So many people resolve at the beginning of the year to make fitness and a healthy lifestyle a part of their goals. Unfortunately, many of those people don’t keep it up.

Dr. John Foreyt, professor of medicine and director of the Behavioral Medicine Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine, offers some reminders on what you should be doing to maintain a healthy lifestyle:

•Sleep eight hours every night -- Most people need about 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night, and research shows that there is a relationship between lack of sleep and weight gain.

•Eat breakfast -- Research shows that skipping breakfast can contribute to weight problems.

•Pay close attention to what you eat -- Consider keeping a food diary and be sure to try to increase your fruit, vegetable, and fiber intake.

•Weigh yourself every day or at least once a week -- To lose weight, cut a few calories each day and aim to lose one pound per week.

•Get a move on -- Consult your doctor first, but start by walking about 10 minutes per day and then gradually increasing to 30 minutes a day for five days a week. If you’re already in good shape, try walking 30 minutes a day for more days in the week. Brisk walking contributes to a healthy body weight and significantly increases psychological well-being.

•Seek support -- Find a friend to exercise with, take a class, or join a walking club.

•Don’t give up -- Take it one day at a time and be patient. Maintaining a healthier lifestyle is a process, not an outcome.
