Weight Loss: Four Secrets To Maintain Your Lower Weight

May 30, 2008
Getting your weight down to the desired level is a daunting task, by itself. Once you have managed to do that, you are faced with an even greater challenge -- keeping your weight constant, at the reduced level. Although, this is easier said than done, in this article, I will share four proven ways to help make the task much easier for you.

Dietary Habits:

To insure that you lost weight, you had to change your dietary habits. You cut out high calorie intake, and found out how to imbibe sufficient nutrition without adding unwanted pounds. Your first challenge is to make these new diet habits your permanent assets.

Don't ever assume that having succeeded in losing weight once, you'll be able to do it easily again, allowing you, therefore, to go back to binge eating. In fact, your body would have undergone chemical and metabolic changes, during the first weight-loss effort. These changes will make subsequent weight-loss harder to achieve.

Conditioned Thought Pattern:

Before you can achieve anything, whatsoever, you should be able to draw a mental picture of it. If you want to continue to maintain your reduced weight, after you have achieved it, you need to think intensely about what you need to do for it. Once you begin to think 'thin', the task of maintaining your weight-loss becomes that much simpler.

Consequently, your eating habits will become healthier, and you will stay slim and trim. Your resolve to stay thin needs constant reaffirmation. Meditation is also a helpful tool. Once you condition your thought pattern to assist you in your effort, you will no longer be tempted by all the high-calorie food around you that once caused your mouth to water.

Working Out:

Devise a regular exercise regimen, if you want to achieve any degree of success in maintaining your weight at a lower level. Select an exercise program that suits you best, from the many existing options. But, if you plan to do rigorous workouts, make sure you consult your doctor before you embark.

Motivation Group:

You can do with some moral support to help you with your weight-loss program. You can achieve this by confiding in your close friends or family members about your plan. Make sure the person you tell has a positive outlook, and will push you on, from time to time. Once you reveal your plan to anyone, your pride will be at stake, and that will work to motivate you.

Once you find a way that guarantees you the most fun, weight-loss can be a joyful process. For instance, you should choose the exercise you most like doing, rather than a program someone else used. The same rule should apply when you select a low-calorie diet. It should have ingredients that you really like, rather than something you might imbibe as though it were medicine.

Absorb my four secrets and make them part of your lifestyle, and you will find that managing weight-loss is no longer as hard as you once thought it would be.
