Healthy But High!

By WLR Staff, by Pat Wilson

My portion sizes have been too big I weighed my cereal, and I have been almost eating double, ahhhhhhhhh, so now I am weighing everything. Pray this works and I start losing weight.

Sounds like you have the right idea now, weighing things is new to me too, used to guess and was eating too much, I am hoping it will help me this week.

I made the same mistake with brekkie. I now eat mine from a very small Chinese rice bowl which takes just the right amount and does not make it look like a teaspoonful in the bottom of a normal bowl. Oh, I'm so easily fooled!

I weigh everything as well, I even cook the same meals as my husband but cook them in separate saucepans then I know I am only eating my allowance and not cheating with the bigger half. Pain is doing the washing up though, never mind get my dish washer in 3 weeks so can't wait Cath

Of course it will. You've taken an enormous step today in identifying that your portion control was a little out of shape too. Now all you need is a few deep breaths, don't think ahead to fine and everything will come up smelling of roses. You can do it.

Six weeks in and Mr Beebarf and myself weigh absolutely everything as it's the only way to keep control. Our cereal bowls especially are huge and it would be easy to eat half our calorie allowance for breakfast! I'm sure that you'll notice the difference. At least you've already got the healthy eating idea with the things you eat, now you just get those portion sizes sorted - and you will! ;o)
