Losing Weight Is Only The Beginning, The Trick Is Keeping It Off

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ September 18, 2007

Some people think the worst thing that could happen to you after you lose a significant amount of weight is to g-g-g-gain some or all of it back. While you wouldn’t want to put ALL of it back on (NOPE, not gonna be 400+ pounds ever again!), I do think it’s okay to be challenged by a 10-15 pound weight creep to see what your lifestyle change is made of and I talk about it in Episode 87 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.”

Although much of the focus when you are livin’ la vida low-carb is placed on the weight loss phase of the diet, I contend that is the relatively easy part of this amazing journey. The REAL work begins when you attempt to maintain that weight loss for the rest of your life. Think about it…you take a few months, a year, or even two years to lose weight. But then you’ve got decades left to live and KEEP that weight off forever. It’s much more daunting than people realize!

I’ve dealt with the struggles that we all face of seeing my weight climb back up again ever-so-slowly even when I’ve been faithful to my low-carb lifestyle. It’s an adjustment our body makes which causes us to adjust, too. Unless you recognize this is happening, then you may find yourself wearing tighter and tighter clothes wondering what the heck happened.
