Yes, weigh.

Hey you!  The Blogger , Reader or Lurker who is struggling to lose weight.  You know, the one who really watches what they eat and can't figure out why the number on the scale isn't budging.  The one who just can't seem to break through the plateau.  I have something to share with you.

This video puts something huge into perspective for me.  Maybe it will for you, too.

Oh wow... I never even thought of it like that. =S That's crazy! Thanks for sharing, though. Definitely food for thought (no pun intended).

Uggggggggggggggggggggh. Great. Juuust great.

I know it's true, too.

Until I can get a scale, I'll keep the measurements lower than I already do. She had my measuring cups, too. So...now I know to do it well below the lip of the cup. It really does explain a lot.

Thanks for sharing!!!

Wow. Time to get a scale maybe and not be using those measuring spoons!

Thanks for posting this!

That was a really interesting video. I do use my food scale, but not usually for things I measure.

I guess I should be more careful about how I measure things out.

Thanks!

Holy Moly!

I'm so buying the Weight Watcher scale today! I know I have a measuring problem!

Thanks for the eye opener!

That's why I always just eat the entire container; it's the only way to know for sure...

I measure nothing. UGH, I am awful. :/

And on another, hopefully not-totally-creepy note, a really long time ago I left a comment on your blog to the effect of, "Hey! I live in Green Bay, but if I lived in Milwaukee I'd totally go grab a beer with you sometime." Well, I once again live in Milwaukee (YEEESSSSSSS! I love you, Milwaukee - though at present it is cold as all get out). If you ever want someone to grab a beer with, I'd love to!

Wow. that hurts! And yes, I DO lick the spoon.
Thanks., I think!

ha ha....I would never over-measure like that and I would give the peanut butter on the spoon to the dog, but some time later, I would just go have a piece of chocolate cake and not measure it at all.
