I Made it, Now What?

So I made it to goal, now what am I supposed to do? I’ve been in weight loss mode for so long that it’s weird to not be trying to lose weight. Confused smile

In the past, I thought of goal as the end result of a DIET. Now I know that this is a lifestyle change and I need to keep this pattern of eating going. Weight Watchers says I need to add points to my day – 6 more Points Plus! This is feeling extremely scary. Adding 6 points could be a very bad thing. One friend suggested only adding a couple points in at a time. That makes the most sense to me right now.

I know I ate more yesterday and today than I have in a while, and that does not feel good to me, physically or emotionally. I know now that my journey was not completed when I reached goal, it is a never-ending journey!

  1. Adding a few points each week to see what your weight does is a great suggestion. It gives you a chance to see what your body is doing and how it adjusts. And it allows you to try some new things.

    Congrats again. You deserve it!

    I think I said this on Twitter, but I’ll say it again: I’d think long and hard about seeing a nutritionist. Without mine, I don’t think I could have safely made the transition from diet to maintenance. Your body and your mind are at a key moment right now — you need to do everything you can to help them out.
