I have lost weight before and then gained it back (80 and 50 lbs respectively). I am sure most all of you can relate. So this time I have been trying to develop the same habits as the folks listed in the National Weight Loss Registry. On average these folks have been maintaining their weight loss (range of weight lost is 30-300 lbs) for 5.5 years!!!!! WOW I like those numbers.
What do they do?
90% exercise 1 hour per day
75% weigh themselves at least once a week
62% watch fewer then 10 hours of TV a week
and a majority eat breakfast everyday (didn't write down the number as it is the one thing I already do)
I really don't want to do that yoyo thing and figure this is my best chance at success. I have bought a scale and have started weighing myself once a week. The others I am working on making into habits over time. What do people think? Have you already incorporated any of these habits into your life?
It all seems doable but daunting. Encouragement appreciated
