What are some ways that I can maintain my fitness after working hard to get in shape or lose weight?

Importance of Behavior Modification

Research shows that many women who lose a significant amount of weight in a very short period of time will gain the weigth back. One of the hallmarks of women who have successfully lost weight and kept it off is that they actually changed they way they acted and reacted. Women who are successful at losing weight or reaching any fitness goal have used the process of losing weight or getting in shape not as a means to an end, but as an opportunity to change they way they think about food and exercise and have learned to substitute more appropriate activities for eating. Women who modify their behavior for the long term are more likely to remain in good shape after an intense period of diet and weight loss is over.

This is saying that you should change your personality just so that you can look better. I disagree with this. As long as you are healthy that is all that matters. Don't change who you are just to lose a few pounds!
