I decided to stick to the 1200 calories to see if I can eat "normal" food first without gaining before I jump into 1500 calories.  But, as of now, unless I did the balanced diet plan wrong; I gained weight from yesterday.  It's just a pound, but it makes me wonder if it was still too much sodium for me.  The  Shrimp Pasta was absolutely horrible so I put Dijon Mustard in it to give it some more flavor...still awful.  But, just one teaspoon is 120mg of sodium.  Again, with my wacky body this kind of stuff makes a huge differenc.e  Cheese and I never did well together either - and I had a cheese stick for one of my "meats" so maybe that was a factor?.  Who knows?.  I was excited about eating real foods until I saw the scale this morning.  I'm going to do a little kickboxing to see if that helps change it for tomorrow.  I will try another day on my own Sunday depending on what the scale says the next few days.  I'm trying to do 5 starches, a ton of veggies, 2 fruits, 2 cups of milk, and 6 meats (equivalent of 6 oz. of meat) throughout the day.  Most breakfast meals have 2, lunches usually have 1, and dinners can have 2-3 starches so that leaves your snack at the end of the day which is a starch as well.  I am constantly looking in this book Jenny gave me which shows how much per oz, cup, etc. is equivalent to a starch, meat, and/or milk.  For example, 1/2 cup of pasta is 1 starch.  My cup of oatmeal was 2 starches.  That only leaves 3 for the rest of the day just after breakfast.  I HATE meat so I'm going to have to rely heavily on fish, cheese, lentils, and eggs for my protein.  I'll have to ask my consultant what is equivalent to the veggie meats (does it count as a protein)?.  She won't be happy that I'm only doing 1200 calories but after the weight gain I am lacking the confidence to even eat a 1200 caloric day on my own.  Undecided Remember, I'm only doing 2 days a week on my own so today I've opted to do a Jenny day.
