  1. You certainly know a little something about discipline with the weight loss. Now, it’s time to pump the brakes and shift into maintenance mode. If you’re patient and maintain your weight, instead of trying to push even harder, your body will achieve equilibrium and have a chance to adapt to its new shape.
  2. Try boosting your intake of water. This will help to cleanse organs like your lungs and heart and maintain their essential vitality. Plus, when you drink water and eat fruits and veggies rich in water, your skin stays hydrated and supple.
  3. Speaking of hydration, remember that moisturizers are your friends. Ideally, choose one that’s rich in collagen and vitamin E, since it will help your skin to grow skin cells and remain properly hydrated.
  4. If you’re going to the gym on a regular basis, try switching your routine to a weight resistance regimen. When you lose weight, you’ll naturally lose some muscle. Weight training will strengthen your muscles and help you to get a more toned look.
