The question I have been asking myself lately is, “How do I maintain my weight loss?” Somewhere around 95% of people that have lose weight, gain it back. That’s insane. For myself, this is the best solution:
-Do not be sedentary- I know that when my husband is gone on trips is when I lose my most weight (or don’t gain it). It’s because I am the only one running after 3 young kids. There’s not time to sit down!
-Watch portion sizes- For some reason, I am always prone to eating more when my husband is home. I always tell him, “Fat and happy.”
-Remember how great it feels to have the weight off- It feels awesome to have people telling me how great I look. It feels even better to fit into great clothes without feeling like I am squeezing a sausage into them.
Whatever your reason may be to maintain your weight, know that you can do it no matter what the statistics say.
