Step 5: Don’t Relapse! Stop Weight Regain Before It’s Too Late

Welcome to Step 5 of the Maintain Weight Forever cycle. This section is about the hardest times on your weight maintenance journey: relapse and weight regain. No one plans on regaining the weight. It just creeps up on you gradually over time until one day you step on the scale and see your starting weight. It happened to me too. I saw 123lbs on the scale in 2011. By 2013, the scale said 223lbs. 23lbs heavier than when I’d started losing weight.

I don’t want you to regain like I did. By following the advice on this page, you can stop weight regain before it goes too far. A temporary relapse won’t hurt. It happens, especially during tough times like a death in the family. Tough times never last but weight regain can. Nip any relapse in the bud quickly. Start today. Not tomorrow. Waiting until tomorrow made me regain 100 pounds and 20 more on top.

Overeating and Binge Eating Recovery

A major cause of relapse and regain is overeating and binge eating. Too many calories come in and get stored in the body as fat. Getting fatter makes us feel worse, so we eat more food to cope. Eating more food means more weight gain. The cycle continues for hundreds of pounds until we’re back at square one. That’s why the best way to stop weight regain is by stopping overeating. That’s why this section focuses on issues you might have with food.
