffee or a soda of any kind, stop and replace your drink of choice with a healthy, refreshing ice cold water.
Incorporate Movement Into Life
While it would be great if everyone would pick up and stick with an exercise routine, this can be tough for many to keep up with. Simply adding more movement can do wonders. Add things such as more walking, stretching, and stair climbing into your life. While exercise should be included if you can find the time and motivation, adding normal everyday movement will work to burn more calories and encourage your weight loss to last longer.
Once you’ve finally lost a few pounds, it’s time to take the appropriate steps to make it stick! Keeping the weight off is key to feeling your best and improving your health. Use these simple tips to make your weight loss last and to keep the scale moving in the right direction for years to come.
