Measuring Food

I recently bought a food scale because I was having a hard time knowing what is considered a reasonable portion. I use it pretty much every day! I have found it very helpful because often times, we may think that we're eating the "right" amount of food but are usually over indulging. I use the scale to measure my nuts, fruits, rice/quinoa before eating.

I weigh myself everyday

Although most experts say to weigh yourself once a week, I weigh myself everyday. it keeps me on track and I can by tracking my food intake on Sparkpeople, I can analyze what works and what doesn't. How the food and calories affect my weight on a day to day basis.

Weights and Measures!

Weigh and measure everything that you cook and eat! Most of us suffer from proportion distortion and underestimate what we eat.
When you take the time to measure liquids and weigh solids, you will come to learn just how much you're eating!

Never Give Up

When I weigh in for the week and the number on the scale isn't the one I wanted to see, I don't freak out over it, I don't beat myself up or decide to give up. Instead I take a good long look at myself in the mirror and find five things that I like about my body. Five things that I didn't like BEFORE I started eating and acting healthy and I remind myself that I'm happier than I've been in my life.

This helps me

If I weigh 184 lbs I think to myself that I weigh 182 lbs. I tell myself over and over (in my head) that I weigh 182 lbs until I actually do weigh 182 lbs. Then I tell myself I weigh 180 lbs. etc. You get the idea. Sounds strange, but it works for me. emoticon

Determining serving weights

When I cook, I weigh the entire result in grams. I then divide by the number of servings. I enter that into SP as a new food. Say a serving is 100 gr. If I cut a slice & it is 80 or 125 grams, I change grams when I enter a food for that day, & it will recalculate nutrients accordingly.

Scale Tricks

Want to weigh less on weigh-in? First, eat at a reasonable time at night like 5-6PM, especially a low cal dinner like a piece of fish or meat & a small salad, & don't eat after that. Take an evening walk or do your exercising after dinner. In the morning, weigh yourself as soon as you get up, & naked.

I Weigh Myself Every Day!

I know this goes against what everyone says, but I wake up in the morning, use the bathroom, then weigh myself. I know the number is going to fluctuate, but it keeps me accountable!
