Yes: If you are not eating appropriately or exercising regularly, then there is always the chance that you could gain weight again. A healthy diet/exercise regimen is the best way to maintain a healthy weight. Best wishes.

Weight: Once you stop you can slowly regain the weight you have lost if you stop exercising
