I recently had my annual physical examination, which I get once every seven years, and when the nurse weighed me, I was shocked to discover how much stronger the Earth’s gravitational pull has become since 1990.~Dave Barry
Once you lose weight and get a hot body, it’s time to start a simple weight maintenance plan to make sure you will get to enjoy your hot body forever. It isn’t something major or hard to do, but it beats having to lose weigh again. Weight maintenance is all about preventing weight gain and enjoying more health.
The most important part of weight maintenance is weighting yourself regularly. Once a week should be enough to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Fat tends to sneak up on you. If you aren’t careful soon enough you will have so much fat to deal with that another weight loss program must be followed. I bet you won’t be thrilled if this happens.
Keep a journal were you record your weight. Each week when you weight yourself jot down in the journal your weight. That way you can see if you are maintaining your weight, losing weight or gaining weight over time. If you are more computer savvy you can create an excel spreadsheet with your weight and each month you can make a graph with the evolution of your weight. That way you will have a visual representation of your weight evolution in time. Cool stuff to watch.
Besides weighting yourself weekly, you should also eat more healthy food. Going back to your old eating habits after the diet is over will make you gain all the lost weight right back. For weight maintenance you have to change your eating habits after a successful diet. Start eating lighter food and more natural food. Fruits and veggies should never miss form your table. They give you lots of minerals and vitamins and fill you up while at the same time containing few calories.
Exercising at least once a week is very important for weight maintenance. You have to keep your body and metabolism active. That way you will be able to keep the fat at bay, and melt any form of expansion your fat might try.
Weight maintenance isn’t as hard as losing weight, but it still involves some effort. Still the effort to keep the weight off is worth it. The health benefits are tremendous and you will turn heads wherever you will go. It is kind of infatuating to become the center of attention, and losing it isn’t pleasant at all.
