After reading the article about small plates I saw the most adorable small butterfly plates at Cracker Barrel! I love butterflies and I felt like this was my sign to purchase a beautiful small plate to eat all my meals on! Even though they were extremely expensive ($7.00) I decided to purchase 4 of them and I am definitely eating less than normal and feeling just as full!

Thanks for the comment about using smaller bowls, too, that is so true. This is a simple way to help ourselves to eat healthier, without feeling guilty. I'm all for this idea, and the club.

Same for bowls too - I have big bowls that I was using for soup, cereal, even ice cream that probably held 2-3 times the recommended serving size. Now I use smaller bowls for these and keep the big bowls for salads and fruit where I can afford to eat a bigger serving.

I will join this one, because this seems like one, that I can do. I recently switched to these size plates. I could see, the difference in the amount of food, I was eating before. I realized, in doing this, I had been over-eating. Thanks for the e-mail asking me to join this club. emoticon

Switching your plates from large dinner plates to smaller lunch sized plates makes a huge difference in your weigh ins! I got some beautiful antique lunch plates at Goodwill, or you could buy some new ones to spoil yourself. Be sure to make yourself feel special.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.
200 plus lbs lost without surgery, crazy diets, or extreme exercise- so have hope!
