3 Must-Know Tips for Maintaining Weight Loss



As many of you know, I recently went on a weight loss journey and lost 35 pounds. Yay right? Well, I know the goal was to lose weight now the bigger goal is keeping it off. I’ve worked so hard to get to the point of where I’m at today. A lot of sacrifice and dedication. When I first started this journey. I thought losing weight was going to be a really hard process for me. I made up every excuse in the book from already being a good size to my metabolism slowing down. I quickly learned that anything is possible. Now that I have accomplished this goal. My next goal is maintaining my weight (unless I gain muscle in sexy areas) I wanted to share with you a few tips that I’m using to assist me with the next chapter in my weight loss journey. 

Accountability Partner

I have an accountability partner for shopping. Why not have one for my weightless journey. This person does not have to be in the same state as you. However, it does have to be someone that is going to answer your calls and/or respond to your text messages. You know those mornings when they bring hot Krispy Creme donuts in the office or you really don’t feel like going for your daily walk or working out. This person is one call away to let you know that you’ve come too far. Find someone that you can rely on. They don't currently have to be on a weight loss journey. They're there for support and encouragement. 

Support Group

Having a support group of people can really make this process a lot easier for you. Most likely your calorie count has increased which means this can become a slippery slope for some. There are so many support groups out there from Facebook to possibly one at your actual gym or library. Research and find one that would be most beneficial for your lifestyle. Which ever route you select is great as long as it fits your current lifestyle. Don't set yourself up for failure you know you know you're going to be unable to participate online or in person. Also, if you find that you want to try both options and figure out later which one works for you. That's awesome! The main goal is to use something that will work. 

Regimen/ Plan/ Consistency

I will not stress to you have important it is to have a regimen. On a weekly basis, I meal prep. I cut a watermelon and put them in my to-go bags so they are already on hand when needed. I have plastic utensils if I’m in a rush. I typically bake something once a week so I have a healthy breakfast or snack. I go to the grocery store once a week to stock up on my fav veggies/fruits and when I meal prep. I meal prep for all of my meals. I still use My Fitness Pal app to track my calories and steps. You’ve come thus far because of your consistency. There is no magic pill you can take. Because honestly, the weight will just come back on. All of those days that you had a healthy alternative would have gone to waste. Don’t take any breaks, don’t turn your cheat meals into your daily meals. Trust, me. I get it, however, consistency always wins the face. What works for me is planning ahead. What may work for you is creating your meals daily and that's the beauty of this journey. However, consistency is key.
