4 ways on how to keep weight off
When you have worked really hard and dedicated yourself to losing weight the next thing you have to do is make sure you keep it off.
Now this part is much easier than losing it in the first place but it’s so easy to slip back to the old routine and start putting weight back on.
So you need a plan for keeping the weight off, remember the hard work has already been done, so stay focused and don’t give up.
(1) Be Responsible
For you to lose weight and keep it off you have to take responsibility for what you eat; you can’t eat whatever you feel like eating, if you want to stay at the weight you are now.
Even if you stray a little bit each day, it will add up by the end of the week.
Weighing yourself on a regular basis is how to keep the weight off, and if you start putting on weight then you must take action to get it back down again.
If you can get it under control quickly then it’s going to be much easier to keep it off.
(2) Be Flexible With Your Thinking
The way that you think has a lot to do with keeping the weight off and the way you manage your weight, for instance you need to be flexible, don’t think that you are successful and don’t think of yourself as a failure, you’re just you.
If you over indulge one day, think ok I had a treat now let’s get back on track, and get back to eating healthily.
You will slowly accumulate good habits as you go, so you have to make these more permanent, you don’t want it to be hard work, and make it difficult to keep up for the long term.
If you didn’t use the right techniques in your diet then now is the time to change and start implementing a healthy lifestyle.
It should be easy to apply this mindset because you will be enjoying this new sensible way of life.
(3) Keep Up the Weight Training
Weight training is by far the best thing you can do to lose weight and keep it off, remember you need to carry on with the training, not only to lose the pounds but also to stop it coming back, though it doesn’t have to be as intense.
This will enable the body to keep a higher metabolic pace all day long, and it will be much easier to include carbs into the diet.
This is very important unless your diet is going to be carb free for the next few years.
(4) Put Fun into Fitness
Remember the work you put in at the gym or wherever you workout, well you can ease up a bit so look for things that you enjoy doing a bit more.
So keep up the good work and stay focused.
Stay on top of yourself and you’ll have no problem living in and enjoying your dream body.
