At My Anti Aging MD, we can help you to finally lose those stubborn extra pounds with our medical weight loss programs in Arlington and Alexandria. Losing weight is easier than ever with our programs, but keeping it off is the real challenge. Research has shown that after just two years, many dieters end up weighing more than their original weight. Unlike other clinics that offer medical weight loss programs, we are not only dedicated to helping you to lose weight, we are also dedicated to helping you keep it, long after you’ve had your last HCG injection. That is why our team has come up with this list of proven strategies for keeping the weight off:
- Weigh yourself – Just because you’ve lost the weight doesn’t mean that you can start ignoring the scale. Weigh yourself every couple of weeks, so that you can make sure that those extra pounds aren’t sneaking back into your life.
- Keep track of your calories – Many people count calories while they are dieting, but then they give it up once they’ve lost the weight. If you don’t keep track, it is all too easy to slip back into old habits.
- Know what your red flags are – Red flags are those hard-to-break habits that have derailed your progress in the past. Whether your red flag is stopping by Starbucks every morning or grabbing fast food on busy days, you need to be aware of them, so that you can consciously make a decision not to give in.
- Make new goals – Once you’ve reached your weight loss goals, you are no longer working towards anything, so you give yourself a break. The best way to keep the weight off is by picking new goals to work towards! Whether your goal is to run a marathon, hike up a mountain or look great in a swimsuit –when you always have a goal, you always have a good reason to stay on track.
