Just because my head is screwed up...

I hadn't read ANY of my sparkpeople messages for several days. So I was going through reading the articles and exercises and things.

One of the messages was talking about portion control. And it gave the example of cheeses. For an ounce of regular cheese it said it was the size of two dice. I guess for most people this would probably be simple.

However, I couldn't help but wonder for a minute "What die?" Are they talking a d20, a d12? Are they talking normal size? Or tiny? THIS IS TOO HARD!!!

After a minute or two I realized that they were not righting the article for gamer girls. They OBVIOUSLY meant that it was the size of two normal d6s. But man did it blow my mind for a minute or two!

Congratulations on the 10% loss. You worked hard for it. When I'm into precise measurements, I use my WW scale set to grams. On most packaged foods that say you can eat 1/2 cup for example, it also says how many grams are involved. With cheese, I also usually weight out in grams. That's when I'm being strict with myself.
