Don’t Let Your Guard Down After Losing Weight

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ April 23, 2006

Okay, so you’ve been low-carbing for a while and gotten your weight under control. CONGRATULATIONS! Life is good once you’ve lost weight, but now the real challenge begins.

bq. Anyone who has been through this process will tell you that the most difficult part is not the weight loss itself but rather the mental test that begins once the weight loss has stopped.

While we often focus on the weight loss aspect of this lifelong journey, there are many more years of keeping that weight off to come that need just as much or even more attention than that initial shedding of body fat.

bq. Although I have triumphed over my obesity and have now kept it off for over two years doesn’t mean that I no longer have to worry about my weight. Don’t I wish! Actually, the mental strength to KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF is needed much more NOW than it was when I was losing weight. That may seem hard to believe, but most of us “losers” could attest to the challenges that come our way. I’m sure it will get a little easier over time, but don’t kid yourself into thinking after you reach your goal weight that you are home free.
