Fat Loss - 4 Day to Day Actions to Maintain your Weight Loss

By: John Davenport

While many people manage to lose weight, only 5% manage to keep it off. One reason is that people choose diets which they can't keep for a long time, like no fat, or no carb diets. But there are other reasons, the main one is that once the excess weight is off, people tend to become slack in their diet, start eating whatever they want and end up gaining fat and pounds.

What can you do to make sure that you won't be part of the 95% of people who fail to maintain their weight loss?

Here are 4 day to day actions you can take:

1. Throw away your old clothes - Once you reach your desired weight loss, you need to throw away your old clothes. They will be too big for you now, and they are an unnecessary tie to your past. If you have them in your closet, it will be much easier to slide back into your previous weight and dress size. Throw them all away, or better yet, donate them.

2. Take old and new pictures - I want you to have a picture of the "old you" next to a picture of the "new you" standing side by side where you can see them every day. When you look at these pictures, I want you to be proud at how much you've lost and how well you look, and to be determined never to return to how you looked before you lost all that weight.

3. Watch less TV - I want you to cut down one TV show a day. Be frank, you don't even enjoy that show. TV stimulates hunger. What's more natural than snacking before the TV? Do something else with your time: read a book, take a walk, play with the kids, spend time with your spouse.

4. Make your diet plan a lifestyle choice - I'm not saying that you should keep on dieting forever, but come back to your diet plan from time to time, just so your body will not forget. It will help you keep focused and to maintain your weight loss.

If you follow these tips, you'll have an easier time at maintaining your weight loss.
