If you're worried about keeping off weight you've already lost, the web may be the place to go.

A new study conducted by the National Institutes of Health finds people who shed pounds and then consistently logged on to a specially designed internet site for weight maintenance were better able to maintain a significant portion of their weight loss than people who logged on less often.

Researchers say, in any weight loss or management program, consistency and accountability are important to success.
