Hello Tera. Cute puppy in your pic. You've been given great advice but I wanted to add my $.02. Get a digital scale to weigh your portions. You don't have to even pay a lot for it. I too count my calories. The scale helped me see how much more food I was or was not eating. If you weigh cooked food you don't measure water. Hang in there. Its hard at first but does get easier over time. There is a quote floating on the internet. "Dieting is hard...being over weigh is hard...pick your hard." Good luck.
