Some reports show that between 65 and 85% of people return to their previous weight after weight loss. How do you keep the weight off permanently?
I was listening to a podcast yesterday (Half Size Me) and something was said that I hadn't really considered before. Basically, the point was made that it is just as hard or harder for some people to maintain their weight after weight loss as it was to lose the weight in the first place. Great! I've gone to all the trouble of losing 75 pounds and you're telling me my journey isn't over? And that if I'm not just as careful, I may end up where I started? Well, yes.
So what are the secrets of the successful maintainers?
There you go! I'm learning from the successful maintainers, not just the losers. I've kept my weight off for over a year now and I don't intend to ever go back.
