I am holding at 122 lbs. And I feel comfortable. I use a small salad plate for my meals. And if the food requires a bowl, I use a small dessert bowl. I still have the set of spoons I used for my kids when they were learning to feed themselves. The spoons have a small bowl and I take smaller mouthfuls using the spoons. So by using smaller eating utensils, I have smaller helpings and eat less, yet my plate looks full every time I eat. The bowl of the spoons is about the size of a long ice tea spoon.

I didn't set out to deliberately eat this way. It is just the dishes I find easiest to reach. But I really think it has been the main contribution to my weight loss.

I've lost 10 pounds in 8 weeks. 139# down to 129#. Still have a few more pounds to go before I can fit into some clothes I have. Doing this darn low carbohydrate diet.

It's that dang plateau. Everybody's nemesis. But it does pass. Congrats!

Not with me, my loss has been steady, without the "fade" diets some have been bantering about lately. I eat what I want, just less of it.

I am back on the healthy eating wagon, again.....
We discontinued our cafe & catering business at the end of 2015.
I am now working as a "Butcher" at a local grocery store in town.
It feels a little strange being out of foodservice as that is most all I have done for the past 35 years.
I' m looking for healthy options for boxed lunches, any good ideas out there?
