How to Maintain your Weight AFTER You Reach Goal

If your New Years’ resolution is to lose weight, then you may have started your new ‘diet’.  While your focus (right now) is shedding the excess kilos, have you really thought about how you will keep your weight off once you get to your goal?  To be perfectly blunt, losing weight is the easy part, keeping it off is much more difficult.  This week, we are going to look at ways to ensure your lost weight stays off for good.

The key to success is having a healthy diet (most of the time!)

Having a goal weight provides you focus and direction while you watch the scales gradually drop. However, once you reach your goal, you can feel a little unsure of what to do next.  Your motivation can evaporate pretty quickly, making it easy to fall back into old habits.  This is why it is important to set yourself goals during maintenance.  It may be that you want to participate in your first fun run or have a week where you drink no alcohol!  If you continue to set yourself regular targets – with your weight, nutrition and fitness – then you will find it easier to stay at your new weight.

If you lose your weight following a fad ‘diet’ – such as diet shakes, pre-packaged meals etc – then you will certainly struggle to maintain your loss.  Why?  Simply because you have chosen to lose your weight in a non-lifestyle friendly way!  If you reach your goal this way, you have no idea how to eat in order to keep your weight off.  This means you run the risk of eating the way that you ‘used’ prior to losing weight and you could be back at your start weight in no time.

Maintenance is easy if you join The Natural Way.  Why you may ask?  At The Natural Way, we understand that losing weight involves much more than drinking a shake or eating a pre-packaged meal;  it also requires increased activity and behavior modification or weight regain is inevitable.  Our clients are not on a ‘fad diet’, rather they are beginning a lifestyle change which promotes successful maintenance and good health WITHOUT compromising their metabolism or health.   Also, you will have access to our exclusive Healthy Living maintenance program.  This is full of important information in regard to your healthy new body:  while you are losing weight with us, you are being educated on how to keep it off.

If you are sick of ‘fad dieting’ and regaining all of your lost weight, you need to come and see The Natural Way to learn HOW to lose weight and keep it off.  Phone 1300 SLIMMER (1300 754663) TODAY to make a FREE appointment to find out more about our lifestyle-friendly program.  NO MORE YO-YO DIETING – The Natural Way is your answer to long term weight maintenance!
