Sunday, January 31 - End of month weigh in!
Ok you’ve put in the hard yards; kept your New Year’s pact and stuck to your eating plans. “To keep up the good work and stop a weight plateau remember to weigh yourself regularly even if you hate it!,” says Susie.
“In fact the US Weight Control Registry cites regularly weighing as one of the key things those who have lost weight and kept it off for the long term.
Remember to weight yourself at the same time each week, ideally on a Monday after weekend indulgences, not on a Friday. Do it first thing in the morning for a more accurate gauge.”

How to quickly determine portion sizes for your meals...
- 1 serve of rice or pasta = a fist
- 1 piece of meat, fish or chicken = the size and width of a deck of cards
- 1 serve of cheese = one slice, or 4 small cubes that could fit in a matchbox
- 1 serve of butter = your fingertip
The meal plans plus two selections from the snacks add up to roughly 5800kj a day; compared to around 8,800 for an averaged sized Aussie woman’s daily intake.
