For most of us we know what our portions should look like....Right?
We let them control us for sometime OR we wouldn't be down sizing them now.
Not to brag (but I will just a little) each day I get better at visualizing what a portion should be. Because I've given myself a long term goal of 50#'s in a year, I have NOT eliminated any foods. I still eat what I want, just not as often or not as much.............Tracking my food has really helped in this area.
Yesterday for lunch we went to "Philly Way".... yes I'm talking about a Philly cheese steak sandwich. This is what I did: ordered the sandwich minus the cheese, but added peppers and onions. When we got them home I added my own LF cheese (what's a Philly cheese steak w/o cheese?) I proceeded to eat 1/2 the sandwich, added some fruit and I was set for lunch. (drinking yet another glass of water)
Now whether you agree or not with my way of thinking, this is working for me. Portion control and sensible eating.
I've successfully taken off 1/2# a week, sometimes 1# and even a couple of weeks at a 2# loss. But I am learning day by day that portion control is going to be the key to my success. That of course along with at least 10 minutes of exercise (more 3X a week) and still drinking 8+ glasses of H2O a day.
It's falling into place and I'm pleased with the progress I've made so far. Plus I know I can continue this for a very long time.
So.......how is your portion control (exercise, water drinking) going?
to all who read this and have a healthy, happy week!
FYI: bought a jump rope and am going to attempt to jump more than 3 times without missing a jump...............this could take a very long time, but I'm going to try.

A while ago, after reading the article about pros and cons of daily weighing, I started as an experiment and still weighing in daily. I wanted to see a pattern in my weight loss. Nothing stood out until the past two weeks...... I discovered a prankster in my scale............you know the one who messes with your mind by manipulating the numbers inside the scale.
This past week and the week before I weighed my self every day
Monday: down, Tuesday: the same, Wednesday: up, Thursday: the same, Friday: the same, Saturday: the same, Sunday: down 1/2 lb. Yeah!
Monday: down 1 #...........................now what I'm trying to say is the varmint waits until the day AFTER my weigh in date to drop a whole pound.......I just know he is messing with me. But I will not let him get me down, after all a loss is a loss.........
Have a good day and please look out for pranksters in your scale.......don't let them get to you.
