Dieting with children is tough. I used to hate when my mother decided she wanted to “lose a few pounds” because that meant we ALL were going on a diet. In the blink of an eye every unhealthy morsel would be swept from the house and suddenly it looked like the Great Depression hit our pantry.
Here at MoscatoMom I talk a lot about Portion Control. After years of thinking that my extra weight was because of my sedentary all-I-do-is-sit-at-a-computer-all-day lifestyle, I joined a gym, committed to working out… and had very minimal results. Turns out it was what I was eating that was making me fat – and more importantly the amount that I was eating. A few minor changes and I am now quickly losing the excess weight, and feeling great.
