(HealthDay News) -- The weight-loss battle isn't over once you lose the extra pounds. The challenge becomes keeping it off.

The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions to help you maintain a healthy body weight:

  • Weigh yourself weekly, so weight gain doesn't creep up on you. Also measure your waistline.
  • Incorporate physical activity into your day as much as possible.
  • Keep healthy foods at home at eye level. Avoid being tempted by junk food.
  • Practice healthy stress management techniques, such as progressive relaxation.
  • Engage a buddy in your fitness program, making exercise a social affair.
