If losing weight seems hard, that’s because it is: it requires consistent effort, a lifestyle change, and literal sweat (and sometimes blood and tears) to reach your goals. But if you thought losing the weight in the first place was the hard part, you were mistaken. The real work is in keeping the weight off long-term.
These six women prove that maintaining weight loss requires just as much (if not more) effort than getting the weight off in the first place. They also defied the odds since many people regain the weight they lost. Here is how these women, who all lost 75 pounds or more, kept off their weight and adopted healthier habits for a lifetime. Get inspired to not only lose weight, but keep it off for good.
