The real test of a slimmer's willpower starts when the exercise program and recommended nutrition for a diet are over and everyday life begins.

Losing a few pounds is relatively easy with most weight loss regimes, but maintaining weight loss and fitness levels not so much.2

Here are a few suggestions that can help you achieve both:

1. Set Achievable New Goals and Keep an Open Mind

Ban words like "can't do" from your vocabulary and replace them with a "can do" approach.

Just because you haven't done open water distance swimming or half marathons before doesn't mean you can't start now.

Keep an open mind and be ready to try out new types of exercise.

Setting realistic personal weight loss, body fat and fitness goals will bring the long-term results you want.

Take one achievable step after the other.

Never say never!

2. Find Activities You Love Doing

Don't force yourself to the gym, if you're enjoying dancing lessons, cross-country running in the woods or roller-skating more.2

If your first love has always been hiking, join a local hiking group and have fun doing regular exercise with great socializing thrown in.

Try out new fitness programs once in a while, perhaps creating a combination of the old and new: cross-country running and hiking or ball room dancing and aerobic exercise.

Setting new landmark goals for each every so often will spurn you on to new heights even if you have reached your target weight.

3. When Life Gets in the Way of Weight Loss, Simply Stick to Basics

Sometimes life events get in the way of best intentions.

We cannot foresee bereavement, redundancy or accidents.

At such times it is important to simply stick to the basics.

Continue with your healthy, vegetable-based nutrition and stop eating when you're satisfied, but not full.

Walk or do a little exercise every day that you enjoy doing.

It will be enough to keep your fitness levels healthy and maintain your weight loss, too.
