Secrets of Success

Start Thinking About Maintenance While Losing



Don't leave weight maintenance as an afterthought! Start researching and planning for weight maintenance before or while losing weight. Approximately how many calories will you need while maintaining? What kind of exercise plan will you do? How will you manage cravings? Having a plan well ahead of time will make us better prepared for setbacks we may encounter once the enthusiasm of weight loss wears off.

  • Your comments on Weight Maintenance are spot on. Your message perked me up and I'm not even close to my weight goal yet, but already planning ahead for what will be required in the near future. Thanks! emoticon - by MSROZZIE
    I've given this some thought, too. Maintenance is at least four to six months away but I know from the past that losing weight is hard, but keeping it off is harder....... - by LITTLEBO
  • Here here, CatsMeow. This has what I've NOT done in past weight loss experiences. It's not just about losing the weight, it's also about maintenance.

    My weight has slowly crept back on the multiple times I've lost weight. Good reminder! This is the focus of the Beck Diet Solution. - by TZUZEN
