WEIGHT LOSS TIP:
Losing weight is one thing but achieving long term weight loss success is quite another. One of the big frustrations that many people have in trying to lose weight is being able to keep the weight off once they are actually able to lose weight. Unfortunately the way that your body works means that you can not just stop what you have been doing once you achieve your goal of losing weight because your body will quickly reverse back to where you had been before if you do stop.
This is known as the principle of reversibility which means in simpler terms that if you do not use it then you will lose it. In order to keep the gains that you make from an improved diet and exercise program you must continue to do the same things that you did in order to maintain your success. The good news is that once you achieve a certain level of success it is much easier to maintain that level and you can do more of a maintenance type program that is not as demanding. And once you have become accustomed to eating a healthier diet and exercising on a regular basis it is much easier to continue to practice these good habits that helped you to achieve weight loss success. But you must understand that you can not just stop once you reach your goal of losing weight otherwise you will regain weight and have to start all over again. Learn how to maintain your success once you achieve it and you will ultimately achieve long term weight loss success which is what everyone really wants.
