When it comes to measuring my food, I am learning that I need to underestimate myself. Always. I am getting better and better about eye-balling my food portions, but when I take the time to measure it all out, I am always in for a little surprise.
As we all embark on our weightloss journey, a great set of measuring cups is an absolute must. I use them for everything; even down to the 1 tablespoon of sugar that I put into my tea and oatmeal every morning. YES, it is tedious. BUT, I see results when I commit to measuring every morsel of food that passes my lips. I also try not to overload my measuring cups or pack it down too much.
