How do you maintain weight loss on your own? This week the educational kit that is companion to the upcoming Weight of the Nation programming arrived.

Some quick stats from the kit that may interest and inspire you.

People who complete intensive weight-loss programs lose approximately 10% of their body weight.  Once they stop the program, most people tend to regain the weight they lost – about 1/3 within a year and almost all of it within 5 years.

The National Weight Control Registry has been tracking more than 5,000 people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for more than a year.  Of these registry participants:

  • 62% watch fewer than 10 hours of TV a week.
  • 78% weigh themselves at least once a week, many daily.
  • 78% eat breakfast every day.
  • 90% exercise about an hour a day, on average.
  • 98% continue to eat a healthier diet.
  • 100% say their quality of life is higher.

How many of these are true for you?  I figure at 5/6, you’re probably doing quite well.

Weight of the Nation is Premiering Monday May 14 on HBO,  you can find out more here.
