Portion Control is working

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

PC for me is a matter of being very alert and to measure. It is easy for me to say.."Oh that's a half cup, when it's actually more than a cup. Also, I have been known to argue.. oh what's one Hagen Das pop? It's not the pop actually, but sugar, for me, starts a craving.

I'm losing weight as I change my perspective on my food. This is not a diet but it's "This is how I eat"
Funny that when someone asks about our pet's diet, we know immediately that they want to know what the pet eats; it has nothing to do with being "on a diet".

So my diet is made up of vegetables and again vegetables, fruits, grains and some protein.
As I let the sugary processed foods out the door, I feel better. I hope to have fewer headaches as well.
Tomorrow will be Day Ten of my return to SparkPeople.

    I know - that 1/2 cup almost always is almost a cup when I try to eye-measure it, so I'm still using a measuring cup for my cereal. I trust my eye for a cup though...maybe I shouldn't. I'm with you on the perspective too. I've been eating more fruits, veggies & whole grains for a few years. It's natural to me now. Just have to still watch the portions. :) emoticon

    Hello, my dear! So wonderful to see you back!! I think you will see and feel wonderful results! And you're right - it is about changing your perspective, mindset, etc! I always try yo remind myself that although I like to enjoy my food, it really is fuel for my body and I need to fuel it with the best quality I can manage!
