How to Maintain Your Recent Weight Loss

By Genevieve Cunningham

Losing weight is hard, so it’s really exciting when you make it happen. Whether you’ve recently dropped five pounds or 50 pounds, it’s definitely reason to celebrate. But unfortunately, the hard work isn’t done. Part of living a healthy lifestyle is not just losing weight, but keeping it off long-term! If you’ve recently lost a little weight and you’re determined to keep it off, take a look at these tips for helping you be successful.

Continue a Healthy Lifestyle

Just because you’ve lost weight, it definitely doesn’t mean that you can stop your healthy ways. In fact, it’s more important than ever to keep going! If you go back to your old habits, you’ll gain the weight back and possibly more. Stick to your well balanced diet. Stick to an exercise program. Stick to water over soda. The more you make your new health a part of your life, the more likely it will stick for the rest of your life.

Get Excited About Your Workout Again

Sometimes our workouts get stale. And when this happens, it can cause us to give less than our best at the gym. If you’re trying to keep the weight off, now is a good time to refocus on your exercise routine. Find something to get excited about again. Try something new, join a class, increase your weights. Do whatever it takes to get that newbie excitement back so that you can push through and keep your progress on track.

Step on the Scale

The scale isn’t everything. In fact, it’s possible that you stayed away from it during your journey. But it might be a good idea to step on it from time to time. The scale can give you a good idea of where you stand in the grand scheme of things. Have you held your new weight, or are you putting a few pounds back on? The scale can help you determine this, and then make the necessary adjustments to keep you progressing forward.

If you’ve lost weight, you obviously want to keep that weight off! It feels good to lose weight, and it feels even better to maintain it! It can be a hard task, but with some effort and knowledge, you can keep the weight off and your body moving toward better health.
