So… Portion sizes are catching on…

I love my pasta.  And it has never slowed me down when I go to a restaurant and I get a big plate of pasta — I eat it all.  Then when I get home and I look at the calories I consumed I find out that that one bowl of pasta was actually two servings.  The problem is I got used to eating that much.  But now after three weeks of watching my portion sizes I’m starting to see a difference.  Not a huge difference on the scales yet, but that’s coming.  What I saw today, what really surprised me, was that we went out to dinner and I got a big old plate of pasta and I brought half of it home.  Better yet, I didn’t eat it after I got home.  It’s going to be tomorrow’s lunch.

I know that is a small victory, but it’s a victory I’ve been waiting for.

In other news, I finally received the camera I ordered via Groupon two weeks ago.  I’ve never had a problem with slow shipping when I ordered stuff from Groupon before but this particular seller was horrible.  The problem is that I can’t even tell you who it was because I don’t know.  None of the paperwork that was shipped with the camera had their return address on it, just the return address for Groupon.  The only thing I know about this company is that (1) they are in New Jersey and (2) they actually did finally send me my camera after two weeks.  And I love it!  I spent the evening playing with it.  Ok, so I spent the entire day playing with it.  I’ve driven the peeps on FB crazy with my talking about it.  I’ll spare you.  For today.  But your day is coming soon.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      I’m using WordPress, the online version. They do have a version that you can host on your own server. I’ve used that, too.
