I am now at 5 lbs total lost since January 18th which may seem agonizing, but for me,
This week's meeting topic was weighing and measuring your food - which I really enjoyed. I am in the habit of doing this right now - cups, spoons, 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup (ugh), teaspoon, etc... The food scale is a lifesaver! You really cannot eyeball a piece of grilled chicken or deli meat all the time - measuring is a wonderful tool because then you know FOR SURE. It helps you not over portion, but also helps you not UNDER portion. I want my Points-worth dammit!
If you portion at home, you can know better when you are at a restaurant or party what is a 3oz potato, steak, etc...or at least have an educated guess.
Good meeting, good topic. This is an important habit and one that really helps me stay on track.
