Downsized my plates!

I saw a book that shows how 1963 dinner plates averaged 9" compared to today's, which are 12" wide. I found 9-inch 'Food Network' "salad" plates at Kohl's that I use for dinner plates. The smaller plates make portions look bigger. Kohl's also has 1-cup ceramic bowls and Target has 2-cup cereal bowls. Now when I put something to eat into a bowl, I know how much I have without measuring. emoticon

Change your language

Substitute "committed" for "willpower." Willpower is a noun that suggests all or nothing, you either have it or don't - like being born with blue eyes. "Committed" is a verb that suggests decisive action and being in control. 'Having your committment level flag a little from time to time' doesn't carry the same negative feelings as 'losing your willpower'. Forget the willpower. Be committed instead.
