First Time Mom and Losing It: 4 Months and 2 Weeks Down and Eating Right with the Mira Kitchen Scale

4 Months and 2 Weeks Down and Eating Right with the Mira Kitchen Scale

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Weigh In:  No weigh in this week. I am trying a new scale that gives you the option to only tell you how much you lost. It also has a pretty cool techy feature! Review to be posted in a couple of weeks!

Sunday was my daughter's birthday and birthday party so I was too busy to go to the gym. I didn't prepare for all the errands and preparations for the party so I ate out a lot. I didn't take the time to make healthy choices so I pretty much ate what was convenient. I did do a lot of walking and moving around but did not get to the gym, do strength training or restart the plank challenge.

I am not upset that I didn't make the goal of 50 pounds by my daughter's birthday because I decided to just have fun at my daughter's party. The house was full of family and friends and my daughter had a blast with her cousins.

Today I am starting the Skinny Jane diet and have planned my three days at the gym. I have also planned when I will do my strength training and plank challenge. I have set reminders on my phone so that I can stop what I am doing and get it done.

In order for me to be successful in my eating plan I am pulling out the awesome Mira Kitchen Scale that I got to review. The scale is so sleek and thin that it takes no room at all in my kitchen cabinets. I am the type that has tons of kitchen tools so space is very limited.

I love that the light up LED is huge! I remember using a dial kitchen scale and the numbers were so tiny that I had to go right up close and guess what the number was.

In order to be really successful when you are on a diet plan that is strategically set in place for you, you have to weigh your food. The Mira Kitchen Scale makes is super easy because with the Tare feature you can zero out your measuring container and only weigh the food.

You may think that it is tedious to weigh your food. If you are really serious about weight loss and are having a hard time losing weight you may be eating more that you think. I used to always take just handfuls of nuts without knowing exactly how many calories I am eating. Now I weigh my snacks ahead of time and place them into containers to eat for the day. When I finish my snacks I know exactly how much calories I have consumed.

You can get your own Mira Kitchen Scale on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FF1728M

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  5. Weigh everything you eat - that's the only way to know for sure how many calories you're intaking.

  13. I guess you have a better motivation when you can always measure it through the scale. Good luck on the weight loss goal.

  14. I like the scale with only telling you how much you lost and not your weight. I think that would be more motivating. Good luck on your goals this week!

  16. I think it's super important to weigh and measure too. Aside from tracking intake, it helps you learn what proper portion sizes look like.

  26. Gym time is such a challenge. Now I don't know what in the world I was thinking when I was making excuses as a single person! As a mom, your time is limited but this is sooo necessary!
