wow! just by watching my calories/fat and portions

I have lost about 2 lbs. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm 5'4" and around 130. I exercise anyways, but the calories/fat/portions were a little out of control. I put them in check and the weightloss really was simple and felt effortless, except for my workouts!

Duh, right :)

Good work! I know exactly how you feel. I lost all my 'baby weight' and am losing more, by watching calories and portion sizes. I'm amazed how easily it's come off! It really does work! Keep it up!

OP here

One "trick" I used, was to use a smaller plate when I dished up meals, I would dish up a little bit and if I went back for seconds, that was fine, since I wasn't eating a whole bunch to start with.

I've been reading labels like crazy and taking in consideration the actual serving size. So instead of eating a box of triskets, I just ate the serving size and ate it slow and mindfully. As for fat, I have been trying to limit it to around 50 grams a day, not sure if this is the best, but for me it's working and helping me reach my goal.

So I guess it sounds like a lot of work, but really it isn't. When I read a label and really see how much I should eat, I know to stop there!

How long did it take for you to lose the pounds? A week or a month?

I weighed myself last Wednesday and everyday since, I did that because I know that my weight fluctuates with water retention, but my weight stayed the same and dropped first 1 lb then .5 then .5.

I'll keep you posted when I lose the next 2 lbs :)
