Syracuse (WSYR/ABC) -- Who among us hasn't tried to lose weight, and lost it, only to see it all creep back? But some people do lose a great amount of weight – and actually keep it off.

Researchers at Brown University studied 10,000 people who have lost weight and kept it off. Their data stretches back 10 years. These are not your average dieters - this is a study of success stories - people who succeeded in keeping the weight off.

At the start, the average participant weighed 224-pounds. They lost, on average, 69 pounds. Ten years later they managed, on average, to maintain a 51-pound weight loss.

They did it by changing their behavior towards food, but how? By counting every calorie and fat gram - writing everything down; By never skipping breakfast; They learned to eat similar foods every day - if something worked, they kept doing it; And, they stepped on a scale at least once a week.

Again, these were not your typical dieters. These are the amazing success stories. But they have something to teach anyone who's ever been on a diet.
