(HealthDay News) -- Maintaining weight loss can be more difficult than losing it in the first place.

The American Council on Exercise suggests how to help maintain weight loss:

  • Weigh yourself every week.
  • Move as much as possible, walking frequently, watching less TV and even fidgeting while you're seated.
  • Stock your kitchen with plenty of nutritious treats.
  • Place your gym bag near the door, and keep any home exercise equipment where you can frequently see it.
  • Make exercise part of your social life.
  • Measure your waist once monthly and make changes to your diet and exercise routine if your waistline starts growing.
