You’ve reached your goal weight. Congratulations! But how do you keep the pounds off?
Remember that reaching your goal weight isn’t the end of your journey, and apply the same enthusiasm to maintaining your weight as you did to shedding the pounds. In addition to sticking to a regular exercise routine, here’s some simple tips to help you stay the course.
While you’re adjusting to your new body, routine activities such as shopping, dining, and socializing may spark anxiety. If you feel nervous about living life at a lower weight, remind yourself that you’ve made a major change for your health, and give yourself time to grow comfortable in your own skin.
It may seem counterintuitive, but try to eat more often when you’re maintaining your weight. Adding two small snacks to your three daily meals prevents you from becoming too hungry, then overeating as a result.
Choose when and what you’re going to eat during the day, and update your grocery list as you run out of healthy foods. Planning your meals beforehand will help you stay satisfied and resist junk food.
During your weight loss journey, you may have actively avoided certain patterns, places or foods that trigger overeating. Remember that you may indulge occasionally, but proactively seek alternatives to triggering situations that could sabotage your success.
