Today I had lunch at Red Lobster , and much to my suprise , I must start measuring my portions again. Its a wonder I have not gained weight over these last couple months! Haven't lost either, thats the problem. Well , I ordered a portion measured lunch consisted of 3 oz of baked fish, a half cup of crabmeat stuffing a cup of fresh green beans and a salad with fat free raspberry vinaigrette. Which was supposed to be under 600 calories, and WAS very tasty! However , I noticed my portions at home have gotten a bit larger than I should have, along with all of the holiday goodies that I have had (in moderation I can say) is the reason I just haven't lost anything recently. So , for dinner I measured my cup of chili as I haven't done so with soups, mac and cheese , potatoes, and so forth.
The point is , we get confident in what we think we know and slip back into our old eating habits so quickly.
For this last month, before my one year anniversary I am going to measure all of my portions of whatever I have to try to reach my goal of 60 lbs.in one year. That may not seem like a lot to some of you .however it is 5 lbs a month average loss and that's good enough for me.
Wish me luck
