I have little or no awareness of portion control. There, it’s out there. One measure of coco pops isn’t enough to fill one of the bowls for the boys. So tomorrow, it’s weetabix, so see if they are any better. I don’t think that it’s going to be toast with chocolate spread.
I want to write, “thanks Weight Watchers” but right now I don’t feel very grateful. I feel grumpy. One of the pots of the chocolate mousse that I usually have with the boys is 500 calories per pot. I image that it’s around 9 pro points. I can tell that because a 91 calorie muller light yoghurt with chocolate flakes is 2 pro points.
I hope you don’t think this is all too lame, to cliched, but I’m on my wagon. I’m working out what’s appropriate and what’s not from a portion control perspective. And it’s not glamorous. I don’t feel like I’m “playing the game” like those lush women in the adverts were at the start of the year. But it’s practical. It’s form filling in and it’s counting. And I have to stick at it. Hopefully, when I do a weigh in, and it’s worked, I’ll feel better.
But right now all I want is a chocolate mousse :(
