My trusty food scale

I bought an electric food scale with a good sized removable surface that is easy to wash. The scale stays on the kitchen counter, Instead of estimating I weigh my portions. This has really helped with eating the right serving size and getting an immediate visual of how much common foods weigh. Now when I eat out I have that image in my head and it keeps me on target.

Teenagers, Show Me,Don't Tell Me

My daughter who is 18 is probably in the obese category. I have asked her directly to take a look at SparkTeen but she refuses. What I realized is that the indirect approach seems to have more effect. I make sure to track when she is in the room. I measure my food and she notices because we are often in the kitchen together. Slowly I hope to show good habits, be available for questions and stoke that slow burning fire so that when she is ready she will have the tools and information available.
