So many women lose weight only to see it come right back a few weeks or months later. The fact is the even though so many people are able to lose weight only a few are able to actually keep it off and move on to the next goal. Becoming complacent once you have lost weight only allows you to slip back into old ways.
Hearing people say you look great and letting it go to your head usually allows time for you to slip on your diet and going back to doing things that you stopped to lose the weight. Here are some tips to make sure you keep the pounds off that you have already lost.
“Holding on to your old clothing could be another reason for your weight loss and gain cycle. Having clothes that fit what you use to weigh allows you to slide back into them without notice until it is too late. Get rid of them and buy nice new clothes that fit the new you!”
Watch Less Television
Stop watching so much television and go do something with that time. Try cutting down a hour of television and go walking or to the beach. The problem is that many people eat while they are watching tv even if they are not hungry. Between all the food commercials and being so close to your own refrigerator it is easy to want something to snack on. Go read a book, play with your kids or spend time with your husband or boyfriend.
Throw away old clothing
I deal with this with my wife all the time and frankly it’s a battle so I know how women must feel about old clothes. The problem is that you have reached a goal for weight loss and need to put the past behind you. Allowing yourself to keep the clothes in your closet allows you to slip back to your old weight without even noticing it. You will simply just go in a grab something and before you know it you are back at your previous weight. Get rid of them and buy new ones that fit your current size.
Take a lot of Pictures
Make sure you take pictures of how you look at the weight you never want to be again. Then as you start to lose weight take pictures of how you are now. When you start comparing the old you to the new you it will make you see how far you have come and will give you more confidence and motivation to continue one. You will be driven to never go back to the way you were before you lost all the weight.
It’s Not a Diet It’s A Lifestyle Change
The problem with most weight gain after weight loss has occurred is that people stop the diet that they are on. I you choose a weight loss diet or program make sure it is something you can continue. Don’t look at it as a diet but rather a lifestyle, because with diets once you are done you go back to eating the way you were before and the weight comes back. This is why I like “Eat Stop Eat” by Brad Pilon. It allows you to enjoy foods and keep weight off and its very simple to make into a lifestyle.
NOTE: If you follow these tips I will guarantee that you will keep the weight off. Give “Eat Stop Eat” a try as it allows you to currently eat what you are eating without any changes in the foods you buy. You simply make simple adjustments to your meal times.
