How about I really start to weigh and measure my food in take! Hmm who would think that would help? Ya, ya I know, I started on weight watchers I should know all about this. But like alot of people, I was good at it for the first few weeks and then started to slack on it and well now I just plain old don't even try. Not a good way to go.
Sure I eat healthier and more home made food but when you eat a cup and a half of green beans fancied up, when a serving of green beans is only..... Ha half a cup! Yeppers, I just looked it up to make sure (Canada's Food Guide). This is where I am going wrong, it might be good food I am shoveling into my mouth but not the correct amount.
So my goal for the rest of this week and from now on, is to watch my portions. How much I am really putting on my plate to eat. I have printed off the Canada Food Guide, some quick references and tips and have posted theses bad boys on my cupboard door. So there is no reason why I don't check now. I have dug the measuring cups and spoons out (not they were not used for cooking before). Now theses pretty little things will also be used for... my portions! And the food scale has been wiped clean of its dust and is ready to go.
Some how, some way... I am going to beat this blob of weight, one day it will happen!
