11/16/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Wednesday

OK, so I met with my consultant last night and I promised I would start putting up some tips I'm learning from maintenance.  Let me just tell you, I'm overwhelmed and I apologize in advance if my blogs seem confusing.  Things are a LOT different on maintenance than they were 3 years ago!  I used to pretty much just compare the calories/fat/sodium/sugar of a Jenny meal to a typical meal I was going to eat.  I think that's why I actually lost on maintenance last time because I usually had the same amount of calories as a Jenny meal but much less fat and sodium.  So previously I hit my goal weight of 125 and then dropped down to 113 for a bit and settled at 116/117.  Not too bad but it is clear my body is not like it was the last time.  I was a lot more strict before and my oonsultant had said absolutely NO cheese, hot dogs, ice cream, or bagels.  Well guess what...with the new maintenance model all of these things are possible!  I'm still skeptical but I'll try the new way and we'll see what happens to my weight.  I'm not going to overload you with new facts in just one blog.  Today we'll start simply by saying, the correct way to do maintenance is to up your calories (mine from 1200 to 1500) two days a week.  The plan is to do this for a month so it's gradual and my body doesn't gain weight.  Then work up to 1500 every day.  The 1200 is to lose weight and the 1500 is to maintain.  I was very honest with my consultant when I said I'm VERY uneasy about upping my calories.  I'll be honest with you when I admit I'm not sure I'm ready to pull the trigger on 1500 calories - even twice a week.  Losing weight every week is addicitng.  Can I really just stop?  Ugh.  More on this topic and what my planned 1500 caloric day looks like tomorrow...
