Self control

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Of which I lack MOST often and it's very frustrating... So on my bible reading, "God is my portion"

Portion control... I can only imagine that 1/2 of america doesn't really know / understand the meaning of portion control. As much as we can say, "I'm measuring and watching" we also think that were actually watching ourselves, yes, we are... watching ourselves rely too much on our "eye perspective." What does that do for anyone?

I need to really watch, measure with utensils, etc. Make 1 plate and if that hasn't hit me as being enough, wait about 30 minutes, if by then I don't feel satisfied, fruit, whole bag of green giant vegetables. Like I tell my kids, and don't seem to follow my own advice off hand.... "If you're that hungry, you'll enjoy an apple or salad." Hmm... might need to take my own advice, eh? ;)

Ok... signing off... tomorrow is a new day and I WILL combat this nasty cycle of over-kill of food....

    You can do it! The utensils really help a lot! I love my food scale :) Sides like mashed potatoes and rice don't even touch my plate unless they're coming out of a measuring cup. I have a set of nesting scoops, and the 1/2 cup scoop is my best freind!
