Asked by a visitor: I have lost a 100 pounds and hit my goal weight. I really want to maintain this current weight, what do I do?
Our bariatric dietitian answers:
Congratulations on hitting your goal weight! Now, the real work comes in. . . . maintaining that weight loss. This is where lifestyle changes really make the difference. As you begin to settle into your new life and new weight, remember it is those daily choices of eating the right foods and staying active that have the most impact on weight.
If you begin to notice weight gain, take a look at old or new habits that may be creeping in to your life. What can you do to turn those actions around? We all fluctuate a few pounds and that’s completely normal but just be aware of those lifestyle habits that help your success and those lifestyle habits that tend to hinder your success.
