Here are a few things that you should think about when you are trying to maintain a healthy weight.

Low Calorie Eating

It’s likely that you will stuck to a diet plan when you were losing the weight, and you need to continue with this.

Breakfast is the Most Important…

Keep Active

Exercise will have formed the cornerstone of your weight loss achievements, but you should get into good habits and keep active throughout the week. Like your diet, this is best done by having a rigid plan in place and sticking to it as closely as you can. Build your exercise up over time as your body can become used to a certain routine, and always try new things to make sure you don’t get bored over time.

Monitor Your Weight

Make sure that weighing yourself on a regular basis becomes part of your routine, and keep a log of this. Small fluctuations are normal, but if you notice any major changes try to determine what the cause is and make adjustments to your routine accordingly.

Keep Setting Yourself Goals

For example, if you enjoy running, work towards achieving personal bests or increase the distance you are going. When you hit targets, there is a real sense of achievement that should encourage you to keep going.
