Yep, I know that you grammar freaks just love that word.... GOALiversary! hah!
You do know that there's a Facebook page that you can join called "I correct your bad grammar in my head while you're speaking". Just saying...
Well, today is exactly 3 months since I reached my goal weight of 145 lbs. Since then I have maintained my goal weight.
In regards to food choices, I am pretty much doing exactly what I have been doing all along in my weight loss phase with the addition of about 200 calories per day...that's it.
Therefore, I highly recommend that you choose a lifestyle of food choices that you can live with for the rest of your life...yeah, that means F.O.R.E.V.E.R. That's why I very rarely use protein shakes/bars/meal replacements. Because for me, that's not a lifestyle I personally can stick with. Sure they come in handy when I'm really busy or travelling, but not my preferred way of eating.
I eat real food, just smaller portions (using a food scale, measuring cups, etc)
By real food, I mean: lean meats, dairy, veggies, and fruits.
Good food choices of real food exists exists pretty much most places (notice I didn't say ALL places).
For example, the other day, I met up with friends for lunch at a local pizza place. Everyone else ordered subs, calzones, and pizzas. I had a half a Chicken Caesar Salad with the dressing on the side. Good food choices exist, we just have to look past the poor choices. If we had ordered a few pizzas to share, I would have eaten one piece and mainly only the toppings.
I always have a choice.
I am far from perfect. Sometimes the poor food choices creep into my life (recent example: Girl Scout cookies!). But I am conscious of it and not on automatic pilot.
