      Hi Gillian,

      I just realised that I’m still weighing certain foods, such as calorific ones for my meals. Should I stop doing this? I think it’s from when I macro / calorie counted to lose weight and I’ve just got into the habit of doing it so I can keep an eye on my portion size.
      Thank you

      Grace,

      I’m not too sure one way or the other with this. It could be that you have very real non-weight (that’s your weight, not the food!) benefits to this, even though it may have started for purely weight loss reasons.

      I suggest you connect with that non-weight motivation to weigh food, assuming it’s there for you. And maybe a bit later on in the course try not weighing these things to see what happens and how you feel about it? I’d leave that until after Week 4.

      Hi Grace

      I had to join in the email trail as I stopped myself from weighing my porridge this morning – not easy as my life has been forever checking weights, calories, points etc. Old habits die hard! I’m sure Gillian will agree that we should stop weighing and measuring!

      Hi Gillian (and Jennie), I think that’s the perfect idea for me personally and where I am at, at the moment. I will give that a try and focus on the non weight benefits.

      I hope this helps you too Jennie…I weigh my porridge every morning too!

      Thanks
      Grace

      I still weigh my food but some of the time it’s about getting enough. Other times it’s about not eating too much. But yes I question whether or not I should be weighing food at all.
