So now what?  I've met my goal weight - where do I go from here?  There's no doubt that in the back of my mind I worry, what if I gain it all back?  First of all, just because I reached my goal does not mean I have an excuse to go crazy now.  It's definitely a life-long commitment to remain healthy.  This means still watching my portions, sodium, sugar, calories, fat, exercise, etc.  This still entails a plan.  I will meet with my consultant and go back to regular foods slowly.  I would guess she'll have me try two days a week on my own.  I am much more comfortable with breakfast and lunch.  It's easy to find something for these entrees because I'm usually eating only one thing so the nutritional facts are all clear cut.  For example, eating a serving size of Fiber One Pancakes with a serving size of sugar-free syrup is easy to add the calories I'm putting into my body.  Lunch - also easy because if I eat a Cedarlane burrito it's basically just trying to match the nutritional facts of this to a lunch I'd eat from Jenny Craig.  What becomes more difficult is dinner because it usually consists of several ingredients.  This means if a serving size of chicken is high in sodium plus the marinara which is also high in sodium plus the pasta with sodium I feel as if I've already completely exceeded my sodium intake for that meal.  Ugh.  It's still difficult for me to wrap my head around.  Before the baby this wasn't as big of an issue if dinner's sodium was a little higher but my body still isn't "normal" and I'm not sure it can handle an increase in sodium for any of my meals.  I guess these next few weeks will be interesting to see how it all plays out.  Can you tell I have a little anxiety about going back on my own?...
