In brief: Most likely

If you do not resume abnormal eating habits then you should nutritional be ok but only after pre pregnancy counseling to maximize a healthy pregnancy.
Remember Folic Acid prior to pregnancy and prenatal vitamins are a good way to prepare for pregnancy. Bolemia can be a difficult problem to overcome be sure you are under good care.
