Los Angeles, CA – 12/17/2013—
Once a person hasachieved their goal weight, it’s time for celebration, but the road tolong-term weight loss requires daily commitment to several factors that canseem overwhelming. But with a littlebalance and know-how, achieving and maintaining weight-loss is an achievablegoal for everyone wishing to do so.
A study of over 5,000people who successfully lost 30 pounds or more revealed several consistenthabits in those who kept the weight off for over a year. They all consumed breakfast daily, maintaineda low-calorie, low-fat diet, watched less than 10 hours of television per week,exercised at least one hour per day, and weighed themselves consistently. Integrating these habits into anyone’slifestyle can help them achieve a goal weight and stay at that weight for yearsto come.
Tips to incorporatethose habits into daily living include moving as much as possible throughoutthe day. Shift in the desk chair at theoffice, walk across the floor to visit a colleague rather than calling. Reducing the amount of television watched byengaging in activity incorporate two of those habits at once. Another step a person can take is maintaininga healthy environment to encourage healthy eating habits. Stock the fridge and freezer with easy toreach nutritional snacks such as fruits and bite sized vegetables. Plan out meals to assist with groceryshopping, or buy smaller portions of snacks to keep from snackinguncontrollably.
Stress can sabotagehealthy habits quickly; therefore it’s important to learn ways to manage stressto prevent backsliding into old habits. Practice meditation or visualization techniques, or take a yoga class tolearn mindfulness and body awareness. This will also help maintain activity and engage a person socially, bothof which reduce stress and are part of healthy living.
If weighing once aweek is too much for a person, measure progress once a month to keep ontrack. Knowing where a person stands canhelp them alter their lifestyle to maintain what they have going, or change whatthey want to improve upon. In the comingmonths, try these steps or adapt these goals to create a healthier lifestylefor the coming New Year.
