Hi! Welcome to Peggy and Kelly’s Wednesday Diet Tips. I was talking to my friend Liz, who is a weight watchers instructor. “Sure, I’m losing weight now,” I said. “But how do I keep it off?” Maintenance is often elusive. Here are some of Liz’s personal tips:

Keep a journal. Record all food – if you bite it, write it! Be totally honest. I wasn’t aware of what & how much I was eating & keeping track helps me to keep my eating under control.

Figure out what triggers eating. I’m an emotional eater & so I had to figure out what triggered my eating response and come up with alternative ways of dealing with the emotion.

Third, the ‘E’ word. Exercise. When I don’t get enough, my weight always starts to creep up.
Great advice Liz! Thank you!
