Listening to advice from a fellow weight loss surgery support group member I decided to go to Bed Bath and Beyond and pick up some portion appropriate ramkins. I love ramkins, they are microwave safe, oven safe. they make great dipping sauce containers, and now, well they are my plate!! It is nice to know that this is the size of portion I can have, put in container, take 20 minutes to eat it. I have read and heard all about the portions, 1/4 cup at the beginning, 2 Tblsp, 2oz's. But seeing it in my hand.....WOW! So this is my future folks.
