If you notice, I have weights and measurements for a lot of my food and that is because I still literally weigh and measure out much of the food I eat. Sometimes, I can eye-ball it, but I am still not comfortable doing that. And really, I don’t mind measuring out and weighing my food. It really keeps me from over eating. It keeps my portions in check, which has been and always will be a problem for me. 

Well, I hope that shed some light into my world of eating. Some days are good, some days aren’t. But overall, I am pleased with my food choices…..most of the time.
