Resolutions 3 & 4 - Measure Your Food, Just One Plate
I have trouble with portion control. I think that servings apply to other people. I look at what I eat and I think, "My diet isn't that bad, why does my weight keep going up?" Yes, one reason is I exercise in spurts (a few weeks here, a few weeks several months later, etc.). However, a big reason is that I don't exercise control when it comes to measuring out food. And if I do manage to put an appropriate amount on my plate, then I proceed to fill up my plate again.
I am sure that somewhere in my past, either or both of these have been resolutions. However, that doesn't mean I shouldn't try again. And I am making EVERYONE in the house adhere to the measuring your food rules, and two of us are sticking to just one plate. A growing boy is entitled to two servings (measured servings), right? It takes time, measuring out things to the proper amounts for each and every meal, each and every day. But I would like to think a healthier version of me is worth it.
I'm worth it, I'm worth it, I'm worth it! Are you?
