You will not get and stay fit by accident; you deliberately plan to get and stay fit and healthy. It is easier to become fat, sloppy and unfit and thus predisposing yourself to serious health issues and ultimately death.
However, these following tips will help you to become and stay fit for a long time:
1-Believe that you have what it takes to become and stay fit
You have to believe in yourself to achieve the level of fitness that you dream of. Getting fit takes a lot of determination and discipline; you will feel like giving up along the way but, you have to overcome every form of discouragement along the way.
Create a strong mental picture of the better shape and look that you want to attain. Take a picture of yourself at the start of your fitness program and compare your body now to what you used to look like before you embarked on your fitness program as this will help you appreciate the progress that you have made and encourage you to forge ahead.
2-Set realistic goals
Have a clear picture of where you want to attain to; list the specific goals that you want to reach and write them down somewhere where you will be reminded constantly like your facebook page. Do not aim to achieve too much within the shortest possible time; you will only get discouraged easily.
From time to time, examine where you are with where you want to reach. Aim high, challenge yourself and remember that if you do not get to the Skye that you aim for, you might at least get to the stars.
3-Monitor your progress
It is very important to monitor your progress so that you do not lose focus.
You can mark all the days that you maintained your healthy and fat destroying diet on your calendar; you can also mark the days that you followed your exercise routine on your calendar.
Take pictures of yourself every month so that you can always compare how you look every month with your previous month’s shape.

So make up your mind to give it whatever it will take to make you stay fit and healthy.
