This being day 13, tonight I moved up to stage 2. Abi and I have been using measuring cups anyway the last couple of days. We are being more careful about portion control.
I DID splurge a bit tonight. Genya'd given me a burger patty and bun (I think it may have been a meat-FLAVORED patty) and so I heated it and prepared it with K,M, R, &O. MMM. But it only put me a LITTLE over my max (like 17 calories!) and I've been fairly successful at keeping my intake on the lower side. While my weight showed a slight increase this morning, I'm not discouraged - my measurements actually showed a decrease. When I walked to school I tried to put a little more OOMPH in my step, breathing with concentration. I don't know my speed - I entered it as a 30 min mile. I hope it will be better with time. I'm encouraged with the use of SP and trust that I will indeed see a change in habits, to become healthier.
