The best tips and advice for life after weight loss. If you do not have a weight-loss goal, how do you maintain a healthy weight?
Be intentionally active after eating -- move quickly as you clean up after the meal, go outside for a brief walk, whatever you do, don't sit. 5 - 10 minutes after every meal really helps burn those calories.
If you've eliminated foods while losing because you fear you can't stop eating, reintroduce them in a safe place. If chocolate pie is your favorite nemesis, have a piece at a restaurant. It is unlikely you will order a second one!
Once after several years of maintenance I hit a hard patch and just gave up. I decided it was too hard. In no time I hit my all time high & it took a decade to get back to goal. Never give up. You don't have to be perfect to succeed, you just have to be determined. It is possible and you can do it!
I find that eating out at a Chinese/Japanese Restaurant makes it easier to stay on task with calorie counting, as Japanese sushi rolls and sashimi are very high in omega 3 fatty acids and very low in calories! Enjoy! edamame are high in protein and fiber and also low in calories (soy beans)
Lost over 25 pounds and have kept it off for over 2 years.
I work for them on a part time basis and it is encouraging for myself as well as others. Weight Watcher participants are allowed a certain amount of points, depending on weight.
After a day that you overindulged, hop on that scale. It may not be pretty, but it gives yoyu an idea of where you are. It is much easier to lose 2-3 pounds recently added than it is to evict 10. Ignorance is not bliss.
Hi..my best breakfast that I love the most is making oatmeal and putting honey on it. That is soo good.
Moving from weight loss to maintenance does not mean you are free to eat whatever you want whenever you want. It is helpful to have a "healthy lifestyle journey" mindset when losing weight so when you reach your goal you are ready to continue the lifestyle.
Reaching a goal weight doesn't mean the work is over. Weight loss is like using a treadmill. At maintainenace, the pace downshifts so it's easier to manage long term, but if we get complacent, we will lose ground, until we eventually fly off the back and land on our butts!
There are no huge mysteries to weight gain or loss. Everything comes down to calories ingested and calories burned. And Spark can help you solve any apparent mysteries, as long as you keep using the trackers faithfully.
