My friend and physical therapist, Alan Tyson, gave me this excellent article. It is right on the money.Weight loss always seems to be at the forefront of goals for the new year and there is ample talk about ways to take off those excess pounds. But keeping it off is the real prize. While many have success for a while with their weight loss plan, often, over time, the pounds creep back. The real question isn’t really an annual one…it is a forever question… How do we keep the weight off — today, tomorrow, and for the rest of our life? Not even everyone with “lucky genes” can stay slim for a lifetime without the help of a few basic strategies. I trust Alan’s judgment because he works with elite athletes and with weekend warriors alike, and his focus is prevention through strength and nutrition. Let me know what you think of the article, and check in later this week for a look at someone who lost 20 pounds a few years ago, and has kept it off. I will talk to her about what she feels is the “secret” to her success.
