Check your scales, ladies and gentlemen!
Your FOOD SCALES, that is.
Okay... at the risk of sounding a little OCD again...
I had a feeling that my food scale wasn't exactly accurate.
It was about 8 years old, non-digital, and pretty grubby looking.
I was very careful at measuring the meat and cheeses I have been eating ever since I started this weight loss journey back in January.
My scale has not been accurate for at least the past week.
I noticed that I had to measure and remeasure my food a few times because the scale was giving me various weights.
No, I don't weigh all of my food. I just weigh the ones that measure by ounces.
I threw out that stupid old non-working scale and bought me this digital beauty.
It is so beautiful and very accurate.
I measured my lean ham deli slices at 2 ounces, and I was shocked.
I was putting twice as much of that meat in my english muffins all of last week!
Don't even get me started on how much cream cheese I actually put on all of those muffins!
Yikes! That may be one of the reasons why I only had a 1/2 pound loss.
I measured all my meats and cheeses with that dumb non-working scale!
Anyways... this might be a small issue with you, but it's a pretty big deal to me.
Eating 4 oz. of pork sirloin is much healthier than almost 8 oz.!
