Can Keeping Weight Off Be This Easy?

By Rob Harris

You work hard to lose weight, you get plenty of exercise, join a gym and you change your diet. But then, once you’ve reached your desired weight, you might then begin to slowly put the weight back on and, before you know it, you’re back to where you started. You’re about to find out how to keep this weight off for the long term.

You may have fallen for a fad diet, without realising it, and these aren’t designed to work long term, so you might get the quick results that the diet promised, but then put the weight back on in the long term. The solution to this is to get on a diet that will work long term, with eating habits that you can keep up over time and therefore keep the weight off in the long term because you won’t slip back into old eating habits.

If you spoke to your doctor before you started going on the weight loss programme that you are on, then if you keep going back for checkups periodically, you will be accountable to someone and have someone to keep you on task with your weight loss efforts. This will help to ensure that you don’t slip into bad eating habits again and you will be able to get professional advice, about dieting, at the same time.

Weight yourself regularly, for example, once a week. Keeping a close eye on your weight will help you to keep it in check, and you will notice the changes as they happen. If you judge how much weight you’ve lost by how easily you can fit into your clothes, you might not notice a lot of difference in the gradual loss of the weight.

Consistency is the key, whether in dieting or in exercising. You need to keep at it; Rome wasn’t built in a day. You need to make sure that you are exercising regularly and sticking to your diet, if you break the consistency, you will not be able to keep the weight off.

Dr Andrew Brewster is a GP with a speciality in obesity. He says that most people make the mistake of getting on a new diet and then, once the person’s weight begins to stabilize, they think that it’s not working anymore. What’s actually happening is that the diet is working because it’s keeping you at the new weight. So, if you stop the new diet because you think it’s stopped working, you’ll put the weight back on.
